200 to Converge in Doyle for Diamondback Hare Scrambles


It’s that time again to expect around 200 motocross riders for the Diamondback hare scrambles, even if it means riding in the mud.

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is preparing for the dirtbike racing event coming to the Doyle area. Riders of all ages can sign up to race on the day of the event. However, the BLM cautions riders to be mindful of the muddy conditions due to weather, although the snow is expected to melt off from the course. The event will take place rain or shine. For safety reasons, only registered riders will have trail access, but designated viewing areas are available if you plan to watch the races. If you plan to camp, overnight accommodations are available at the Raptor Trailhead off the Main Fort Sage entrance. According to Emily Ryan, manager of the BLM Eagle Lake Field office, they are collaborating with the race organizers to design a racecourse that will present challenges to the racers while avoiding areas of wildfire recovery.

Interested racers can contact Chriss Maas by calling 775-772-1582 to register.
