ICE RACING BASICS

By the staff of Dirt Wheels with Josh Underwood, Photos by Stephen Tripp/www.stephentripp.com ICE RACING BASICS There is nothing Dirt Wheels loves more than a letter or an e-mail with a radical, high-quality photo included. Some relevant info is just a gilded frame on the shot. And then there are exceptional days like when we hear from photographer Stephen Tripp. We heard from Stephen out of the blue after the 2018 Daytona SX quad race. He was wondering if we wanted to use any of his photos from the event.…

UTV TAKEOVER INVADES OKLAHOMA

UTV TAKEOVER INVADES OKLAHOMA It was tons of fun for everyone when the UTV Takeover Invades Oklahoma event came to Little Sahara State Park in Waynoka, Oklahoma. This was back in September of 2020. Cara Miller was nice enough to send us some good photos of the action. From the looks of things, it seems like a good time was had by all.  Kevin Morris and his RZR put in some quick laps around the Short Course Competition. Tyler Hill put on a good show in the Wheelie Competition. Rusian Yankilevich catches some big air…

RIDING WITH THE COOL GROUP

By Karel Kramer RIDING WITH THE COOL GROUP We all know at least one of “those” guys. The one that has to have all of the cool stuff on his quad or UTV. The colors are coordinated, the stickers are perfectly placed, the tire tread bristles with critically sharp edges, and the machine itself is one the internet is still buzzing about. There is nothing wrong with this sort of obsession on the face of it. If your friend is the sort that has the ability to employ this sort of motorized perfection, or his choice of…

HELP KEEP PISMO BEACH OPEN

HELP KEEP PISMO BEACH OPEN Most people call it Pismo Beach, but its official name is Oceano Dunes. This is the only beach in all of California where you can ride a dirt bike, ATV, UTV, or dune buggy. It's located about a two-hour drive north of Los Angeles and just south of San Luis Obispo on the Pacific Coast. It's the ultimate place to go riding during the hot summer months because there's usually a cool breeze coming off the ocean. Even though we've always been able to go riding at Pismo, certain people are now…

WHERE TO RIDE

By Karel Kramer WHERE TO RIDE There are excellent reasons why most of us are creatures of habit. In the case of off-roaders, that means that we ride or drive the same type of machines in the same place with the same people. That totally makes sense. At your favorite ride spot, there is no wasted mental effort searching for a trail or wondering whether you are looking at a dead-end or a through-route. Piloting the same machine has good points as well. You know every creak, rattle, and bump, so mechanical issues have…
