SXS ADVENTURE RALLY ON THE ROCKS MAY 11-13 2023
WHERE TO RIDE: SXSAR HURRICANE UTAH
At the SxS Adventure Rally On The Rocks, there were 12 daily guided rides with two easy loops (Top of the World and Dino Tracks), four moderate rides Rated 4-6 (West Rim, Milts Mile, West Rim Lite, and Razzle Dazzle) and six challenging red-rock rides (Double Sammy, Sliprock/John’s Trail, Plan B, The Ledges, Triple 7, and The Maze all Rated 7 or 8). All have spectacular red-rock formations, and The Maze and Plan B snake along the top of a beautiful escarpment with awesome views of the valley below. There is also open desert, dunes, and sand wash sections, which have been used in past WORCS courses. Also, there are plenty of obstacles not on the guided rides, like The Chute at the end of Double Sammy and The Toilet Bowl by Plan B, and local crawlers are making new rock trails every week.
Rides take off from the rally headquarters at 10:30 with lunch on the trails, and they return around 2:30-3:00PM to give rally goers time to sign up for Polaris and Yamaha demo rides. New for 2023, Utahrequires all non-resident OHVers to complete a free safety course; go to www.sxsadventurerally.com for the link
Each of three ride days begin with a Camp Chef breakfast starting at 9:00AM, then the guided rides take off at 10:30AM. Since each ride go through a tunnel under a road, ride departures are orderly and efficient. Friday also has food trucks for dinner at 5:00PM followed by a Grand Raffle at 6:30PM and HCR-Presents Runaway Fire in concert afterwards, complete with bonfires. The rally costs $45 per person per day or $145 onsite for three days of guided rides, insurance, BLM/state fees, three breakfasts, and a T-shirt if you pre-registered online. Primitive camping is $25-$35 per night, and hookups are $50 per night. There is also a $15 park entrance fee, but it was $10 for those registering online.
Also, the May dates let rally attendees cool off in the reservoir or cruise personal watercraft, as the former November dates were wetsuit-only with cold winds and temperatures. There is even a UTV, ATV, and PWC rental company onsite, so those interested in getting into the sport can rent rides for 2023! The 2023 SxS Adventure ROTR will be held on May 11-13, and we’ll see you there!
