The 8th Annual Mx des States event is rapidly approaching and is to be held February 19, 2022 at the famed Waldo Motorsports Mx facility in Waldo, FL. This year, we have amazing support from Van Meter Engineering who has stepped up big to be the Title Sponsor and GSD2 & Palmetto Motorsports as our Gold sponsors. The Mx des States event is a team event for a variety of classes. In addition to the team classes (3 per team), this year we have added a couple individual (non team) classes.
How the team format works and scoring. If you're familiar with the Mx of Nations (Mx des Nations) it's similar to that but with a twist. With our Mx des States, the team consists of 3 riders and all 3 will be on the track at the same time in the same moto. There will be two motos. The riders will be scored independently and then the individual scores will be combined to give us the Team scores. For example, if your team members finish 2nd, 5th and 8th that would give your team a total of 15 points. Both motos will be added up and the team with the lowest score total after two motos will win the overall. In years past, we had teams from 12 different states which makes this a competitive and fun event.
Also, for the second consecutive year, we will be joining forces with the AHRMA S.E. Regional Motocross series. They will be running Round #2 of their regional series during the Mx des States event on Saturday. The AHRMA motos are slated to run between the Mx des States motos. This will allow a nice break/rest period between the Mx des States classes as well as offer additional classes for you to get more seat/ride time.

RULES for the MX des States Event:
Vintage team class:
This includes most all 1974-older bikes and 1975 bikes that are a “like design” (see below a list of “like design” bikes). This is a open skill level class. The main concern with this class is suspension travel. Having newer components are allowed for safety reasons but the amount of travel allowed is limited to 7” in front and 4” in the rear. We are not going to put a tape measure to every bike but if it doesn’t pass the eye test then it will be measured. There will be tech inspection for the vintage bikes so please don't show up with bikes that do not qualify.
The 1975 “like design” bikes include:
Bultaco 250 Pursang
Can Am 125 TNT
Can Am 175 TNT
Can Am 250 TNT
CZ 250 Falta
Husqvarna 250 WR
Husqvarna 400 WR
Kawasaki KX250 (also ’76)
Kawasaki KX400 (also ’76)
Ossa Desert Phantom 250
Suzuki TM 100
Suzuki TM 125
Suzuki TM 250
Suzuki TM 400
Yamaha YZ 125
Yamaha MX 125
Yamaha MX 175
* Some makes and models in 1974-75 had a limited number of machines with suspension specifications that surpassed the 4" / 7" norm. Those bikes are NOT eligible unless the suspension travel is reduced to fit within the rules. Regardless of the year, make and model of your bike the suspension requirements must be within our rules. Some of these bikes include '74 Bultaco, '74 Montesa, '74 CCM and '74 KTM.
Post Vintage team class:
Watercooled and disc brakes are ok but cannot be newer than 1989. This is a open skill level class.
Modern, 50+ team classes and 60+ individual class:
There is no limitation to bikes used in these classes. Run what you brung. The Modern team class and 50+ team are open skill level classes. The 60+ individual classes are categorized in 3 skill levels (A, B and C). Plaques will be awarded to the top 5 of each skill level.
2-Stroke individual class:
Any c.c. bike eligible but must be 2-stroke engine. The 2-stroke individual class is categorized into 3 skill levels (A, B and C). Plaques will be awarded to the top 5 of each skill level.
Only requirement here is that you must be over 30 years old. Any bike of any c.c. is eligible. There will be 3 skill levels available (A, B and C). Plaques will be awarded to top 5 of each skill level.
- For team classes, if one of your teammates does not complete 1 lap, you will be scored as "Did not Start" (DNS) and will be given 40 points for that rider's result. If you complete at least one lap but no other then you will be scored last place points.
- If you have a bike failure during one of your motos you will be able to use another bike for the next moto as long as it's within bike rules and scoring staff has been notified.
