CalROCS – Season Final

Wednesday, September 14th, 2011

2011 CalROCS - Round 5CalROCS is a ‘run what you brung,’ grassroots rock crawling series, which is designed to allow anyone to compete, as well as put on a spectator friendly, and family friendly, action packed event. Each weekend starts the same way: competitors walk the new courses that CalROCS has laid out and they share stories of past events, achievements, and carnage. They cannot wait to hit the rock so they can get new stories to share around the campfire, new achievements, and new broken parts to fix, just so they can do it all over again. Read More→

CalROCS Round 4Saturday morning July 30, 2011, all the CalROCS competitors are excited to finally take on the course at Donner Ski Ranch. Donner is always the favorite spot for competitors and spectators, so of course it is the perfect location for Round 4 of the CalROCS extreme rock crawling series. As the competitors walk the new courses that CalROCS has laid out, they share stories of past events, achievements, and carnage. They cannot wait to hit the rock so they can get new stories to share around the campfire, new achievements, and new broken parts to fix, just so they can do it all over again. Read More→

Saturday June 25th: The weekend started in the early hours with the drivers walking the new courses that Kurtis Harryman had laid out for them. Harryman knew all the drivers were disappointed that they could not run at Donnor this weekend. The amount of snowfall, the Tahoe area received this winter broke records and is still melting off. This is why Round 3 of the CalROCS extreme racing series had to be moved to Brown Valley.

CalROCS had a few tricks up their sleeves to pick up the drivers’ spirits. Harryman brought out “Frank’s Backhoe, Inc.” to help change the landscape a bit. They dug into the earth, making hug holes around the already challenging obstacles and found massive boulders that were used to build rock gardens to flex all the rigs to the max. The drivers could not wait to hit these new obstacles and be the first to conquer them. Harryman set up bonus lines around the best new lines to encourage the drivers to put on a show for the crowd. Read More→
