The 49th Annual Kenda Stumpjumpers Desert 100 is only 3 weeks away on April 6th & 7th 2019. It’s time to dust off your riding gear, motorcycle, RV, and get ready for another great family weekend of riding and racing in Odessa. A few important reminders for this year:
Pre-registration is open now. Registration forms must be received by March 31st.

The gates will open at NOON THURSDAY April 4th. You are able to get in and setup your camp, but we ask that no riding take place until Friday morning. NO EXCEPTIONS! If you arrive before Noon on Thursday, you will NOT be able to park on the shoulder of Irby Road or Hwy 28. Last year we received report from a very angry neighbor that people were trespassing on his property trying to turn around in his driveway. To avoid this problem, we ask that you NOT turn onto Irby Road until noon on Thursday. Please go visit the town of Odessa if you show up early, or line up on Kagele Road so you are just South of Hwy 28 across from camp. If you get to Odessa early, head into town and stock up on groceries and gas. The town of Odessa is a huge supporter of the Stumpjumpers and the offroad community, so the more support we can give them, the better. The gate fee is $10 per person. 12 & Under are free.

For 2019 we will once again have the Beginners Ladies Ride! This ride is to promote beginner riders in a non intimidating environment. It is a chance for beginner women to ride some easy terrain without getting run over by the fast guys and gals on the poker run course. The ride will be on the kid’s race course, immediately following the kid’s races Saturday morning. This event is free. NO BIG BIKES. 19″ Front wheel size max. No racers. This is a very special piece of land used for the kids race, and we want to preserve it for future use. The ride will be 45 minutes to an hour long. Space is limited, MUST RSVP to email@example.com
Sponsors and Vendors:
We are excited to have Kenda as the title sponsor. Our vendor row will once again have a great diversity of products for you to purchase at great prices onsite.
There is only one sponsor this year providing Trailer and RV Rentals. Wenatchee RV Rentals: We have 16 units to choose from and have generators to rent for each unit if needed. Please visit our website at www.wenatcheerv.com and take a look at what we have to offer! Click the picture links to see the floor plans. I look forward to another great year and will be my pleasure to help anyone with a great camping experience! Mike Fischer (owner) 509-860-1055 firstname.lastname@example.org

- 509 is offering a contingency program for riders wearing their gear. They will have a booth on vendor row as well so stop by and check them out.
The more 509 you wear, and the higher you place, the more $$$ you earn. This program is a great opportunity for riders participating in the 100 mile race to receive big podium payouts as well as 50% of 509 Offroad gear.

***This year there will also be a special payout provided by Matt Webb for the top finishers of the 100 mile overall in memory of the three-time winner of the D100, Kevin Parks (KP10).
No campfires! Period! Propane fires are allowed. Our rule of thumb is this: If you can turn the fire off with a switch, it’s allowed. We can’t risk a fire in camp, and will enforce this rule very strictly. If you are caught with a fire that can’t be turned off, we will extinguish it for you and ask you to leave.
Helmets must be worn at all times! Anyone on a moving motorcycle, including passengers, children, people on pitbikes, etc., MUST wear a helmet at all times. If you’re seen riding without a helmet, you will be asked to get off and walk back to your camp to get one.
First gear only in camp! There are thousands of acres to ride out there. There is no reason to ride fast in camp. Keep it in first gear and ride safely in camp until you’re out past the rope line that marks the camp boundary.
No riding at night! This is another obvious safety rule. Make sure your bike is back at your camp by nightfall. We will be enforcing this rule this year, especially around the beer tent.
No UTVs, quads, or golf carts. This is a motorcycle only event, even in camp. Please leave your quads and UTVs at home. You will be turned away at the gate if you try to bring one of these in to camp.
The poker run is not a race! Please be courteous to the other riders on the course on Saturday.
Your cooperation with these rules will help keep this a fun and safe weekend for everyone! See you in April!
