Minnesota 1000


2017 Minnesota 1000
June 9 - 11, 2017

Join us for the 2017 Minnesota 1000 Motorcycle Rally on June 9-11, 2017.

The same as last year, Motoprimo in Lakeville, MN will be rally headquarters for the start and finish of the rally.

Rally staff will be on hand at Motoprimo starting at 6:00 p.m. on Friday, June 9 for the Liars Banquet. When you arrive, you will need to sign in and you'll receive your rally swag.

Dinner will be served starting at 6:30 p.m. Then at 7:30 we’ll have a rider's meeting to go over some of the basic rules and hand out rally packets. Your rally packet will include printed route sheets, your rally flag and a flash drive containing GPS coordinates in .gdb, .gpx and .txt formats. If you do not plan to use the GPS coordinates, there will be enough information on the route sheet to enable you to find the bonus locations.

You are advised to read and be familiar with the TeamStrange Uniform Rules,  and note that one of the rules we will be paying attention to is in Section I, Rule 5. Helmets are required. (Yup, even while riding in the parking lot) Also note that some of the more stringent rules apply only to ButtLite.

Digital cameras will be needed for this rally and, yes, we will keep your memory card after scoring. A passport will not be necessary to compete in this rally but might come in handy at the border with our neighbors to the north should you decide to go there (for massive points, of course).

Rally staff will be available at Motoprimo starting at 6:30 a.m. on Saturday for check-in, recording odometers and answering any additional questions. You will be free to leave at 8:00 a.m. All riders must return by 7:59:59 on Sunday morning.

Breakfast will be served starting at about 8:30. We hope to have scoring completed by 10:00 and award trophies by 10:30.

Trophies will be awarded to the top 5 Riders and also to the top Rookie. A Rookie is defined as never having ridden in a 24-hour or multi-day rally before, and it is possible for a Rookie to earn 2 trophies.

The winner of this year's rally will receive a PAID entry for Butt Lite 9 which will be held sometime Summer 2018. Spots in the 6 day Butt Lite have been increasingly hard to get in recent years so this is a great way to ensure you have a place at the start.

The cost for all this fun and adventure? $110 for single and $160 for two-up, with all proceeds donated to Pancreatic Cancer Research. Your entry fee covers two meals, snacks for the road, awesome rally swag and some great riding.

Sign up on Ride Master, and we'll see you in June!

Registrations must be received by June 1, 2017.

For those in need of a hotel, please contact us at crgmail@charter.net and we will be happy to provide insight into a decent place to stay.

Who's in?
