Who benefits: Roger Neth and Rich Libengood and their families. Both of these gentleman received similar injuries (in separate accidents) which required the fusing of several vertebrae during lengthy and costly surgeries. Both Roger and Rich represent the best off road riders Idaho has to offer. Roger is currently leading the Southern Idaho Desert Racing Association’s series in the pro class. Rich has qualified (for the second time) to represent the Boise Ridge Riders at the International Six Day Enduro. This year the event takes place in Chile.
What: Owyhee Motorcycle Club is sponsoring a motocross race on Sunday Aug 26th at the club grounds in Boise. In addition to the regularly scheduled classes, there will be OFF ROAD “A”, and OFF ROAD “B” class. The requirements are you have to have an Idaho off road vehicle sticker, a USFS Spark Arrestor, and a fanny pack or back pack. There may be a “check point” where you will be required to stop and start at a line before continuing.
What else: There will be a benefit auction to raise funds for the medical costs incurred by these two gentlemen. The items to be auctioned will include big-ticket items from the local motorcycle industry.
Where: Owhee Motorcycle Club is located in the North End of Boise off of Cartwright and Bogus Basin Road.
Why: It could be you! Whether riding for pleasure or for competition motorcycling is an inherently dangerous sport. Yet the excitement and enjoyment received is such that we have dedicated our lives to the sport, forming a common bond. Rich Libengood and Roger Neth both are riders that have had a strong presence in the motorcycling community and now are in need. Please come show your support through donations, your purchases at the benefit auction, or entering in either “off-road” A or B class.
