We are Joe Vadeboncoeur and Scott Daubert, everyday off-road motorcycle racers. The photo above is from the Perry Mountain 24hr race in 2012, we do not always look that scruffy, but 24hrs is a long time. We live in southern Wisconsin and compete in the WIXC, District 16 AMA Harescrambles series, District 16 Enduro series, National Harescrambles series, National Enduro series, OMA series, and the GNCC series. In other words, we like to race. Scott races the AA group locally and the A group on the national level, Joe races the A group locally and the B group nationally. On just about any weekend, you will find us at an offroad event – somewhere.
In 2012, we entered the Perry Mountain 24hr race. It was our 2nd time to give the race a go. 2nd time proved the charm. The Vesrah Offroad Team won the Duo Class and placed 7th overall (The first duo team ever to break the top ten). We are pretty proud of that effort as it was by far the biggest focus we have ever had in our racing. It feels really good to be the champions of that event.
In 2008, we did the entire Grand National Cross Country Racing Series . We managed to complete that with the help of our sponsors, you can go back over the blog archives to read a log of that experience. It was a hoot. Guys in their 40′s shouldn’t have that much fun. We saw a part of the country we had never seen, we raced in far off places, we were passed by David Knight and Josh Strang (more times than we should have been) and we had a grand time. We were National racers – sort of.
We compete locally and nationally. We also do all we can to tell you about offroad motorcycling in the upper midwest. You can follow along with us, and laugh at us or with us every week on our blog pages. We will do all of that with huge smiles on our faces, because… the worst day on a motorcycle is still pretty damn good.
