Project Description:
Yucca Chuckers Motorcycle Club has applied for a Special Recreation Permit. The purpose of the action is to conduct a competitive motorcycle race on the last Saturday in March 2011-2013. The map at the end of this document shows all the proposed courses and the proposed course for March 26, 2011. The proponent would use a new course each year to give the active washes a rest. The race would be conducted using motorcycles. The start/finish, staging, pit, and spectator viewing area would be located on public land that has been used as a pit area for similar events in the past. The course follows existing roads and trails that cross Bureau of Land Management (BLM) administrated land. The event would consist of multiple classes. The Pewee bike (50cc) racecourse is approximately one mile, the Mini bike 65-85 cc racecourse is approximately 15 miles, and the Big Bike (<125cc) race is approximately 28 miles.. 100 participants and 75 participants are anticipated for this event. Checkpoints would be located along the race course to assure entrants are limited to the authorized route only, and to radio in any accidents, injuries, or disabled vehicles. Participants caught short coursing or missing checkpoints would be disqualified. A sweep of the race course would be conducted after the leader crosses the finish line to check for disabled racers. An approved emergency response team consisting of a dedicated ambulance and EMTs would be onsite to provide emergency medical services. A BLM outdoor recreation planner would monitor for compliance of the event. The race promoter and all participants would be required to abide by BLM stipulations (SRP stipulations 1-16 and Special Stipulations for SRPs common to all Field Offices, Nevada). Post event, the permittee would be required to perform rehabilitation work on portions of the racecourse that utilize or cross major roads to pre-event conditions. All work, including the submittal of a post use report and payment of fees, must be performed within 15 days following the event. After 15 days, BLM recreation staff would conduct a post use inspection to evaluate any resource damage and to check if the rehabilitation of the roads and course clean up has been completed. This event is located within the Ely Resource Management Plan (RMP) Alamo Motorcycle Special Recreation Permit Area. This event is located in the White River South Watershed, outside of tortoise habitat and is not within any ACECs or wilderness areas. The only grazing allotment affected in the Six Mile Allotment
