2023 Rally : Flight of the Valkyries
The 2023 Valkyrie Moto Rally was held in Fort Smith, AR on October 6 and 7. Riders had the option of starting remotely or starting at the host hotel in Fort Smith. The majority of riders chose to start in Fort Smith although it should be noted that the 1st place finisher did start remotely (she said she just wanted to flower sniff.....right).
This page has some information about the rally. You will find the rallybook, rally instructions, and some cool videos made from photos and videos taking before, during, and after the event.
