    2023 T1 Participants and PLB links - Please read the following

    Note: per PBR Monday 11/21/22 (watch this first), only teams I've already OK'd may register before 1/1/23. I team per day. First come, first serve. Teams in this first tranche may name themselves. Second tranche (letter of intent required) may register after 1/1/23. Teams in the third tranche may register after 1/3/23 (letter of intent and recommendation required).

    Format: Your name, your location, your PLB page link (a placeholder is fine for now, see below), the motorcycle you intend to bring and a bit about you and your experience. Skip a line between each team member please. Final line is start date. First come first serve on starting dates. We'll respond with your team name.

    Deadline is May 31th 2023. No exceptions. For 2023 the limit is 1 team per day for the length of the Tour Season (7/15 until early September, TBD). First come, first served.

    You must include your PLB page links, one per team member (no TBD or TBAs please, but you may use a temporary placeholder in the form of a made up link in the proper format if you are waiting to activate your subscription. This must be made final by the registration deadline and you will need to edit your posting here to reflect the permanent link). Please note: you get to create your own link as long as it's not already taken, so just choose a placeholder that you think will be unique and it'll save you work later. You will need to figure out how to password protect this page for the days that you are not allowed to publicly upload track points.

    Please note that all of your team members must also be a member of the Tour of Idaho Facebook group before your team will be assigned a name and be put on the calendar. It's easier for me if you do all of this before posting your PLB links and dates below. Thanks.​

            Benjamin Sypher, Laveen Arizona (just south of Phoenix)
            2005 wr450f
            Benjamin - This is my third attempt at the tour. The 2016 attempt was an unforgettable adventure as a soloist. 2022 was cut short due to technical difficulties and bike issues. 2023 is the year!

            Michael Thompson, Ogden Utah
            2021 Sherco 300
            Michael - I grew up on a farm wrenching on and riding dirt bikes and still ride single track and desert races in Utah and Idaho today. (40 years) Yes, I have seen the dust of Micheal Knight’s bike as he lapped me at a Utah race and that is as close as our moto skills have ever been.

                        Duane - something to keep in mind, if you leave Sat 8/12 your D2 short day in/around Pocatello is going to be on a Sunday and most moto shops will be closed, so if you were to need anything you may be out of luck....thought that was worth pointing out.

                        Duane, I second the suggestion from Oregon Comrade. You will know more details in the Spring with Martin releases the towns you will stay in. Some powersports stores are following trends of being closed on Mondays as well. Have fun in the planning stages, it really is the most amazing adventure on 2 wheels
