14th Annual Almosta Race - 1/1/2015
14th Annual Almosta Race - 1/1/2015


Dave Brooks(OLD Man Dave)

I have a lot to say about the Almosta Race.

RiderDown Foundation An annual charity race with a unique racing format that brings together riders & racers from a large area to enjoy the outdoors and raise money for the Thanks to our riders and supporters we were able to raise over $9,000 at the 2012 event!


Carol Brooks, , John Alexander, Jacob Alexander, Michael Thompson and I
have all been to this race and John Alexander twice now and this race was the best race that I have ever had. ,Jake Davis THE Trail Boss and Fred Overstreet are AWESOME people and a pleasure to be around and are considered Best friends to me and Carol Brooks because they just like family. Now Carol and I had some serious issues with trying to get to race because of Motor home issues, work on Friday for both of us and a 4 hour trip from KC and back and the WFO trailriders came to the rescue. Eric (WFO Trailrider) our mechanic,( Snyder Automotive) came to our rescue and fixed the Motor Home on New Years eve and got us to the race and when we had a problem, 4 WFO Trailriders showed up , Eric, Walker Michael and Rick Morgan our house on New year eve to make sure we made it to the race. We had a defective fuel pump installed and was not working, but we got the Motor Home running and decided to go for it because we knew that we would be in good company at race. Fuel pump stopped 1/2 way there and We got it going again and made to to the race anyway. Fuel pump stopped again at race site and we were considered staying and helping out Friday clean up and stuff, but we got it going and made it HOME. It was all worht it just to be there no mater what, We will be back next year and will bring more racers. We got there 3 AM Wednesday night. and raced New Years Day and got home at 11.30 PM and Carol and I had to work Friday so we were up at 5 Am to go to work. I would do it all over again even under these circumstances. Got some of the best front and rear view footage I ever had and had a blast with Dean Page, Steve Batson,,,Manual Morris, Jason Stevens, John Gott, Marvin Marvin M Morris, and many more left to add. ( Rhonda Roller) Carol Brooks was sick with a cold and was still out there getting pictures because Andy Andy M. Stevens was down with the flue and not able to be there to help get pictures. AWESOME COURSE AND FRIENDS.

Carol will probably get with Andy Andy M. Stevens to get pictures up for sale for a small $ amount of race. She was all over the course getting pictures of riders for the Charity benefit. She has to work today and is down with a cold, but will try to get them up shortly. I will have a short video right away and probably 2 10 minute video's of front and rear view of racers in video, not just the race course, but of fellow racers in action which there was a lot of action going on as I see in my download. I'm very excited about this years footage and will try to name riders in the video as I can see who some are and their #'s Thanks again Fred Overstreet and Jake for the BEST way to start out the new year by helping others with such a fun race.

[b]First run of totals from the Almosta Lady on what you guys did this year- Riders entries & T-shirts-$3,936.00, Auction items-$2,763.00, ATV Spectators- $140.00 for a Rider Down total of $6,839.00 PLUS cash at the gate that goes to The Manna Center of $700.00 I'll update food & clothing totals when I drop them off but the truck is full. Thanks again to our wonderful Almosta Family! Happy New Year!!

Another Almosta Race in the books! Epic year so far, temps were a tad cool and we ended with a light spattering of rain on & off through the day.116 riders, (58 teams) the Missouri team of Austin Butler & Nathan Rector (I believe both were first timers) took both 1st place trophies back to Missouri & cinched the Almosta Border War for Missouri as well. Final Border War tally was MO-8, OK-7, AR-5. Both hole shot trophies now live in Oklahoma as well. No injuries, a lot of smiles, many first timers. A huge ALMOSTA THANK YOU to all our racers, spectators. sponsors, individuals that donated and especially our volunteer workers. The MAGIC at Wildcat ranch is still alive! Stay tuned for totals soon!

Andy Stephens of Yellowwood Photography was unable to make it to this year's Almosta, however Carol Brooks did & she and Andy have collaborated on the 2015 pictures. Andy always does great work at fair prices AND he donates a portion of proceeds to Rider Down as well. A big Almosta Thank You to Andy & also to Carol for braving the conditions to get these shots........
