Presented by the New York State Powersport Dealers Association, the primary goal of the
event is to form critical ties with the OHV enthusiast community in an effort to open new trails

Even though the Trail Riders Expo 2008 near Albany, NY promises to be a lot of fun, there's a more crucial need for it to be a success. Presented by the New York State Powersport Dealers Association, it gives the organizers a chance to meet up with (and get critical contact info) from some of the many thousands of ATV, off-highway motorcyclists, and 4WD enthusiasts in the Empire State. For anyone who has ever looked for a place to trail ride in New York, they'll understand why this is important.

 "The New York State Powersport Dealers Association is dedicated to opening new OHV trails throughout the state and we need to get more folks involved in the process," explains Bob Ski who is ???? of the organization. "Sure we want everyone to have a good time at what we hope will be an annual event, but from my perspective the contacts we can make with enthusiasts who may not yet be involved in a club or association will be very valuable to us."

 Ski also reports that there have been some recent exciting new trail success stories in a state that has been notorious for being tough on public OHV opportunities. "The dealers in our organization are part of a select group that have banded together to create legal off-road riding opportunities," explains Bob. "Their financial contribution and efforts have enabled a combined 800 miles of insured trails to be developed in the last 18 months in New York. We're trying to eliminate the old 'sell it and forget it attitude' that so many dealers in our area had for years. These guys are set to get something done."

 The three days will be packed with tons of events and activities for the whole family, including;

  • Enduro/Quad Challenge Course
  • ATV Drag Race
  • FMX/Street Freestyle Exhibition
  • 4x4 Truck Obstacle Course
  • ATV/4x4 Truck Mud Bog Race
