FAMOUS OFF-ROAD RACES
In the Early Days... every race was a point-to-point "paper chase" and a real hare and hound. A good rider from the promoting club was selected as the "hare" and given a half-hour or more head start over everyone else. The "hare" would throw paper bags to mark his route as he rode, and the first "hound" to catch him was the winner. These races, and the men and women who made them possible, are old timers now, but still have something to teach us about where our sport came from, where it's going and who we are because we chose to be a part of it.
