— Moab Rally on the Rocks promoter Lanse Chournos and WORCS promoter Sean Reddish got together three years ago to form a fall UTV jamboree at the WORCS headquarters, Sand Hollow State Park. Sand Hollow has a unique mix of red sand dunes, sandstone rock formations and desert, and locals are laying new trails every year. Now in its third year, the SxS Adventure Rally has three guided ride days with 11 rides—three easy, three moderate and five difficult. Participants can choose from the easiest ride (Honeymoon Loop) to the most majestic and difficult ride (the Ledges). Four of the five difficult trails are in the sandstone formations along the west edge of the park, and there is also a beautiful lake to cool off in during hotter months.

Demo rides go on all day during the three-day rally, so participants got to test drive the Polaris RZR XP and XP 4 Turbo Dynamix Editions, Can-Am Maverick X3s, X3 Maxes and Trails, Yamaha Wolverine X4s, Textron Wildcats and Hisun Strikes.
The WORCS staging and start line are used as the staging area for the Adventure Rally, and signs guide participants to the staging line. Rides then go through a tunnel to trailheads and family fun.
Ride guides are very experienced and spot for rally-goers on the more technical parts. At least two guides per ride make sure everyone returns to rally headquarters.


Three days of guided rides bombard the senses with beauty, but there is much more to the SxS Adventure Rally. Can-Am, Yamaha, Polaris, Textron and Hisun put on demo rides so enthusiasts could experience the latest and greatest UTVs. CST was the title sponsor, and other sponsors and vendors included Assault, D&P Performance, Dynojet, HCR Racing, Walker Evans Racing, GBC, STI, ITP, Maxxis, SSV Works, Rugged Radios, Zion ATV Adventures, DirTees, Whiplights, Moto Armor, Moto Zoo and Camp Chef. All of these vendors donated their products and even cold hard cash to the Friday-night raffle. A RZR XP 4 1000 was auctioned off for charity over the Veterans Day weekend. Camp Chef cooked breakfast on Thursday and Friday before giving away the stoves and grills Friday. Saturday’s breakfast was continental.

The SxS Adventure Rally is a great way to experience Utah’s Sand Hollow State Park, which almost borders Zion National Park. Sliplock and John’s Trail made up one of the more technical guided rides in the red-rock formations overlooking Washington Valley.
Breakfast is provided every morning of the rally, with Camp Chef doing the cooking and then raffling off the stoves and griddles Friday night. Pre-registration is $110, including an event T-shirt, and people could register at the rally for $40 per person per day.
Raffle revenue goes to local charities, and the rally also had special recognition and festivities for all veterans. The Friday Night Pizza Ride crew won their fare share of prizes this year and are already making plans for next year.
Vendors set up on Wednesday and work on participants’ UTVs as needed. They also had rally specials and donated swag for the big Friday-night raffle. Friday’s dinner was $5 and included a free raffle ticket.

Set aside November 8–10, 2018, for the fourth annual SxS Adventure Rally!
