“Motocross races held in meadow at Snowmass,” recapped The Aspen Times on May 31, 1973.

“There were seven classes in the two days of motocross competition last weekend that took place in mud and light snow showers Saturday and clearer weather Sunday…. More than $500 in prize money was won at the meet, sponsored by the Aspen Motorcycle Club. On Saturday there were amateur and mini bike races and on Sunday the professionals on the bigger bikes raced. Two Aspen brothers did the best of the local racers. They were Jeff Adams, second in the 250 cc B Class; and Keith Adams, second in the 125 cc B Class. In all there were 133 entrants in the seven classes on the two days.”
