Hey Goofy! You should have driven over and watched, we're in Wiesbaden about 25 minutes west of Frankfurt and it only took us about 4 1/2 hours to get to the Sachsenring!!!

Here are the Ladies of the Women's Trophy Team, #405 is Rachel Gutish, 505 Mandi Mastin, and 695 Sarah Whitmore they're tough cookies with great riding skills!!!

The Boise Ridge Riders included #417 Devan Bolin, 517 Reid Brown, and 617 Derek Steahly.

The US Flag in the background is courtesy of some of the parents, fans, and mechanics that ran support at the Special Tests.

Our plan for watching the action was bullet proof; we’d camp close by, eat well, drink Bier, get a full night’s sleep and then ride our mountain bikes to the Special Tests as well as through some of the Transitions each day. That worked great the first day, it went downhill from there when we took the “If you can’t beat them, join them!” attitude about the neighbors with the Self-Chilling Bier Kegs, bonfire, and Five Million Watt Stereo system that blasted ACDC into the early morning. 35+ Kilometers between Specials and snapping off my derailleur on day two were contributing factors. The two RV’s belonging to some retired folks from Sweden didn’t see it that way, they rolled out on day two and never came back….

Our other neighbors came up with the Brilliant Idea of making fake Course Marshall Vests and riding their motorcycles through the whole thing, they got waved through every Checkpoint and had the Polizei stop traffic for them at road crossings!!!

It's the Most F5orite Time of the Year!!!
