Thanks everybody for following along.

I ended up riding the last day. The mag 7 pit was setup somewhere off the course in Todos. I was never able to do the rider switch. The bottom roller on the chain reduced itself in size causing the chain to slip on the counter sprocket. I just nursed it along not figuring out what was wrong till I got into some mountains. I was afraid it would not climb the hills. I stopped at a beautiful little ranch to work on the bike. Two guys from the ranch helped me get her going again. So feeling like an Idiot for not stopping sooner, I flogged her into the finish. Turns out it was a good thing that dad did not take the bike the last few miles, as they were deep sand all the way in.

I will type up some more when I can. Gotta catch up on some sleep first. I think I might have to start working out or something this thing kicked my ass a little bit.

Get some well-deserved rest amigo! Just got off the phone with Rick and it sounds like the trip of a lifetime.
