If you're into off road riding its a NW must do IMO. Crazy scene. Great riding. Get to see some riding buddies that you only see once a year. Little money. Big fun.

I was very close to pulling the trigger on a 950 SE this week so I could do just this. Then I went riding this weekend and my back communicated to me that racing again is a bad idea.
So I think last year was my last race out there, but will probably ride the 1200 on the dual sport course again. My favorite part was Todd's MX track.

Sorry to hear that
Hope everything works out well. Look us Heavyweights up at the d100, we might be setup somewhere in vendors row, really not sure yet.

The main reason I didn't do the dual sport run last year is I didn't have anybody to ride with, my buddies were all on the Iron Man. We should get an ADV group together for the DS!

I can ride with you, Pete. We probably should have met in person years ago, anyway.

Hey Fred, that sounds great, would you be riding the Ape or did you plate the 300?

Hey Pete/ Fred -
I'm in the same boat - wanted to do the DS ride last year but alas no one to ride with. if you all wouldn't mind I would love to join a reasonably paced DS run. I'm on a G650 Sertao - and by that time should have shed the Heidenau k60's and be on some TKC80's a bit more knob is always better right?

I took my XR650L on the Ironman last year and this year I should be riding a KTM 690 Enduro.

I'd be up for either the dual sport or the ironman again. The iron man route is no joke for a >650cc bike, but its also a TON of fun.

Here is some edited video of the poker run route:

I rode the race last year on my ktm 250exc, it was fun and I think the d100 is something everyone should try at least once. That said, I won't be doing it again, the whole time I was riding I kept thinking how much more fun it would be if there weren't a zillion people on the trail, I ended up leaving right after the race and heading over to Mattawa and riding alone.
Here's a picture of the sea of motor homes and campers, it seemed like a significantly larger population than the nearby town.

I ride to get away from crowds not to join them, but like I said it's definately worth doing at least once, and it may be your thing
Have fun!

Thanks for helping put this on Mike. I ve only raced the last 3 years and last year was the best course yet. That main bottle neck thinned the herd in a hurry. Lol.

I would like you to think about enforcing the bibs being visible. I had a rider whom I was pacing on my second lap cut the course around mile marker 9. Just went left up and over the hill... cut out probably two miles. when I told the guy at the check what I saw he asked me for his bib number. I could only tell him he's was wearing a blue backpack over his bib. Couldn't see his bib number completely. The guy ended up few guys in front of me. Weird situation to ride the race knowing the guy your chasing cheated... had to think real hard to keep my head on straight...

I like the rule about the race winner and second Lappers. Didn't seem like people knew about it and were upset. I like it.

My goal this year is under 4hours... not including waiting to go thru the finish line...lol

Thanks Luke.
