Laugh Chear on the Heaveyweights

Whelp!! I can verify that 2 more 800 GSs will be making the race (provided we don't break them on our March AZ and UTBDR trip). We get home the 30th, spoon on new tires, and onto Odessa

Glad to see it Chet I may be a no show this year, unless I come home a few days earlier from Death Valley 1st time I will be missing the 100 in more than 10 years.

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.
We do our best to create a course that is not conducive to cheating as you witnessed but some people just have to cheat to feel better.

I looked at a map where you think you were...on the other side of the road crossing still?

Just wanna make sure you guys keep the stories straight. Don't believe anything Cyclops or Hayshaker says about me... I deny it or it was the Pendleton talking

But the event itself isn't too bad....just surround yourself with good friends in the club that work hard and take little bits off at a time.

Mike,
Will you be able to avoid the creek bottleneck again this year? Bypassing that was a huge improvement to the course, especially for us whale riders. I know a few disagreed, but I thought that the rocky uphill used as an alternative was fun in its own right.

Bottleneck or not, I'm looking forward to this year's event.

Someone remind me to pick up a couple of extra bottles of Pendleton before the race!

Ha....I see your point but I don't normally buy Pendleton. Then again my bottle of choice is an unlabeled bottle not found on any store shelf and currently out of production so may NEED to switch. The Dez-100 is an off-road event for me rather than a ADV ride so need a reminder to stock up the trailer ahead of time. I tend to stay reasonable and on my game at Odessa for good reason. The party can wait till after. If you have a visit from me out on course for very long, you've had a bad day.

RIDE SAFE

Do you provide first aid at the D100?
If so, thanks for your support,...and I'll bring the Pendleton

I'm normally cheaper than Pendleton, I likes my Evan Williams green label. A mug full of that on ice with a shot of Squirt, and I'm set. that is IF I can stick to just one mug full....

My Mom's birthday is this same weekend, but since she never let me ride as a kid, I'm going to this year's D100 just to spite her
