My total time was 3:16 for 50miles.

So 2:40 for 50miles = 20mph-ish. Getting caught up in a few bottle necks and having sub-par cardio definitely slowed things down. Certainly not blazing fast and I can see lots of places I could have and should have been a lot faster but like I said, happy to just finish that race, it was a battle on a 500lb bike. I got beat up! Felt like I got hit by a truck when I finished

Jeremy and Radik were 2:36 and 2:48. They (and Darryl) are on a different level. I'm playing touch football and they are playing in the Super Bowl

There were some sections that were a bit daunting on the big bike but nothing super crazy. It felt pretty good passing dirtbikes in some of the technical sections (of course I had a ton of them pass me too).

The more the merrier! It'd be cool to have a couple dozen guys in the ADV class, would certainly attract some more prize donations

Out of curiosity, how did you guys come up with the 652cc min as the class guideline, rather than say twins or minimum weight?

I didn't think about it until after, I should have been using it whenever I passed someone. That'll happen this year.

The race last year was a blast and I can't wait for this year's event.

Nice video! Is this the ADV ride, DS ride, or the 100 miler?

I would like to see it, after two years of giving away prizes to the same guys we are bowing out this year. We need more than 5 guys to have a good race


Out of curiosity, how did you guys come up with the 652cc min as the class guideline, rather than say twins or minimum weight?

The idea was to race real ADV bikes not Xr650's the 652 cc rule allowed most all the smaller cc ADV bikes in but kept the Honda Baja killer out.
We didn't want any sandbaggers








I Hope everyone has a good time.

From my understanding you were the one that came up with the idea of the class. You get a big thumbs up from me. Finishing the D100 last year was by far the biggest sense of accomishment I've had on a bike ever. It was challenging, fun, miserable, exciting and exhausting all at once. I can't speak for everyone but I definitely had a good time

Thanks I was, I wanted to race my 950 and had hopes others would as well, I suggested the idea to Mx813 who got it passed with the club. My company sponsored the class then and the next year.
The first year things looked good with almost 15 racers, but almost everyone bailed when race day rolled around, Too bad, that was the best conditions Ive ever seen at the 100. last year we had 5 or so racers.
again after many more talked the talk, but didn't walk the walk
At that pace I don't see the need for a class and something that Im not really interested in.

From what I understand this year the ADV class will have an even bigger purse then what Cyclops was able to offer. Maybe that will entice a few guys??
Hopefully there is a good turnout of ADV class racers this year. Its doable on big bikes and should give the racers in this class a real feeling of accomplishment, at least the guys on 800 plus cc bikes.

I have been hassling all my big bike friends to come for this years event even if just for the Saturday DS ride. I think now that word has gotten out a bit more the numbers should be better. The only reason I knew about it was because of the video Touratech did on their F800 in 2012. It happened to pop up in my YouTube suggestions. Every adv bike event I go to I tell people about it and show them my video in hopes of sparking interest.

I'll be down with a friend also on an F800 and have a few others sitting on the fence. After the experience last year I'll be down every year that I can.

I offered up a Camel Tank as a prize this year.

You said something like past years winners are bowing out? You mentioned you were in Death Valley. No Jeremy or Radek either?

Im sure the stumpjumpers would love your contribution, I don't have anything to do with the club, so I cant comment much. I hear there is a pretty sweet cash offering from another sponsor.

Im most likely a no show, Last I talked to Jeremy, he was selling his bike, don't know if he ever did. I also don't know about Radek

I would love to ride the big bike over for the DS event, but unless people have a trailer, getting over the passes in early April is very iffy.

Ask Radek about the Donner Party next time you see him.

In the FWIW category, there will be a DS area set aside for those who may want to ride in and tent it, it will be at the entrance area to the right, kind of away from the crowds. This year the generator will be better positioned and in a box to muffle the already quiet Yami 2k. Saturday eve we will have chili dogs until they are gone. Stop in, share some lies and get prepped to ride the DS in the race. We'll have plenty of tools, lights for the dark hours (we don't mind being up late to help a fellow off road rider), and a blender for those who may wants an adult beverage (BYOL).

Last year was my first at odessa, and I ran my xr650l in the Ironman on sunday.

I just purchased a Ktm 690 enduro, and could be interested in doing the ADV class on sunday. I won't win but it could be a lot of fun.

How much more crazy is the Desert 100 than the Ironman ride?

The race is about 10-20% more crazy than the Ironman ride in my opinion. Fewer people, fewer children, but they usually throw in a little more challenging terrain.

Ironman VS D100...

I think you mean you did the Ironman Poker Run on Saturday last year ....right? The title of the event says it all. The Poker Run is a ride, the D100 is a race. No one will be using your body or your bike for traction on Saturday's ride like they would during the race. Completely different mind set needed to race. If you're looking for a percentage of intensity difference in the two events....I'd say it's more like.....70% more intense on race day. I'm not saying not to do it....it is a great test of skill and stamina, just go into it with your eyes wide open......and good luck to you if you decide to race! The good news is the ADV class is only one lap (50miles)
