Here's a video I recently added to my "favorites". Filmed in Germany. Amazing riders.

The real nasty stuff starts about 5 minutes in.

All that mud reminds me of last year's Hoot's!

I've posted this video before but it warrants reposting since the event is just around the corner. As painful a ride as it was it was some good times, and left me with memories I'll never forget. At the start of this clip is Sparrow in front of me on the blue Yamaha. Jcalis on the white Yamaha on the left. Redbeard is behind me, around the corner, on his KTM: he was not enjoying himself but stuck with us until the end. I think that was my first time riding with motogo1 and sledstorm. Motogo1 made a big splash that day early on and I think cracked a rib toward the end. Sledstorm took a spill that fractured his ankle and took him out of the race. I believe nobody was there too, though he left before us and made it farther to the end than we did. Ecrane99 showed up wwwwaaayyyy late but made it farther than all of us. Pretty sure he has footage of himself crossing the strong current of the flooded stream on the last sections. These rides are always adventures!
