And thanks for the video link, Bomber.

I think that's the waterhole I fell sideways in. Soaked the entire right side of my body...felt great on the road sections.

Did you see the speed at which AA man flew by you?

The protocol is you need to immediately move to the side when someone is behind you. They generally give you a shout. Shout or not, move over quickly. It's actually not bad. They don't need much room to pass.

Yup, if you hear someone going woooo wooooo they are not cheering you on. I got passed by just about everyone with no problems If you hear a bike or the shout just pull over to the side and give them room. You dont have to come to a complete stop if you can ride to the side of the trail. In some tight spots where there really is no room to pull over I just made sure I held my line and either waved them on or shouted go go go as loud as I could and did a head nod. They found away around

Here is what it looks like in the same section from the guy who is trying to pass. The dude with the orange pants is fuckin flying! It looks the same anyway. Rob, do you have a half blue fender?

The guy who did all the videos was on minute 28 so the Pachaug boys are in many of them.

9:12, what a touching scene, broke my heart LoL.

They were dropping like flies at the end. Had to hold up after that creek because someone was on the ground.
