No video of him making it to the top? I assume everyone made it to the top?

I have 16GB of footage to go through. It will take me a while

I do have a video proof that we all made it to the top.

It was a sloppy, muddy, rocky and cold ride. Somehow I enjoyed every minute of it and I even broke some sweat!

Last year I made it up the "Sumbitch" hill a couple of times without a problem. This time it got me

Here's my POV:

that was pretty awesome... somehow i don't think i could make it up that hill while also having to kick start my bike after each time laying it over.

Watching tomski's video reminds me of a question I think to myself alot when I see helmet cam footage. Is that how far ahead you are looking when you ride? I can't tell where you are headed, and if thats how far you are looking ahead (staring at your front fender) then you really can't either and it explains those mishaps.

Not trying to dig, just asking a question. maybe I can help?

Nah...
The cam was tilted down. If I was riding like that, I would get lost all the time

I have a 15 min video of the ride that I'm currently uploading. Will post when done.

Update:

Here it is (I cut it down from two hours to 15+ minutes, but for some it still may be way too much to watch).



I'll have one more short clip with DirtyDog goofing off in the sand... or rather clay pit.
