Tried to read most of these posts but haven't had time to watch videos and radio yet. Did Ned take a time penalty for a new engine or something b/w stages?

Wrenching on my truck today and just happened to see this while grabbing a bite to eat.

If you zoom in to some of those areas on Google Earth, there are some amazing dune areas there...damn, but I'd love to be down there!


WTH, just easier to quote BlueBull here:

The ASO have been v. crafty in their route. The first section comprises some fastiish track with lots of fesh fesh, I cand see the white powder on Google earth in the areas where it is bad, they're like crater marks.

WP1 - 29km
WP2 - 67km
WP3 - 117km
WP4 - 138km'
WP5 - 196km (I think)
WP6 - 231km
WP7 - 281km (also the highest point)
WP8 - 333km
WP9 - 347km this is also CP3 and an official viewing point
WP10 -382km (approx)
ASS - 419km

Phew that quite a bit.

To WP1 The first section comprises some fastiish track with lots of fesh fesh, I cand see the white powder on Google earth in the areas where it is bad, they're like crater marks.



Wp1 -Wp2 Cuts accross a big open flood plain, it will be very rocky and jarring, then the route goes through some hills following a track before more rocky plains.




Wp2-Wp3 more of the above, but the end gets more sandy and flat. most of this is off piste. Navigational challenges.



Km 85



WP3-Wp4 is fairly sandy and shortly after Wp4 the neutralisation section is reached, again about 60% off piste.



WP5-Wp6 is a long climb to just under 1,000m altitude from 250m above sea level, its is following a rocky road interspersed with a bit of off piste

WP6-Wp7 After a short drop the route follows another road (mostly up to the highest point just under 1,600m high)



WP7-Wp8 is an amzing bit of riding following a road initially and then a long dune surf down to the WP. The wind is blowing the opposite direction so the faces of the dunes climbing up will be steep and people will get stuck if they choose bad lines. Mostly off piste riding.

It does not look downhill but it is




WP8-WP9 Includes some super steep down hill riding in sand and dunes. Should be awesome to see from the checkpoint. note this is also CP3

Wp9- WP10, the route cuts over some hills and turns south again, lots of ridges to cross.

Wp10 - ASS this is a fast section of OFF piste with navigation cutting over a series of steep, sandy ridges. People will struggle here if the incorrect lines are taken. The last bit is some easy dunes.




Hopes this helps.

Now back to the show

Thanks for the great post and all the video! Dune School!

Go Ned Go !!!

Awesome post Hilslamer!

Thanks

Reading this thread is the most amazing way to spend time! I am thankful for every single one who has provided insight and support and especially the recent lessons on riding the dunes from Tim. You people are inspiring, and the raidio clips each night from Ned are key to understanding this whole thing from my nooB perspective. THANK YOU

GO NED GO !!!!!!!

Has he done any top end swaps or rebuilds yet ?

As Ned says the engine he is using now is running really well and there must be a slight reluctance in changing it ?

I know he will change it , it just makes sense I guess but there is always the chance that exchange engine isn't quiet as good .

Taste of Dakar

All this Neduro madness inspired me to do this "taste of dakar" ride in Death Valley at the end of Feb being put on by another mfg and a former dakar rider. Neither sponsored Neduro (I think), so I won't mention them by name. I'm studying Tim's sand clinic VERY closely. I'll be sure to say "well as I learned from Tim and Neduro, when you're in the sand it's best to..."

I've been to DV three times now but I'm hoping to see it from a different perspective this time.
