Thought that was you

Got my scores figured out. I houred out in the tar pit section. Estimated I missed it by about 20 minutes Im sure I took at least a total of 30 minutes of break time so if I can get in shape I have a chance.

Section 2 -8.26
Section 4 houred out
Section 6 -13
Section 8 -13
Section 10 -11
Section 12 -11

maybe section should be check point?

Im happy with it. I also feel that if I didnt get wiped by section 2 I woulda been quicker in the rest. Im happy with my first enduro, a little sore but happy

Hey Kenny, can I relate a story of my misfortune at the enduro without stealing your thunder? It might prove helpful to someone else interested in competing in Enduro....

You did good, you finished and that's excellent. This time next year, you'll be placing I'm sure of it!

That was Doug, DRC42 here on ADVsausage

I just started riding off road aggressively a few years ago, riding Turkey runs and stuff like that. Last year, I decided to try a Harescramble and with luck an Enduro. I was able to do the Tuxedo ridge HS last year and I had a great time but because of some family stuff, I was unable to do any other races. This year, I swore that I would do as much as possible and so far it's been good.

So yesterday was my first Enduro ever and I was not prepared as you can imagine. The biggest boner move of the day was not taping my time card onto my fender well enough. The damn thing flew off during one of the sections of trail I was happy to learn at the checkpoint that they could manually score me at the end....Cool....but you'll get a 10% penalty...oh shit Oh well, I'll just keep riding and have fun. Much to my surprise I managed third in Senior C, which was pretty cool until GBG informed me that I would have been first in Senior C minus without the 10% penalty

I was informed today that I would have been third overall in the entire C class and awarded 16 promotion points towards my B card


Long story short, all the decent riding in the world doesn't mean shit if you don't use enough tape! Thus endeth the lesson!
