If anyone who was down at Greer for the event found a GOPRO Hero (the original one) please let me know. I lost mine Sunday somewhere out there. I really am more miffed about losing the memory card more than the camera, it had some great footage on it.

I was the guy who went swimming in the water hole.

The GS Challenge was my 4th day riding dirt. It was exceptionally challenging and a lot of fun. I really appreciated all the help I got during the event, with tips, pointers, etc, and at the end when it seemed like 20 people swarmed around me to help get Captain USA running again.

Thanks for posting these pics. When I was describing some of the obstacles to people, they didn't believe me.

I am kicking myself for cooking two of those bikes. I really do know how to operate a cable clutch I swear it. In the end that didn't actually hurt me all that bad, the hay bales took me out of the running. I looked over the final score sheet and the top 3 all scored something in the bales, everyone else got a zero. Its kinda strategy when a rider can fall down three times and still finish higher than a rider that only fell twice. But there are no excuses in the world of competition. A real rider can ride no matter what bike he is given, or how that bike is set up, and that's where I fell short. Not to worry I will be back in 2015 and I am going to beg borrow and steal as much time on a f800 as I can. Not that anyone in their right mind would let me ride there bike.

Fantastic report! I was there (#48) witnessing the great riders. Finished horribly but had the time of my life!
The #57 that flipped his bike was in my group. Rico was his name if I remember correctly. Super cool guy and he was definitely unstoppable!

We really missed you this year. I was running around all weekend bragging about how you dominated the challenge last year. I heard you broke your foot.... if its true I am sorry to hear about that, hope everything heals up quick. We should get together sometime and do some riding / camping.

Thanks for snapping the pic of me in the water crossing (#28) Hope you dont mind if nabbed it for my facebook and personal pics...
My GoPro died shortly into the second course on Saturday so I missed the one thing of the weekend I wanted video of... me in the water crossing.

Was great riding with you guys!

Go Team Orange!!!

I figured you guys weren't going to get through the last creek with the clutch like it was.
Little do I know! You all made that bike your bitch!

Jake,
Your a freaking rock star. My fat butt wouldn't have been able to move that dang f800 5 feet without you and Dan. I felt like crap when I burnt out the second clutch up on the hill, cause then I knew I had put you guys through that on account of my slamming it through the first creek. Next year you ride and I push.
