That and the worker who held my bike up when I got back on it near the mile 35 checkpoint are really appreciated.

Ha.....glad the broken case cover did not cause any issues. Fortunately that was me standing there and NOT the photographer. He had left that hill not long before and would have made you internet famous. I would say that you had the coolest sounding machine out there. Congrats on the finish.

I escorted the last rider in to the finish line. He was tired but at 77 years old he earned that t-shirt! Way to go George.

Thank You Stumpjumpers for such an event. This was my first race, not sure where I placed but running the super senior class it does not much matter, I accomplished my goal I finished and did not get hurt and got my T-Shirt. YEHAW

She did it and had a big grin when she came in. You can't see the grin but trust me it was there. She didn't know how I knew she crashed during the race. When she sees this picture she'll understand how I knew.



For those of you wondering about Lukeís bike you can read about it here: http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=823952

Iím a Luke fan so I got some photos of him before the race and at the finish.

Here he is with a few of his buddies.


Luke running in the Over the Hill class on the Frankenbike, Allan "Loud Al" (the team photographer), Don running the Masters class, Rick "LCGarage" running as a Super Senior, and Becky "Rainbow007" riding her first race in the Super Senior class. Everyone finished - - - WHAHOOOOOOOO

Donís hot pink riding gear makes him easy to spot.
That mild mannered looking guy there without the helmet in the gray and blue is the "savage" Luke.

 
Luke coming in.

 
For some odd reason I couldnít get him to pay attention to me.

 
Thanks to all those sponsor that help make this happen.


This is event is such a great time and I always enjoy the weekend. I was in over my head in some places on the Enduro Dual Sport ride but had a good time anyway. Thanks to the two young guys that stopped to help me get over a little bump (it wasnít big enough to call a hill ) when I missed my gear and stalled in the middle of it. Also to the two stumpjumpers that assisted when I was cut off on a hill climb and bit it - I was moving slow and I'm sure I was in the way.
 
Congratulations to everyone that finished and an extra congratulations to those who had to push their bikes over the finish line for one reason or the other even though they had to be dog tired. Everyone of you are incredible.
 
A great big thank you to all the Stumpjumpers who work so hard every year to make the D100 what it is. I donít have the word to express how much I appreciate all you do.

Thanks for the help! The photographer was there on my first lap and I was graceless enough for those pictures. No need for more :)

I don't know George, but he's awesome.

I don't want to sound like a pussy, but I could only make one lap. After 50 miles of that shit I had to stop at the pits. I think I inhaled a cubic yard of dirt in my lungs and what didnt make in my mouth was stuck to my lips and face. Mass respect to all the riders who make it the full 100. I had a blast over the weekend and will be back next year. On the way home I told myself never again will I put myself through that... haha yeah right by next spring I will have forgoten how much a butt kicken it was and sign up again. Thanks Stumpjumpers for everything you guys do.

Holy crap!

How was that not marked? He was lucky as hell he didn't get really hurt there. Pretty smooth riding.....even after going over the North Rim of the Grand Canyon!

Chaos!

He's a lucky guy, thats quite a hole. I like riding along the wire (barbed?) fence with all the dust. Real lucky nobody got hurt worse. I have thought about doing this race but decided its not my thing with a billion riders you odds are pretty got at crashing.
I would like to go over to check that area out when there are not so many riders around. Looks like fun riding.

It can only be ridden that one weekend. The land owner opens it up once a year.

If you're really slow, you get the course pretty much all to yourself on the second lap.

Seriously, it's a real treat. It was rare that I could see more than two riders at a time. Usually it was one or none.
