    I see from the confirmed entry list, that Dennis and Kylee Sweeten are riding again this year. The list was a month plus old.... Are any other US or Canadian riders, going to ride or spectate this year?

    Iron man Dennis! And Kylee too. Wow.

    The time and money and hammering of bikes is quite the commitment. All to ride SO many miles so many days, often in cold and wet.

    I'm envious... I think.

    Adrian Lewis is also entered, but country listed as England.

    Dennis Sweeten is also entered in the Pre-65 Scottish Two Day, Friday & Saturday before the SSDT.

    I guess Adrian lives as British Citzen in the USA?
    Dennis is an Ironman!

    Two father-daughter teams at the SSDT..... Roger and Kate Callaghan from Ireland; Dennis and Kylee Sweeten from USA. Both young women have ridden the TDN for their respective national teams. This is Kate's first Scottish and Kylee's second. Both dads are SSDT vets.

    I was reading about this event on enduro 21.That would be something to go a nd watch.I noticed from the list in the post above no top rider names or current top riders.why?could those guys enter and clean house?Or does the endurance aspect throw them off?

    It is something to ride. Not much watching, unless you are working the event. Usually the weather is not so good. You don't consider Doug Lampkin a top rider?
