    Great job guys! It was a blast racing against you. We were very confused at the end. Not sure what happened there? But You fought a good fight and our team has much respect.:D

    Quoted from RedBastards write up:
    Lap times
    <!-- #dg-post-title --><!-- message -->Lap times varied as night fell and thick fog rolled in. Fastest lap for the HeavyWeights team was 53 minutes. These guys were incredibly consistent. There were some very tough rocky (boulders) sections, tough on a lite weight dirt bike, I don't know how they did it on a 500lbs Adventure bike.

    Official result was a 2nd place in Sportsman Class and 17th overall out of 96 teams!

    Pit row Saturday morning

    The pit, it was busy, but everyone was ready to go out for each of the 25 laps completed.

    This is what awesome looks like when you line it up.

    It was a great race that's for sure, there ended up being a transponder issue that created the false win. What team were you on?

    I'm a Knuckle Dragger. Just wanted to let you know you guys did a great job on those big bikes. We weren't sure what class to enter so they told us to go with the sportsman class. In hindsight we probably should have entered open expert. One of my buddies said he had a blast going head to head with one of your guys out on the course. He'd get ahead on the corners and you'd blow by on the straights.
    Fun race. I wish we wouldn't have lost the better part of a lap to a flat.:cry

    Could you elaborate on this? :dunno Why were you down, and what did Alex do to make everything OK?? I know he makes a mean margarita but I doubt you are referencing that :deal

    Congratulation boys!! Sounds like you done damn good. 17th out of 96 teams (95 on proper dirt bikes)! That is damn good!! :freaky


    If I wasn't working every weekend, I would have loved to have seen this!

    We pushed the KTM suspension past its limits, I broke both adjusters (not sure what the correct term is) on the bottom sides of my forks, The body literally split and I rode my entire first lap with nearly no front suspension. John then broke a rear shock reservoir. Then a few other issues that were overcome with ingenuity.

    We truly pushed past the limits of what these bikes are capable of doing mechanically, just entirely too much force.

    Have you seen the photo of Radek jumping his 990R over 6 feet in the air and flat landing?!?!:deal

    As told from a KTM/WP Factory suspension tuner over the weekend:
    "You guy's are NUTS, weve only seen failures like that in the Dakar bikes!"

    All in all we were able to overcome the failures and continue with the race, with a 17th place overall and second in the sportsman class.

    I had a blast racing with you guys, What makes this race so much fun is the people you meet and the good will to your fellow racer.

    What a blast! It was a riot to pass bike after bike out there and know that you were leaving a roost a mile high!

    Im embarrassed to say we where mistaken on our finish, we where told by the promoter that we had 17th OA, but on the results posted today it looks like 36th OA:eek1. Oh well we still had a blast and rode the wheels off the big bikes.

    I think I speak on behalf of the other support volunteers when I point out we didn't come to be cheer leaders, we came to do what ever it took to keep you guys running around the clock. It was busy for those first shake down laps, but after that it was all normal endurance race failures. If I'm not racing next year count me in for more wrenching duty.
