    The battle still rages and we await split times from Santa Rita RM1011-
    Something that has come up a lot today is that Steve Hengeveld is the world's best night racers (as documented in Dana Browns film From Dust to Glory). And while that may have held true at the time, it is no guarantee this morning. Thus I will put this forward: The world's best night racer is the one who wins this race and with it the 1x championship.

    Shit. I hope Quinn is okay. Is this a credible source?

    From Enduro360.com
    "Confirmed Kendall Norman Sighting &#8211; Kendall was in San Ignacio when the lead bikes came through."

      Troy Carpentr Yhe IRC tracker shows the 5x KTM (Quinns ride) currently still moving - in the race - so did the KTM chase get to Quinn or he rode it in to hand off... who is on bike now? if so?

    B G F: Based on the tracker, it looked like the get-off happened back around RM950 just before QC was to hand off the bike to KC. The bike is moving now and is around CP7 (per the live tracker).

    Kenna Covington: Troy - He may have crashed very near the handoff ... Kurt (Caselli) should be on the bike now.

    This is Scotty logging off for a few- Will go to the finish area in a few minutes and will report from there.

    Will try to do sweeps as much as possible throughout the next few hours.

    :evilCrazy night of racing... wish I was down there!
    Praying for a safe extraction for Quinn... and glad to hear that Steve is ok. I was chatting with his son Cole for a while on FB and he was really scared. Very happy / relieved that it was a mechanical and not a crash.

    Timmy still needs to bring that bike home... Anything can happen. This is not over just yet with KC back on the bike for KTM...

    While focusing on the top finishers it's easy to forget that much of the field is only halfway through their race. Most of the bikes are in the thick of the hell right now, having been caught by the TTs. At least it's not foggy.

    It's no fun being passed by this train during the night. The relentless TTs and buggies with their blinding lights and incessant sirens.

    Timmy Weigand: "Yeah... I'm no superstar... we just three guy's that get along on the team... and a good work ethic..."

    Humble words from a true champion... maybe not the biggest (stature) guy to ever race a desert bike... but 7 feet tall in spirit!
