    Good job. How did you like the rock wall/box canyon that was a huge bottleneck? I think that is one area that would suck on a big bike. :deal
    Respect for doing the whole course on a big bike, I am really hurting today, and I only had to do one lap. :deal

    Thanks! The climb actually wasn't bad at all, seeing all the bikes stacked up and waiting was a little frustrating, apologies to anyone i shoved past. My favorite by far was the smooth section by the irrigation sprinklers. Made some pretty good time through there.....
    It was great to ride with all you guys, hope to do it again next year!

    I got a bad start on the first wave and got to witness the superenduro roost in full force! Not a pain that I am going to repeat ever again, congrats on a great ride. Also the 990 Adventure rider had the most impressive line through the bottleneck, I am not sure I could have followed him on my 200.

    You big bike dudes are hardcore, congrats on another running of the Dez to all the entrants.

    Could not make it out to the Dez this year to witness it first hand, hopefully next year. -Ed

    Agreed! :clap

    Even if I hadn't stopped for 15+ minutes you still would have smoked me.

    This ^^^^ is why I won't come to race my big-ass Adventure.
    At my age, I'll gladly be a wussy without bruises and aches caused by a....race :huh

    I woulda liked to see a big Orange Pig storm that bottleneck, tho :D

    I barely remember Sunday night only to be rudely awoken by a garbage truck picking up the first load. Told him don't come back until Tuesday as I viewed the other 4 overflowing dumpsters that needed packing.

    Then had to load 400' of crowd control barrier immediately afterwards. If that doesn't cure a hangover, not sure what will.

    Heading back there tomorrow to pull the last 5 miles of ribbon, shut some gates, repair 3 gates....least it'll be quiet.

    Pretty sure the guy that left bike parts laying around didn't think it fun when he hit one. Spoke with the landowner there and he witnessed it all.

    Easy fix for the small "nimble" bikes,, They can run but they gotta run full luggage and carry 3 cases of beer each...
