    Exciting news, Ned!

    Really looking forward to watching your progress, and I'm in for some $$ support as well.

    Cheers!

    And this from someone who once said something like "dirt is for growing potatoes, asphalt is for racing", if I recall correctly.

    With friends like these, you're all set for a big impression. :deal

    Go Ned go.

    That video was great it has to be one of the best bike videos I've ever seen.


    Remember to put plenty of photos up of the bike prep.

    Thanks!

    I'm counting on some of you being selfish- for anyone that didn't see, supporter packages are already available.

    $150 and up supporters get 30-50% off discount codes for a single order from each of my sponsors- Klim, MX1West, Sidi, BRP, and Butler Maps (that's 5 codes for each supporter). That adds up fast- a pair of boots or some gear and you're ahead of the game even with the contribution.


    Thanks Jinx, and I'm tempted to talk about the poor miners just so I can meet the guy throwing Llama shit. :D


    A 450 XCW. I am about to put up a blog post on how I made the decision, which took some soul searching as you can imagine.


    Absolutely! I'm going to document building the bike here, because it's such an integral part of the race.

    But (this is for Geode :D)I'm going to reserve my personal thoughts and some of the juicier details for people who are part of the team (on the neduro.com blog) that supporters get access to.

    Excellent - just found this and had no idea you were going for it. :freaky

    Other than repaying you for the 34 mile tow in Idaho, how can we support brother?
