    I dunno, I only made it about 60 seconds in.

    I’m not all that great, but I’d like to think I know when something’s bordering on difficult. That wasn’t it.

    Video evidence destroys any hope of building TFH legend. Top tip.

    I struggled to 2:40. He’s dogpaddling down a sidehill grade that he should be on the pegs at in at least 3rd gear on. :twitch

    Me and my ample skills enjoy some privacy.
    Why the fawk do people feel the need to video tape themselves all the time? Especially this guy, wheezing and whining his way down the trail in first gear? Ain't nobody got time to watch that... I think it is great that he is out there, pushing HIS envelope, but I'd want zero audio/visual record of it if I were him.

    That stabilizer is getting WORKED! I need to get me one of those... :fpalm

    At 6:40 he is stranded in a spot that Rick’s girlfriend could easily ride through.

    I thank the Lord that he’s got every available trinket bolted on his bike. From damper to Steg things. And of course his Klim gear.

    "Hey Luke,

    Thanks for emailing the Paul Bunyan Forest Riders. I'm sorry to say your friends are closer to being right than you are. That section is not hard in my opinion. It's about the same as the rest of the singletrack. Time to eat some humble pie on ADV. Feel free to use my name. I'm a mid to upper B level rider in the 50+ age group."

    I made it 21 seconds.
    Ger actually does ride faster than that. And She’s only ridden three times.
