Re: Delaware Enduro April 29th

Thanks for the insight, firebolter. Turned out that with the mileage resets, and battling the mud, I never was able to follow along with the map and just wandered around following the general mob. lol Here I am in Test 3 - which started out with serious demoralizing mud. And around 5:40 mark had sma...

Re: Joker's Western MD Camp and Ride 4/27-29 Rnd 2

Will there be an alternate C-loop past that tree? A couple of feet to either side would be great. :chicken:

Re: Joker's Western MD Camp and Ride 4/27-29 Rnd 2

OUCH. There is an unusual gutteral sound made as the bike Is coming down into the tree, right before impact. Like a "ba-loop". Its hard to identify and harder to type. The camera shows the bike going right into the tree. Does the rider bounce off the tree headfirst too? God bless the majesty of hand...

Re: Delaware Enduro April 29th

OK, here I am waddling through the first two sections. Crazy how much easier it appears looking back through the GoPro fish eye lens!!
Mud was incredibly slimy, and the ruts were just evil.

Re: Delaware Enduro April 29th

Laoch - What row were you in? That mud hole in your video at 1:12 point was swallowing bikes. It wasn't as bad on my early trip in Row 20


My best moment was coming up with a home-made "roll chart" the night before the race. Ha!

Re: Delaware Enduro April 29th

Well..... I made it there. And ran through 4 tests before I was beat down and unable to continue. They had some rain the night (and week prior) so a notoriously swampy course was a muddy slimy mess. Not sure how to run the mud well. Tight serpentines through cambodian looking jungle, with a deep wet...

Re: Delaware Enduro April 29th

Yeah, I expect the muddy trail through the woods will be obvious. No worries there. :loveit: But did you see the route sheet I posted? What do all those abbreviations mean? If the BT note means blacktop (does it?) most of the instructions are all for BT turns and I won't necessarily see tracks to fo...

Re: Delaware Enduro April 29th

OK, good to hear !! Just bring duct tape, and leave my gas can at the start for a refill at the end of first total loop 31 mile mark. If the bike runs out of gas prior to that, I'll consider it a 'sign' that I am done. lol So now can we talk about this route sheet and the secret codes? My guess is t...

Need some urgent help guys .... the rider instructions include this: "It is the rider’s responsibility to carry his scorecard on the front fender of his motorcycle according to ECEA rules. The card should be placed with the top nearest the handlebars. If you do not use a card protector, tape the ca...
