Then I spied my chance.....there was a mud hole ahead and Sol opened the gate for me and I surged ahead to try and cover him in mud. Didn't quite work though but the laughter inside my helmet was warming. Then disaster, the KTM Gods had taken over and the rear tyre on the DR deflated suddenly. A couple of others stopped and we ripped off the wheel and went about changing the tube on one of those bloody DR rears - they are terrible. My car tyre iron and compressor came in handy and the first aid kit even supplied a band aid for the finger I punctured too. Mind you, the assistance was greatly appreciated as I started to run out of puff trying to be super quick with the repair.....thanks guys...
Trev, I heard you coming along side of me so I gave the 690's throttle a blast & instantly took off at a fair rate of knots with the front wheel lofted through the muddy weren't in for a chance mate...
