- How would you describe the course/track? Was it any really long tough stages with dunes and soft sand?
- I saw on the DVD that some riders arrived after dark, do you need to bring a good LED-light to put on the helmet?
Mike:

  • Food was supplied, all made with bottled water.
  • I didn't have any stomach issues the whole time....Noodles, rice, and some lamb meat things i couldn't identify, but ate a lot of. Drinking water was provided, all from bottles. I wouldn't worry about bringing a stove set up.
  • I would bring snacks and stuff to add to the lunch packs that were provided.
  • I never finished after dark, but some folks did, just a bike headlight would be good, a helmet light may be overkill.
  • The track was wonderful, a few sand days, but nothing too horrible. Lots of beautiful tow track and a good mix of rock washes and desert. A handful of riders were on 250cc bikes and pulled through it all.


We saw camels, goats, yaks, cows for miles.....not a single fence, just open range land and great views.
