Hey... you desert racers were riding lot of different terrain than I did back in the Midwest.
Most of our enduro's were 100 miles or less sometime we had to make two loops to get in decent milage. However several of our stages averaged 8 to 10mph for 25miles or soo. Lot's of mud and long rutted, tree riddled, hill climbes, did I mention mud and oh yes we had some mud!!!
A much different world from those who rode in the Western deserts.
