The V2R is a lot faster than I thought. Not that much technical stuff and mostly WFO. I'm considering trying the race this year on the 990.

Hey Radek,
So good to hear from you! Sorry I dropped the ball and didn't give you much of a heads up.

[Edit - Oh good, you were able to embed that video! ]

Wow, what a GREAT save! Whew!
Nice one!
And, Radek didn't show it in this clip, but he really hauled balls afterwards!





Matt and I were also surprised at the V2R course - as you mention, much faster and less technical than expected.
I think you would prefer some of the Nevada parts of the TAT (TransAmerica Trail).
More sandy single track/narrow double track through sage brush...
A couple loose rocky climbs...

Next time!


But, you should definitely do the V2R on your 990. You would kick some serious ass!
Just don't run a Mitas (the Flat Maker)



Thanks again for coming down from BC just to play...
(and for loaning us the rim. we'll be in touch about that...)

Thank you for the kind words!
But you learned something? Wait, really?
That's great, but I can't imagine what it could be in this RR...






I do know what you learned in the Baja Wan-Thousand ...
be extra careful in Baja if your name is Scott!











Thanks for all the sweet comments, everyone!
You guys are great.
Have fun and GO RIDE!
