lots of big ktms






at this elevation, glad to have FI on the 350



mike and jeremy from the bay area doing their own exploring



that bike with slicks is a multi strada - alex from greece

taking a break



the sky is always threatening, but never came down on us



glad to see c-dub after he left socal

another female rider on a 990



closing down on me




i could hear the beautiful sound of the akra as he passed me. this rider is dressed to the true ktm fashion

i don't know how this bike got admitted in the rally....hahaha, just joking alex.

better focus here






these ladies taking a break from their big KTMs



paul krause and his riders


















as we get deeper in the woods, more mud








ron lawson (dirtbike editor) helping a rider down. i think he was hurt but able to ride back to town.



no problem for alex




once we got to the open, nice riding and awesome landscape



check out the end of that road







pretty much dry here except for that little puddle



still, the forest able to bite one of us for the last time



heading back to steamboat to catch the 6pm dinner and award activities....hahaha, i can't wait.



once we're on the tarmac, everyone's gone but me.
