I know you will be ripping up the desert by the end of next week....be easy on the newbies and try to limit the days to 300-400 kms
El Mur at outset of 10 day ride in '05...he was That Guy for a bit...first flat at Kiki's in San Felipe the day we were to head out...his response to offers of our help earned him the 'Mr. HAppy" tag (which he normally is when he doesn't have flats ....)
and then at Coco's later that morning...
and the next day at Ricardo's in San Ignacio...no pics....I decided to stand back...
But his practice helped out Mr. Big who had so many flats we lost count...
Both these guys are headed down again in early February, so they can practice 4-minute ISDE efforts
