Heh. I wish I was there to take it. This (and most of the shots like it) is from the webventure.br boys, from Ned's official media pack.

The first time I met Ned, I hadn't been in camp 30 minutes and we were suiting up as fast as we could to for a ride. I don't think I have that actual ride video posted, but I do have the exact same route posted from that same weekend in the inverse direction. Watch this video and realize that the guy in front of me with the trials tire is 6"6' tall, or something like that he makes a full size KTM look like a little 65 under his super tall body. Also realize we are going downstream in this video and Ned and Tim dragged us UP this same dry river bed, and if we couldn't make his pace we weren't lucky enough to see the "EASY" line. He and Hillsamer put the hurtin on us that afternoon, and I was the first of us new guys to catch up to Hillsamer and Ned. Ned had a funny look, craning his neck to see into my helmet the closer I got, like I had a something wrong with me. I got closer and pulled off my goggles and asked "Whats up?" He said "I'm trying to see if you have a smile on your face?!?!... If your enjoying this stuff?" with a big smile and an affirmative response he and Tim and I broke into laughter. With that, I think he hollered and endearing "OK, Ill ride with you!!!"

It was "trial by fire" (almost literally TRIALS) but a very warm welcome after only knowing him less than 30 minutes.

I know video never does "being there" any justice but the drop at 1:42 is well over 2 feet. Remember Ned and Tim were dragging us (Zach and Paul and I) UP that trail. LOL
Zach is leading us, and that's Paul in the Blue next to me at one point. Sorry there's no audio track on this one, my camera does that sometimes.

With Smugmug under the weather here for a bit, my usual bushy, blond hair...



I'll make what hair I do have sticking out go away.


Go Ned!

The world is not ready to deal with me hairless! Sorry, nein nein. Too cold here.

Hey, I saw this pic on the Cliff Notes thread and it sure sounds like the hill the Ned rode/rolled down today. Note that these guys are walking their bikes.

So much drama... So much anticipation! We joy when he's sailing, and fear when he's late. We speculate about what might be going on in between...Then the incredible relief we feel when Dakar reports him safely at the finish of his daily special.

After that we patiently await his call to RallyRaidio to learn about the dragons he faught, and how he thrilled at the chance to try. What an emotional roller coaster. Two weeks of it! Unbelievable...

I take it back... It's not just a first in motor racing. It's a first in all of sports!

You hit the nail
On the head. It's been addicting. To be able to be apart of it all has been a real treat. ADVrider KICKS ASS!

Does anyone know if Ned plans on doing a presentation your of his Dakar? This would be great subject matter for a movie and a tour like "Long Way 'Round" only ten times better. If Ned did a tour and presentations at KTM dealers around the states, I'd be first in line for a ticket just to shake his hand!

The proceeds could go to finance next years Dakar.

Go Ned Go!
