Thanks Mike for bringing us along via ADV on your amazing experience. You have said it all. We have said it all. Most of us can't even think what to say, it's so amazing. Josh's bike back in it's beautiful crate with hardly a scratch on it. I am shaking my head. Did this really happen? How did it happen? Who is this 17 year old that we can all take so many lessons from???

Congratulations Josh!

Congratulations Josh!!!!

The Knight Support Crew relaxing and checking out one of the Special Tests on day 4.



At the end of the Tarmac and towards the Gravel for some of the Moto Action.



Down towards a wicked left handed off camber.



Like Mike said, Mike Brown (30) and Charlie Mullins (34) were hauling the mail today.





Really great to be there and watch all the action, and meet some really great people!

Wow...I agree nothing ever seems as steep as it is in the video. I just watched how hard great riders struggled with it

Well done to your young bloke!

When you get home you might want to show him how it was done "Back in the day!" It's titled 'Welsh 2 day' but the US rider interviewed speaks of the six day...


Too bad I don't speak a word of Welsh!
