He finished in last after the entire bike fell apart inlcuding the starter. At one point he used a rope and a camel to bump start it in soft sand. He had never ridden a bike on the street or gone around a corner...only back and forth on a dirt road

He moved on and gained a bunch of experience and after a few failed attempts he finished the Dakar in 2011 (? I think).

Last year he spruced up an xr650l and attempted a record speed for circumnavigating Africa. He had a bad, bad crash.

I'm stoked to see he is back competing again...but what the heck is riding
Thanks so much for the kind words.. I really appreciate.
