That 'death drop' ... Did anybody rag doll the landing or was it less scary than it looked? Video please!

Nice job you guys for giving it a go & coming away relatively unscathed.

There will be tons of video in the days to come, but just to get you started...

Sweet videos MotoMike.
The helmet cam video... we know video doesn't do the steepness justice and it DOES look steep! And so people know, that's Goolsby's cam and he's a bad-ass tough guy and awesome rider. So yeah, gnarly for sure!
I love the guys videoing the water crossing, drinking beer, but talking about how it should be done. Too funny.

Yes, Goolsby is bad ass, and I'm proud to say I got over that hill not too long after he did. Just wish I could have gone a little further. It says a lot when a guy like Goolsby can't make it to the final round!

Thanks for the vids Mike.

Yep, thats me,....sigh. You can see my reaction to the course worker stopping me right at the bridges edge. Lol. I was spooked after that. We got inside info that the left side was the shallow side, but I had totally forgotten.

The riding and strategy advice/criticism from the chimpanzee with the camera is going to invaluable to my preparation for next year.

Those are vids I plucked off of D37, don't know who took them. Yeah, It was just like you described it, that's why I figured it was you. Hindsight is always 20/20, you could have turned around and got another run at it. It can be done, I didn't fare as well on the boards this time, like you, I think having to sit and wait in line kind of screws up the flow. When I did it before I was able to ride right up with no delay, didn't give me any time to think about it.

Yeah, but what can you do? If it was an easy race I wouldn't have traveled so far to do it. I knew the learning curve was going to be steep and I feel like I took a lot away from it. I had a blast and I'd definitely do it again. No regrets!

Took a pretty good one. Fell in the boulders and could see the fork legs getting gnarfed up, and all the water/mud/slurry doesn't do it a bunch of good either. However, as stated before, I had a bunch of body work and the pipe were all really beat up stuff, saved just for the occasion

Part of me really wants to be able to kick ass at stuff like this and the other part of me doesnt want to spend that much time driving out to places to practice getting that awesome



either way
