Got back a few hours ago, it rained all day Saturday. Rode 300 miles and 6 plus hours in it. Oh well, we were there, might as well ride.

2014 GS Trophy...

That was an awesome experience. It was like a great ride...it just kept getting better and more challenging. In spite of some "hurry up and wait", the whole thing was run fairly smoothly. The waiting allowed us to get to know some of the others and BS about riding. VA and WV are going to get a few new riders from out of state.
I believe I got about 90% of Andrews team run and entire final ride but as you all know, it's going to take some time to put it together. I hope to get a highlight reel before the end of the week. The team event was probably like compressing a weeks worth of workouts into one 45 minute event. Just plain brutal. But teamwork is what got the bike across the finish line.

What a blast. I'm really a commuter who occasionally gets off-road so I really was not in my element but I had a great time. Watching the guys on the last day made me genuinely glad I was not in the top 12. It was brutal in many ways. It was tiring just watching them and I have nothing but respect for all of them.

I am trying to find more pictures and can't seem to find the GS Trophy Challenge page on Facebook. I can't find much of anything to show my family what it was like so any links would be greatly appreciated.

I'm sore just thinking about carrying a 500 pound bike through the woods.

Great job man... I don't care what the score sheet says, you had a really good run and your teamwork was beyond compare. You should be proud.

Listed this bike to inmates for $1800 in bikes. Less than 4500 miles. Bought in 2010 for my 14 year old. It had 1200 on it then. Dyna Jet kit, new rear trials, skid plate. Listed on local Craigslist for $2000.





The boy's first bike.



The second. Somewhere Colorado.



Third.



Hell, he's growing up.

Update:

I've got a pinky promise to a guy in Alabama until this evening and then I'll go down the list. Thanks for your interest.
