Dirt Diggers is a great race, alot of my buddies say it is their favorite. Start by class is good due to not having to worry about the bomb run. I will be chasing my son in the novice mini class and then if we are not too late racing the second loop when he finishes. If any of you guys need pit support look for the blue and yellow flags, HBMC and ask to guest pit. Due to weather I am going out Sunday morning, it was snowing last night.

Is there a reason you are not driving on Sunday morning? My wife wants to come with me, but I only have room in the back of the van next to the bike

I hate driving in on Sunday morning.... no matter how early I leave it always seems like I dont have enough time. Ridgecrest is onyl about 15 mins away so that should be fine.

I just checked the Vet standings and Im in dead last



guess who is right above me??

Get used to it, I will try to keep you behind me :) I'm not surprised we are dead last though, with only one race under our belt this year.

At times it will seem like you are just trail riding, and suddenly you are on the gas and trying to stay on time. I think it was Prospectors last year, we rode for probably 10 miles at a 24 mph average through really easy terrain going out on the 2nd loop. It was hard not to wick it up, but that's what they want you to do, and then they throw in a check when you least expect. Enduro guys are some sneaky bastards
How did you make out in idaho ?
Thought it was pretty good race even with the cold temp

The preliminary results have me at 55th OA and 3rd 50+ A, not as good as I would like to have done, but I still had a good time. I got a pretty bad start, passed a lot of people and then started getting tired around the 2nd half of the second loop. It was really cold after the big water crossings!

And you?

I do not think so. You were cheating on your KTM.

Seriously, I was right behind you after the start, riding very comfortable pace. Few miles into the race right after the railroad crossing when we made right someone ran into me and I crashed hard. Luckly I landed on huge bush (and not cactus) so the landing was surprisingly soft considering this was's low speed get off. I think the other rider hit my right foot with his bike (and totally bent my header) so right after I picked the bike up I could feel the foot swelling and pulsating.

Somehow I managed to get over the pain and started riding in anger. As I was reeling you guys in few miles down the road (before the first time check) I passed 2 people going uphill but hit sharp rock on the crest and that was it - flat front. A couple of oh shit moments later I decided just to baby it to the finish. I was thumping slowly and just waving people by.

Somewhere around mile 30 I noticed that in straight whoopy sections I can still ride pretty fast considering the circumstances. So I picked up the pace and passed a couple of guys back. Brought her home but was really upset with how things unraveled.

Overall, I really liked the terrain of Red Mountain race. It was certainly less sketchy than Checkers race in Johnson Valley, and suited my style better.

Off to sleep with ice pack on my foot. Off to buy better boots tomorrow.

How did your race go?

Dennis

ohhh thats a bummer. oh well, next time!

I had a good race, got first or second on the start was tearing it up. didnt get passed until I crashed into a rockpile via a hidden rock then got stuck in a washout and had to pry the bike out from it digging itself in... first for me.

I almost ran over a guy crashed right near the end. someone was with him, so I flipped around to slow down the other racers and lost 10 or 12 spots..... so I could have done much better had I been a heartless jerk
