Well, the key is to conserve energy and wailing away on 100 yards of trails just to dump it in the rough stuff seems like a waste of time to me. If the race was only 100 yards, I would be going for broke

What I wrestle with is getting into race mode, I have a very tough time doing that in an Enduro or a Hare scramble. I'm sure I'm faster on a trail ride, but charge a fee and wave a flag and I'm all fucked up It took me about n5 events to get up to speed in a Rallymoto format, so with luck I'll get in the groove soon. I'm sure you will too, nothing like this comes easy when your 40-ish

Its amazing how strong that glue is. im getting a chest mount for the camera, Thats the 2nd time a branck grabbed it. The first time I was going faster and was really glad I wear a leatt it snapped my head back good and the leatt stopped the movement I think I might have hurt something good if I wasn't wearing it. Even with the leatt it hurt pretty good. I wish I remembered to turn the go pro on. The little kid would have been pricelessplus I had a few good tip overs.

Looking at the score card pics I came up with

124 entries
13 No starts
24 DNF's (maybe some houred out not sure how it works with the scoring)


Puts me over all at 86 out of 87 finishers and 111 racers

Don't judge yourself against just "finishers", if someone hours out they may not bother calculating their score after that point. Beside you have to finish to win, so you beat anyone who didn't finish fair and square. I agree with Crank that you deserve lot of credit just for getting out there and racing. I saw a quote once that I really agree with: "I'd rather he a racer for a day than a spectator for life." Nice job.

I was looking at my score sheet I made up some pretty good time in the smoother sections I thought. I need to learn large rocks better. You see this guy?

That's Ryan Botessi, AA and winner of the Enduro. He has a trials back ground and is an excellent rider. Some people have a gift and He's been riding a long time as I recall. Ride as much as you can, its the only way to get better. A lot of ADV folks blow all kinds of money on graphics and other bling, a sticker will never make you faster

Thats why I put all my money into the rubber duck on my fender




Seriously, I know nothing beats experience. Thats why I took the extra 2 days and rode Pauchug. I can feel the difference in fitness even with the minimum amount of riding I can squeeze in. today I was rubing my shoulder and felt a bump. Took me a little while to realize its a muscle


Im gonna put a crazy plumber sticker and see how I do at the next one

I remember hanging out with Ryan and getting a little bit better just by being about ten feet from him.

Well this thread has rubbed off on me. *

When you mentioned you were gonna be spending alot of time on racing, and then when u went out for three days just last weekend it inspired me. *I told my girl I need one weekend a month where I go out riding, leave crack of dawn Saturday and come home dinner time Sunday. *I expected to hear grief and cause an argument, I guess i did it in just the right way that she said of course, complete with no hint of payback drinks for the rest of the year on me!

I know you'll take this the right way when I say I was hoping you'd do the rubbing

As for me, a plethora of enthusiasm takes over where skill drops off
