Don't worry, I'm on the mend. That broken collarbone was due to a small slide riding the dirtbike on the ice. I have my new hardware installed and will be 100% long before June. I'm looking forward to it, it'll take a lot more than that to keep me away from this. Let's go team TBD!!

I'm coming, but I've worked hard to get past my disabilities...

We might have better luck inviting Patrick Beaule.

I was thinking/hoping the same thing.

It's on page one in the same spot for me. Our team had a last min addition. I got Wolfman Allen Tucker to join our team. He's practically a celebrity in his own right does that count? If any other celebrities want to come registration was open to them at the same time it was open to us. I didn't see a special celebrity registration section when I signed up. I almost got one of the Rauseo brothers to join us too he's and his brother did Dakar and his brother ran Jonah Street and the Pan America rally team for years.

I almost talked Cyril Neveu into coming but I woke up before I had a chance to ask him.

There was a glitch with the riders list, should be fixed now. Email going out in a couple of days (gpx file, writeup, etc).

A few questions we seem to get asked repeatedly...

Q: How hard is it?
A: doable . But seriously, the terrain isn't meant to be crazy hard. Lots of gravel roads. Some trails are a bit technical for bikes loaded with gear but still not what we would consider crazy. Many of you have ridden the P2D before, same sort of terrain just far less of it.

Q: what's the max distance between fuel locations?
A: +- 200 kilometers

Q: will there be many water crossings?
A: It really depends on the weather and beaver activity. If it's a dry week then about 40 notable water crossings, aka deeper than axles and longer than 30 feet, aka Know how to fix your bike if you sink it Walk any suspect crossings to see whats under the water (obstacles and surface)

Q: I'm new to offroading, will I be okay?
A: No, this ride is not meant for beginners

Q: How long is each day?
A: Covered in the writeup. 1100 km's over 3 days. We estimate 8-15 hours to complete the first day, aka plan on early starts and expect not to make the cutoff about 2/3 of the way into the route

Q: will I have to sign a waiver?
A: yes

Q: Is it a race?
A: no, in fact just the opposite...it's about meeting new people, riding fun terrain, seeing new places and hanging around a camp fire at the end of the day

Cya in June
