I don't really have too much to add. I'm not quite the picture master as NS. I do have a couple though.

With 16 riders there was A LOT of this.


After Fearless Leader had to pack it in, we were down to 8.
What kind of ride would it be without a flat right?
But why did it have to be me?


When I pulled the tube, this is what I found. WTF????


At this point we lost 3 more who made a beeline for the trucks. That put us down to 5.

After changing the tube my gopro battery went dead and I was on a mission to get back to the trucks. Needless to say there were no pictures or video after that.

But most of all it was a LOT of fun. Good ride, good people to ride with, REALLY good food and a good ride coordinator.

Thanks a bunch to Fearless Leader for a great ride.

Strappy, Holy smokes, what did you do to that poor tube! Looks like you were in a knife death match.

Great pics guys! Sorry I missed out.

Crazy right? Never seen such a thing. Maybe I thought I still had the Tublis in place and I was inflating the center tube to 100psi.

I agree...A wise dirt rider once said...you do not quit riding because you get old...you get old because you quit riding......
