Just curious. How much harder than the back way to crown king. From the pictures lots of jeeps get there and with some work you got some big bmer's up there.

Take the hardest part of the backway & that's what most of the ride is like.
Then add some techincal stuff & your close.
The ride is unique, once we leave the pavement it's game on, no cruising (resting) anywhere.
The way we do it, it's essentially a race to Los Hermanos for lunch & nobody wants to be late.
If your bike breaks down, it'll be interesting for you to retrieve the net day. If you break, you'll likely be paying for a helicopter ride.
Big rocks, little rocks, ledges, step ups, step downs a little deep sand here & there & more rocks.

I would consider myself a b minus closer to a c plus rider. Looks like it could be fun and challenging

Thanks for the low down. I was considering it but I like to go a little slower pace. Got my racing out of my system after 30 years racing karts.
Thanks

Don't worry about the slow part, I am an old fat, I mean "Husky" guy and these guy's won't leave us behind......for long anyway!

This ride is just unrelentless (sp?) it never gives you a break, just when you think okay, it hammers you again! But it sure is fun. Except for Honda hill that is. I dislike that 200 yard section very much! This year though, it is mine baby!!

Big E will be on a mission this year on Honda Hill so everyone had better clear the way...........Mongo is coming through.

What's a good race time to place and/ or win?

Hey Kevin, those of us on the other side of the Valley will likely ride a day or two that holiday weekend. Better plan on heading up this way with the Husky...
Perhaps AZTom can drop off the Mountain and join us.

I would like to play with you boys... but that is a 2.5 hour drive for me. Not to mention it's on the far side of that "Hole in the sand" they call Phoenix. I've mentioned before, I get scarred when I get too far from home.
I do take great pleasure reading the RR. you boys put together!
