At about mile 75 of the 80 day time miles Zac Crowl was pretty much a shoe in for the night course when he fell and broke his wrist. He is having surgery to repair it this morning. Get well soon Zac!
James Belk made the night ride but have not heard how it went.
Thanks folks. Got a plate and 9 screws. No riding for several weeks. Wrist was 55degrees out of whack.
I was just cruising along, front washed out in the rocks that were building up in a curve. Went over bars and flew 10' into creek embankment. I tried to absorb the hit with my back but my wrist hit a large rock.
If you've never rode anything Spud has laid out you need to. You may only want it once. This is the 2nd Spud event I've done. He gets great joy out of you suffering and being challenged.
If your dad ever told you he walked uphill both ways to school, then he must have went school on this property. If you weren't navigating thru a treacherous creek bed you were going up a hill. Somehow we sure seemed to go up a whole lot more than down. Even the downhill was treacherous.
My first moto I made the mistake of running a knobbie. If you're not a believer in a trials tire, this place will make you one. I put my 803 on for the 2nd moto and couldn't have been happier. When you are climbing a 20% grade then have to make a turn up over a 3' rock ledge, the 803 made this nearly effortless. A lot of the hills I was nearly running out of motor on the 300, and this was 1st gear climbs. One spot you had to jump off a 6' ledge and had about 15' to stop and make a 90deg turn. The day was all about survival. I didn't survived and am pretty disappointed. At the same time it was one heck of an experience.
Hopefully my gopro caught some of the fun. I'll try to get some pics up sometime.
In the meantime, I've got lots of Kool-aid to sip. Haha!
