I didn't get a look at it though, I was like I'm good =P
It was the same downhill this year according to Drew. There was a significant group of riders milling about on top psyching themselves out as I rolled by, over, and down. Got to take a break at the bottom while our riders regrouped and enjoyed the circus entertainment provided back up on the hill.

It really isnt that bad unless you were on a GS. Cactus Puncher would have owned it.

Yeah I put the 13t sprocket on just for it but I don't regret taking the alternate route I'd never ridden that trail before and it was fun =)

HadesOmega X Cactuspuncher VS LAB2V Part 7
With fatigue and exhaustion setting in I ride through the Nevada desert towards the final goal Las Vegas. In the way stands a rocky trail...

Good stuff Merlin. When you say “Go Left “ or “Go Right” are you looking at your GPS or seeing the streemers to show you the way? I never see you advance the roll chart.. one wrong fork and you could get way off track.

Yeah that roll chart I said F that a long time ago, I was having problem with it earlier also. But yeah I'm talking about the GPS. I'm looking at where the line is going. Basically I use the GPS and streamers. I look at the GPS and see the direction the track is going and go that way and usually when there is a turn or some sort there is the blue and pink streamers. It works REALLY well, last time I blew a bunch of turns but I was very good with the navigation this year.

I wish my trailtech vapor had a handble bar mounted reset switch. I found out that the other trailtechs have this feature but the vapor doesn't grr.... So I have to pretty much stop everytime I want to reset my trip meter for the rollchart and waste time trying to press the 2 buttons simultaneously.

Part 10 was killer!

Your bash plate took a really hard hit!

I liked it when the guy was helping you and he says -
"Put it in second and slip the shit out of the clutch" Yep, that did it..

Yeah i was surprised it works! Shows how good I am at rock crawling haha. It's just one of those things you don't learn unless you ride it a lot. It's like riding sand we don't have a whole lotta sand to ride here in the bay area so you just don't get enough practice riding it same with rock gardens. But yeah I don't like riding my DR through that kind of stuff but it'll do it like a tank!

But yeah that was the famous Red Rock Canyon rock garden I have been hearing about it didn't disappoint, I wish I could have gone into it with a fresh body instead of a tired one =/ It was TOUGH me and the bike were overheating in the canyon. You don't see it in the video but i took a lot of breaks. But I knew we were close to the end so I started loligagging more haha

Also I don't know why the video turned out overexposed, I guess the light hitting the trail was too bright or something, it looks worse in real life.

Oh yeah also about the bash plate I looked at where it hit and I think if I didn't have skid plate I would have hit the engine case and it would have been all bad.

I think it's was bad body position or something. I remember when I came up for that one my plan was to try and splat it but I hit it at an angle instead of straight on and down I went instead of up. I kinda pictured in my mind what I wanted to happen and then it happened but not what I wanted to happen hah.
