Back in Seattle

After a long drive we are back safe in Seattle. What a great race!

We unofficially came in 19th. The official results should be posted on the race website in a week. I will post them here once I have them. Just the fact that we were able to run the race continuously for 24 hours without a single mechanical or bodily breakdown is great by me.

Here is a video of Scott coming into the second check point on the last lap:

This has been a challenging but great experience. We are all extremely exhausted, but proud that we faced this challenge and finished. Getting out of the RV at 3:45am to get back on the bike and pound out a lap (in the dark) made me want to give up. but, now I am glad that I stuck it out!

Also, something should be said for the reliability of our machines. This terrain would destroy many types of vehicles within a few miles. But, mile after mile, our KTM racing machines never gave us any trouble.


  1. Congrats! Good job finishing! Glad everyone is safe and cheers to your KTM!

  2. wow that is an impressive ride. you guys must be dead.
