Dual Sport Desert Daze 2011 (Pt 2)

Sorry for the extreme delay in updating! Finals week kind of knocked me for a loop and then I went to Central America for a month.

I’m back now though with much more free time!

Soooooo at last DSDD Part 2!

Riders gathering in the morning for a ride lead by Mountain Dog to Jackson Cabin.

The trail started out nice enough, graded roads with some small climbs and short rocky sections.

There’s never pics of the exciting parts…here’s some graded dirt road. ­čśŤ

Then we hit the GIANT EVIL NEVERENDING SAND WASH OF DOOM

The sand started to wear me out and then I started crashing…

But there was no bail out option, the wash just KEPT GOING

Until I was ready to die.

We took a little break.

And then there was more sand…

If I pick my bike up before the picture is taken, the crash never happened…

SAND SAND SAND SAND

Some cool rocks (to break up all the sand pictures)

DEEP EVIL SAND

Eventually we make it out of the sand, but about half of us are too tired to continue on to the Cabin.

I head back to the bar seeking to medicate my aching muscles with black russians (a drink now on my ban list)

I awake the next morning in no shape to ride…which ends up just as well because just as it did last year, it is snowing!
