Looks like TRH may have about 300 riders for the enduro.

Men, it was a tough race starting on the second loop. While I was hoping to make it back to the trailer for "lunch" but we didn't get that chance so, I wasn't able to change air filters, goggles, helmet liner, cheek pads etc. I had rear brake fade after the second special test of the morning, I was able to back bleed and continue on until the last TS of the first loop until it happened again. Starting the second loop TS, I lost rear brakes completely and I suffered dearly.

But let me go back to the early morning, I was the fastest rider on my row (Row 7) so I always led our row when starting off. I entered the 40A class with 8 other riders in various different rows, Row 7 contained 2 40A riders (myself and my good friend Craig Reed) 1 250B rider, and the other two riders I don't know their classes. As Row 1 took off at the first TS of the day, I was not in the zone at all, and was a bit worried that Craig was going to blow by me early on and leave me in his dust but, that wasn't the case. As soon as they said go, I was gone, I disappeared in front of the dust I left behind me, Craig quickly faded as the dust was quite thick and heavy, I put about 45 seconds lead on him in the first test. We had a 4.8 mile TS to race then a short transfer and break once we got to the start of the next TS which was 13.1 miles long.

I ate a Cliff bar for calories, I burned 1042 calories in the first test as I was riding hard and as fast as I felt I could ride. For the start of the second TS, again I took off, being in Row 7, I had 30 riders in front of me, 1 minute starts/delays between rows so we always had riders to pass and I had to have passed at least half of the 30 in front of me each and every test section. This was sketchy, the closer you get to the guys in front of you, the thicker the dust so you really had to use a great deal of caution approaching. I managed to get by everyone clean, they were courteous riders and I always gave ample time with my warnings that I'm coming through. By the end of that TS I had again put nearly 1 minute on Craig, I know a couple of the other 40A riders, I was riding very well with minimal mistakes which had put me in the lead of our class.

As the day goes on, fatigue sets in, you're hungry, thirsty, starting to make mistakes and bike issues arise, I had enough Cliff bars to get me by and I was eating one after every TS, I ended up drinking 3+ liters of fluids for hydration, my brakes fading and then completely going away was slowing me down, we were all tired, covered in nastyness, ready to quit, but we all kept pushing and knowing my lead was increasing with each TS, I was hungry for more but had to ride more conservative due to brakes.

On the second to last TS, I was still riding good, but having started off with no rear brake, in the sand, I started to get worried that my lead would start to disappear as well and sure enough it did, I was booking it through some flowy harder surface trail, railing along, made a few passes and was feeling good and then I came upon a turn that was rutted up pretty bad, I reached for the brakes and forgot that I had no rear brake, I screwed up, tucked the front end and hit both of my knees on the hand guard clamps, my right hand hit the bars as well right on my 3rd finger, I was hurting at all 3 points and had to take a few seconds to analyze my injuries, figure out if I was bleeding, broken or just hurt. At this point I have assessed the injuries, picked up the bike and was about to start it when Craig comes flying by me, never even looked at me just flew on by. I started up and jumped on, took off and realized I cant use my knees to hold on to the tank, this ruined my day, I couldn't ride fast, and at this point I was out of water completely.

I finished up the test in a leisurely trail ride pace, my neck was killing me and it felt as if my head weighed 1000 pounds. I was beat, broken and had all but given up now. As I finished the TS, I checked Craigs check in time and he was 3 minutes ahead of me, my lead was gone, my breaks were gone, energy gone and I was hurting so bad, but not only was I hurting, so many other were too, there was one last test to race, 10 miles long in the whoops and sand, I was done, totally exhausted, this race physically and mentally broke me, my spirits and my bike.

I ended up not racing the last TS, I knew I wouldn't make it another 10 miles suffering from the problems I had been dealing with. In retrospect, I should have mustered the courage to finish, I was still leading the race in our class and may have been able to manage the win with smart riding but It would have been close and tougher on me than I would have been able to deal with.

In calling it quits, I was disappointed in myself, did not feel that I could have finished, so it was safer to do what I did. I wasn't the only one which kind of made me feel ok with my decision.

The results aren't final yet, although I officially received a DNF, I was absolutely killing my class by several minutes. In leaving me out of scoring, the difference between 1st place and 2nd place was a mere 2 seconds gap, that is a tight race for any class at any level.

There are some protesting a "cheater" in a class so there will be several days spent investigating the accusations before the official final results are up. One guy suffered a broken arm, another young man (15 yo boy, friend of mine) suffered a dislocated knee which caused a red flag on the trail, effectively stopping the race from Row 8 back to Row 50 for 10 minutes, another reason for the protest, this TS time may be dropped from the results in order to make it fair for all riders.

Today, I feel like 2 freight trains ran me over, I raced 2 classed at the Mad Dawg nationals Saturday night, got to bed at 2 am, then up at 7 am Sunday to race a 4 hour enduro, I am beat, sore, tired, hurting and generally in a poor mood today.

I had a great weekend of racing though, ready to start over this coming Saturday morning in Bellville with TORCS for round 8 of the season.

James, Sorry I missed the races Saturday. REALLY wanted to attend, but Amanda was sicker than all get out this weekend.

You're a machine dude and a glutton for punishment!

Thanks Dbuck, there are only a few here who understand what I'm going through when racing this much and this often, plus at the level I race at, it's 100% or near as you can be the whole time, no room for slack off riding in these classes.

Hope the boss is feeling better.

Holy James! You are a machine for sure. Great write up. The SHNF is brutal right now.

Have you figured out your brake problems?

The root cause is dragging the brake or, old fluid which I flush periodically but obviously not often enough. I did order a cooler (first order of business this morning) that mounts to the caliper which has fins to help cool air hit the fins and cool the fluid down.

In the end, the fluid is so hot that it boils and when that happens, it creates air in the line and the fluid is just no good at that point.

I spoke to several enduro only riders who use this part, they are all fast guys and swear by it so I'm giving it a go and hope that it helps me out.

It looks like I have a race or, a multiple choice selection of races each and every weekend of October and 3 race weekends in November so needless to say, I'll be a busy guy unless I decide that its just too much to handle afterall, I just raced my 23rd individual race of the year Sunday.

October 18th is an Extreme race in College Station at Brazos Valley called "Thunderstruck", this is billed as a "Last man standing" race with somewhere around 20 miles of race course with every discipline of bike riding involved in the course 2 laps to be completed in 2 hours, only 1 winner in the Pro class and 1 winner in the non Pro class, I really want to give it a go but I have 2 choices on races that weekend so I have some serious thinking to do. $75 race entry for Thunderstruck close to home or, $2-300 race trip to Oklahoma City for the Black Jack Enduro..

Carbon, sounds like a really tough race, but it doesn't even come close to the 1969 CC endurO race when there was creek crossings and lack of suspension, no gear except cowboy boots and an open face helmet. Check out what real endures were all about=====CHECK OUT THESE BAD A$$ ENDURO BIKES!
