    Great run. Had you not had to contend with people starting in front of you and getting in the way causing you to fall you'd have been in the top 8-10 easily. I was hoping you'd push a little harder on the last roadway before the final single track through the woods to get to the narrows first but the dude slipped by you just before it and there was little chance of passing him after that, what with the dust in the air obscuring the right line. Excellent run and enjoyable vid.

      @dcamp29 interesting, the guy who passed you has his own vid of the event, and you are right, he crashed on the glacier close out of the gate at a bad line, slipping on the ice but continuing a good long way on a rocky patch that, from his swearing, I am guessing hurt quite a bit.

      @dcamp29 That particular spot is a bitch. I've watched Kilian Bron's recording from this year's Mega over virtually the same track and he lost to Borges at that exact spot (though I think Borges was playing with him the whole race). Tiredness has long since settled in, so much of the race is behind you so the adrenaline has started to fade, the roadway bit isn't very long but has a rise and the legs are knackered. That's why I like enduro, the hill challenges break up the downhill and require more than just fearlessness. You did incredibly well. Thanks for the video.

      Thanks! The guy who passed me there was Youn Denauid- top 10 EWS guy... I think he'd crashed earlier because his arm was all bloody. Either way- I was givin her up the hill, just out of gas haha

    Very well deserved placement my man! Sucks you didn't start a bit farther ahead than you did thought... All that passing wasn't good for your placing but meh, you crushed it anyway!
    Also.. HEY BABE!

    A clear image of a racer that pushes his limits.
    Possibly a bit too hard, too early.
    But he does keep on pushing despite the pain.

    This is awesome. I've just learned of these races, looks ridiculously fun. What was starting elevation?

    • dcamp29
      dcamp29  5 months ago

      Yes- most fun races ever. Starting elevation on this one is over 10,000ft/3,300m. Ending is somewhere around 2,000ft/700m.

    I have watched far too many of these already and I can tell you that a lot of these guys need to learn a bit about slipstream distances. Watch some road race examples. At 21:20 ish you see this guy using it and then get overtaken by a guy who was doing it better. You want to be half a bikes length from the guy in front of you and if they are doing it to the guy in front of them and the guy in front of them is doing it too you won't even need to peddle on the flats - so you'll save yourself for the hills and blast past everyone.
    Great job. I probably couldn't do what you guys do, even with the theory behind me. Keep it up!

    Do they select riders or can anyone sign up and qualify?

      dcamp29 thanks a lot for the fast reply, that’s awesome, something to look forward too. I’m happy for you that you were able to experience this, it looks like you had a lot of fun.

    • dcamp29
      dcamp29  8 months ago +1

      Anyone can sign up. There are 10 qualifying races of about 140 people each the day before to sort out fast/slow riders into groups. The final races (this one) have about 350 line up to start (I think there are 4 final heats from fast to slow).

  • kay poly
    kay poly 9 months ago

    All I want to know is, if I have an XC bike what tires can I run to be able to ride on ice without sliding all over the place? this seem to be the longest kept secret in the bike world.

    • dcamp29
      dcamp29  9 months ago

      @kay poly No- I use those tires for normal XC riding around my home (very rocky).

    • kay poly
      kay poly 9 months ago

      @dcamp29 And I suppose you rode the XC with the dhf/icon combo in the snow too? because, that will be too much on dry land.

    • dcamp29
      dcamp29  9 months ago

      @kay poly For this race I ran DHF 2.3 DD front and rear with cushcore front and rear. On my XC bike I run a DHF 2.3 EXO in the front and Icon 2.35 EXO on the rear. Again- nothing really works on ice.

    • kay poly
      kay poly 9 months ago

      @dcamp29 DHF front and rear? what combo. Don't be vague, give the entire details. and remember I said, XC bike/short travel bike.

    • dcamp29
      dcamp29  9 months ago

      Real ice? Nothing works. Just don't do anything when you ride on ice- no braking, no pedaling no turning. Just sit there and coast across ice in a straight line. I ran Maxxis Minion DHF's for this race. They were fine on the snow.
