    A tough and challenging race for sure. I Raced in the Duo class and I'm wrecked. I didnt feel this bad after the payson stampede and I did 9 laps there! I wish there was something they could do about the camping area and the start/finish being so far apart. That was crazy. It was cool to run into and catch up with a few people I haven't seen in years as well.

    Very nice event and we'll be there again next year. These folks do a good job and the weather was perfect.

    Like others, I feel like they need to figure out a way to get all of the vendors, campground, start/finish in the same area to avoid confusion. And they aren't the only race/event in sore need of better signage at the registration table.

    But the course was marked really well and it was a fun one, though not a SSer's course. Really fast and smooth with a loooooooong downhill run.

    (Anyone know what the trail builders at MMP were thinking with all the water bars? On flat ground? I don't think I've ever seen that before.)

    Thank you to ALL the wonderful peeps who offered their tubes and air to me on the first lap when I have a major Slime-smothered pinch flat episode. If anyone knows the fella who had an orange trailer in the campground and tossed me a 29" tube, let me know so I can get one back to him.

    Thanks, DCB!

    The Pemberton was in better shape than I have seen it in 2+ years of riding it....even the sandy sections weren't too sandy! Great weather too!

    Thanks for a great race! My buddy and I did 4 laps each, as did the other duo team we came with. It was a long drive from Albuquerque, but totally worth it. We are in for next year (just get that transition thingy figured out.........)

    Did the course utilize Tonto, or was it the regular loop?

    I agree that was a great event (again). Nice and dry this time. I impoved by two laps over last year (with all the rain, hail and wind) and am definately more sore this year after riding the extra 30 miles. It was great to see all the familiar faces out there. The tonto was fun in the morning and dreadful in the afternoon!
    Just Ride!

    No event is ever flawless, but as races go, this was a good one. Well done, DCBA. Seems like a tough venue to get everyone parked and staged in one spot. The course was great.

    Thanks mtbkracr and welcome to MTBR
    we tried to keep out of the way and hopefully we did.
    the school bus is blast to ride
    I'm hoping others will see how much fun it is and give it a try.

    Cheers, Billy
