I live in Florida. Easy to forget about winter when our seasons are summer and almost summer. 😉

On-board footage w/ Graham Jarvis racing the 1st Round of the British Extreme Enduro Championship 2019 at Tong, West Yorkshire, UK.

Notice what he's riding?  Yep, a 2T.  No pussy 4T quad-trail crap going on there.  Gnarly conditions require the right tool for the job.

Didn’t he ride a FE250 there last year? I think he did. I think he won too. Glad to see him back on the 2T. He makes it look so easy!

I haven't ridden in almost eleven months, after watching that I'm cramping up! Jarvis is not of this world.

Yes and Yes.  It (the one he rode the FE250 in) was a very wet race from what I remember.  I think it was a combo of the TPI mapping not being sorted yet and the 250F maybe getting better traction in a totally wet course.

Yep, I'll also be running it on a 350, 4T can hard enduro just fine. See you at the Rev Limiter?

If you're using a Rekluse, will you be the guy with pink tassels on the hand grips?

In all seriousness though, that's badass.

That's the goal, Pink tassels really psych out the other riders. I'm here to win, and look pretty.

Pansies. That's not winter...

When you ride with double digits and a minus sign... That's winter.

When a short cut is 10km up a frozen Creek.... That's winter.

When your piss freezes before it hits the snow... That's winter.

When you crack a tooth on your frozen Cliff bar.... That's winter.

When you have to heat the bike in the truck exhaust, just to get it to start at staging... That's winter.

When your plastic doesn't bend, just shatters... That's winter.

When you have to twist it to go down hill through the snow... That's winter.

When your fork oil only lasts a 60km loop... That's winter.

When your bike will only run at 3/4 throttle cause the carb is all over up.... That's winter.

When you grab the brakes and they're frozen solid... That's winter.

When your goggles don't fog over but frost over... That's winter.

Anyways back to Jarvis. Was amazing to watch his poor line choice on the first lap, he really kept it together as the other fast guys were going by. Also had some real oshit moments in the rest of that lap and next as he tried to reel them in. 

That's the first time I've seen the gap jump there from POV. As the laps added up there was a sketchy rut growing... I would've shat myself.

I have to be honest, I could smoke Jarvis....(if he dried, broke up like a bud and rolled into a paper)

That's funny, I was just talking about this with a couple friends of mine today. Kind of mini piss ice cubes.
