John Roberts asked us to his place on the beach in San Falipe. It is right on the beach! We spent a week there. It was Beautiful and 74 degrees almost the whole time down there! I adjusted valves, tested suspensions till my broken rib was just killing me! Whoops! Whoops! and some real big swallow whoops! The first part of the race is about 25 miles of whoops that most are so, steap that your skid plate drug if you roled them! Then there is a killer rocky section at the bottom (south) end of the course and then huge whoops down the long home stretch. 250 miles and Gene and David Ironman! Dana Reed and Mike Powell were 401. David Grey 252x and Gene Lane was 257x They all did great and finished. David was never able to catch up the time he lost dew to the flat tire at mile #9. I was at the first pit and changed the wheel for him at mile #23 with Johns brother. The word is Mike got lost agian but, was able to catch Gene close to the finish. They are waiting the long five hour sit at the border. I made it through in an hour because I manned the first pit and then loaded and made the run for the border early. It took me six hours to get home with a stop for eating. Last year it was a five hour wait at this time. What a zoo! Four hour drive and a five hour sit in line and stop for gas and eat and most of the guys are crashing here to jet over to ride the Soboba Ride @ 6am. These guy's are hard core! It was pooring rain here so, the tomarrows ride will be wet. Great time but, I am beat! Mr. Campbell was getting on his bike and just let out his clutch to go pre-run.......My youngest son saw him and ran up and tapped his arm. He stopped and gave them all posters and signed them, asked them questions, thanked them for supporting him, shook each one of there hands and road off. What a great guy! Made my kids day! Allen Pflueger (#28 Trophy truck) saw my kids looking at his poster in a shop window and told them if they stopped by his truck he would give them posters. They got some and he showed them his truck. Terrible Herbst gave them stickers and posters also. The trophy trucks are just insane! We where on the coarse tuning the suspension (pre-running) and they came flying through the whoops swapping the rear side to side.
