Man that looks like fun. You guy's , in warmer climates, are killing me. I'm joansn' . I can't even get my XX out, still snowbound. I can wait till spring or even just a couple of nice, warm days. Anyhow, I'm losing my train of thought; Great pics. I hope to be a part of something like that soon.
How many quads were running? if you don't mind my asking. I saw bikes from almost every walk of life in the photo's. Looked great.

Nice Picture, had one of those days last year at Hatfield, not as bad but still pretty muddy. As long as I can see, I'm ok. Think that you might need some fenders like mine :D might eliminate some of the mud in your face

I was thinking about your front fenders about an hour into the race. they would have to be stonger mounted and about 3-4" of the tyre so the mud would not jam the front wheel. Got me thinking though as the stock front fenders in these type of conditions are as useful as a chocolate fireguard.:D

there was about 60+ of us and yes all brands where there. For some this was a first try at XC. About 80% finished.:D

The fenders are 3" above the tire and the brackets are 1/4" stainless steel rods so they should be pretty strong but if you want a thicker rod, OCC would build them for you.

The only issue I have is mounting them on the brake caliper mounting bolts.:D

Found the results there was 36 entered and I finished 18th. The DNF rate is fairly high. Only 1 Pro finished outta 8.:D

hey Bax... is that IMS tank a regular oversized or a dry break ready tank with screw adapter?
Regular oversized . With 18 litres onboard , I don't have to stop for refuelling. It also adds weight to the front end. Had to adjust front shock settings to compensate for added weight.

I was just wondering to see if you could take a measurement for me.... from the top of the screw cap (screw cap off) down to where the tank opens up... know what I'm trying to say???...
