For the first half of the race you are allowed to have assistance from your team and fans to help you tackle the obstacles on the course. After the pit at the mid-way point you enter the "no help" zone which means there is absolutely no help allowed from anyone throughout the remainder of the race. So I went from actually trying to race in the first section of the event to just trying to survive in the second half of the race. There were gnarly up and down hills and huge rocks it was definitely the most technically challenging course I have ever ridden in my life. I was in 6th place near the end when I got stuck on a big down hill. I just worked away on the hill taking a few breaks here and there until I finally got through it. You definitely have to be an experienced rider to come out here and ride. If I didn't have some off-road, desert and trials experience I would have never survived. I focused on keeping the bike together and not making serious mistakes that could damage my KTM 300 EXC, and luckily, I survived!
