Hi,
I applied and paid online on April 28 and I don't see my name listed. I'm wondering if there is anything else I need to do to make sure I'm registered.

Also, I had originally signed up for the d/s ride. I have since injured my wrist and would like to change to the Adventure ride. I'll be riding a KTM 1190R on that one.

Regards,

Paul Hansen

Hey Paul,
I checked my backups and clearly, there you are. Somehow I missed your entry! Will add you today and change to Adventure. Sorry to hear about the wrist!

We finally got the trophies for this year's Black Dog - we think they look great and hope you do too!

We also uploaded the Pre-Ride Poopsheet!

Any chance we can get the GPS files in advance? (registered participants only of course)

Sorry, but no. We've been burned by this in the past. We will offer them at the event for paid entrants only.

Hey Tom,
My wrist is feeling a lot better and on the advice of Steve Wobber, I'm wondering if I can switch to the B loop for both Saturday and Sunday. I'll still be on the KTM 1190r. Thanks!

Thanks to everyone who helped make this ride possible. It was my first dual sport ride and my second day of single track ever! I had a blast! The course was easy to follow. The website was helpful to get ready. I can't believe all the work it must have taken to get this event ready and run it so smoothly.

Thanks also to all the people on the trail. You couldn't have been nicer and more free with suggestions on how to spend more time in the seat and less time on the ground under the bike. You were also quick to stop and help out if it was needed. You're the best and I'm glad I wasn't out there alone. By the way, I was relieved when I found out ABC was all running together on Sunday. Saturday was plenty of trail for me for this first time out.

I'm looking forward to a lot more of this. Hope to see you at Rat Dog later this summer. Great event and great people!

Cheers, JR
