But survive we did. At the time, the idea seemed like a good one, and was it fun to bench race about the experience. But when Dudek (a frequent Baja 500/1000 podium finisher and class winner) stated how gnarly he thought it was, only then did I realize the level of accomplishment. Six months later, I returned in December and rode part of the same loop (half of it was covered in snow) on KTM's Freeride and realized how insane it was to do on a heavyweight ADV. Our advice, stick to an enduro or a mountain bike.
