Ha, I watched the video this morning on the big screen. My favorite part is when he said “give me the f*****g bike” and rode some guy’s KTM 300 up a short section to break up a logjam on the trail. Pol Tarres is a cool dude…
Pol Tarres beat a lot of good riders on his T7. He almost beat Kailub Russell, who won the prologue and started 15 minutes ahead of him on the front row. I wonder if Pol could win the overall at the Baja 1000 on that bike?
Kailub said he had troubles with his bike and lost time fixing it. Pol Terres is a beast as was David Knight, and Taddy Blazusiak. Both riders suffered when KTM made them ride 4-strokes several years ago. One of my endurof heros, Graim Jarvis lost an hour at the start but still did a inspiring ride.
Yeah, I read that due to bike problems Graham Jarvis started in 500th place, an hour behind everyone else, then somehow finished 20th. He was then DQ’d as someone else touched his bike while he was fixing it before the start. I would really love to see Jarvis’ GoPro of that ride – passing 480 riders. Wow!
