Well a few of us went down to the Chile Challenge and had a good time playing down there. We did a few trails Tabasco Twister, Rocotillo Rapids and Patzcuaro's Revenge. Rocotillo Rapids was our favorite trail. We ran Patzcuaro's Revenge with some guys from Denver but we didn't get any photos of you guys sorry. =( We have a few photos of the trip on our club site so if you want to check them out click here (http://www.brokenyokes.com/album_cat.php?cat_id=9).

Great pics! It's been about 4 years since we've made it to Las Cruces...but it still looks as awesome as I remember. I'd love to go to Chile Challenge sometime. What did you think of the event itself?

it was good it just seemed like a long drive for trails that have 3 to 5 obstacles, it was a little over 600 each way for us. The weather was great, it was in the low 70's each day :) They did a nice job of putting the event on IMO and from what I could tell the locals love to come out and watch people run the trails. We never made in back to the fair grounds for the free dinners so I couldn't tell ya how the meals where.

He thought that you guys needed something to make it a little interesting. How was the group run through there? Didn't you guys run that the day before after Patz?

Yea, we ran it with two rigs in about 40 min. that day after patz. It took about 6 hours to get, i think it was 10 rigs, through on sat.

That is what we thought was going to happen so that is why we hit it first thing in the morning. We had 5 rigs and one rollover and it took us trailer to trailer about 2 1/2 hours.

I couldn't believe the number of spectators on sat. The parking lot on top looked like a broncos game. I made sure to make an ass out of myself on the very first obstacle by getting high centered. At least i was able to get off the rock by myself.
