    Damn what a ride, first the Waterfall section that sqeezed out all the juice outta me, than the Snake Trail upwards, what a torture and then after that connection to Samoeng and onto a river bed. About 120 Km which where mostly done on dirt and rocks. No wonder I feel sore everywhere today, haven't been on the dirt bike for 2 weeks. The longer the break the more rust one collects. The last 10 km I was barely able to hold my handle bars. What a day and some awesome dirt riders. Unbelievable speed over this technical staff, had hard time keeping up...555
    Today no music with the video as I am too tired

    Today we were quiet a few, that is good fun for sure. Gives me some time to actually film a little more than just trying to follow the frontman. The tracks are getting better and better, every time we go and what once seemed to be impossible out of a sudden becomes a nice track. The newbies did really good...

    what a beautiful day it was, today started from Mae Rim and slowly worked our way towards Samoeng, I crashed and broke my clutch lever, but it was an easy fix once we reached Samoeng, the next shop had a replacement for me for 120 Baht. From Samoeng we went on Road for about 10 km before we came on the Race Track from the Enduro Team of Chiang Mai. Very nice and fast single trail, but a little dusty at the moment. From there we entered a river section with giant boulders and rocks all over the place (love this stuff). This section put a lot of stress on riders and bikes alike, but we did better than expected and reached the river crossing in no time. Than I crashed again on a steep climb and flipped the bike over, because the carburetor cut out and the engine stalled at the last part. Bruised Belly and a Knee sprain once again. Today was crash day for me. Would I do it again? Most definitely yes

    it is getting hot outside now and the air is burning from the toxic mix of forest fires and smog, best thing to jump onto the bike and do some forest exploring. we started with 4 people, but the very first section one of the guys had some engine issues, they decided to turn around. good for me and Erich to explore some more of our crazy tracks. what seemed to be a gnarly downhill section just last week ago, became a crazy hill climb section. Erich got up there with the first attempt. my first attempt was a failure and second attempt I sent off my bike over the gap. luckily it got caught up in a tree branch. the cliff there was about 30 m and pretty steep, not a good area to do crazy stunts or mistakes. somehow with some help from E. I made it up there in one piece. the rest of the day was some fantastic single trail but very dusty at times. so dusty that at one section i was to close to E. and I landed in a deep rut and had to turn around to try again
