Salty Dog 6 Hour Enduro

Posted on May 20, 2011 by NRG

Neslon local and NRG family member just came back from the Salty Dog with an awesome race result. Second place!! Here is Travis’s account of his Birthday weekend.

Hey guys,

I am really exited to let you know I placed 2nd this weekend behind Corey Wallace at the 10th annual Salty Dog. Corey had a maechanical so I was holding 1st from lap 3 to 6 and then I had a crap session and Corey caught and passed me and he went on to completing 10 laps and made a new course record. I was glad to be done after 9 laps.

I was worried about my achilles but it didn’t flare up so I went hard.

Paddy destroyed his palms from riding ridged. The course gets rough on the descents but the guys is tough as nails and he ripped it up.

I wouldn’t have be as successful without my lovely lady passing me bottles. It was a hot day and I am grateful she hung out for six hours in the heat. Glad we the NRG tent!

I ate almost 2 shots per lap and I think I should have drank more Nuun might not have cramped. My new Ikon 3c exo tires were great. Thanks NRG.
