     The RevLimiter Extreme Enduro

    1st Annual | Decatur, Texas

The state of Texas has been waiting ten years to remind everyone how great technical racing can be in the Lonestar State. Red Bull’s Last Man Standing started an extreme mindset, but the RevLimiter Extreme Enduro is making sure the tradition continues.

Racers and spectators descended upon Rocky Ridge Ranch near Decatur, Texas, in hopes that the muddy conditions of the 2016 extreme enduros would be behind them. Unfortunately, all hopes were dashed when the rain began coming down late Thursday evening. The once dry, potentially dusty conditions, were soon slick & goopy, adding capital letters to the definitive EXTREME enduro title.

Easily one of the coolest machines seen at the RevLimiter. Unfortunately we didn’t get the story behind the bike or the rider. Be on the look out for a few Winner Take All moments if he’s at the 2nd Annual RevLimiter.

The greatest part of having a camera in the woods is watching the riders adjust themselves for the lens!

Thumbs up from the riders and the spectators. Saturday all riders were allowed outside assistance. This allowed the spectators to get involved, giving the A, B,& C riders a bit of a chance to catch their breath. It also allowed all to supply extra amperage to the rides.

Week’s Hill didn’t look like an intimidating climb, but it caught quite a few riders off guard.

Between the 1st and 2nd races, racers and spectators would warmup, refuel and attempt to dry off.

Hunter was very close to busting his ass before the 2nd race even took off.

To the Left of Carpet Hill was a very serious climb to the top of the ridge. Dry, it might of been fun to ride. Wet, it was a lesson in attrition.

The final race saw four racers make the one and a half hour time limit. Cooper Bailey missed it by 14 seconds, while a few others were minutes off the pace. “Next year” is all you could hear being whispered from their lips.
