Dirt Photographer Sven didn't do to badly himself either with a creditable 87th.

" 87th out of 2000 after start from hell. Got trampled by 100 riders after my usual OTB. Then glacier roosted. What a day"

Andrew Neethling finished 15th.

"Update: 400 riders starting on the top of a glacier..carnage, sliding ass first down the glacier didn't help...what a tough race..15th place in the Mega Avalanche"

Full report, photos and DirtTV video to follow, stay tuned. Also news from the Monmouth Old Folks which I know you've all been waiting for.

Au Revoir.
