Now the er, dust has settled the reflections begin. Without question this was one of the toughest Mayhem events in its 15 year history. The rain during the week ensured the ground was soggy at the start, which made for some extreme ‘plastic’ mud clogging. The first lap was completed in a record breaking (for length) 1hr 7 minutes, which served to impress on all the waiting pit riders just how extreme their lap was going to be.

Early evening saw more rain come through that continued right through the night and into the early morning. It was some comfort to the riders that this new rain turned the sticky mud to proper runny slurry that at least fell off bikes and allowed them to work.
For the first time in its history the rules were changed to allow teams lap totals to stand if they took the decision to stop racing before the 24 hours were up. Many took that option but equally many chose to slog on to the end and the traditional Pat Adams handshake on the line.
