Chain fell off while tilting in a corner, this is the end result
Had to take masterlink out to be able to push bike in the snow
1 mile to the pits with some VERY nice hills.

i feel for you. pushing anything in the snow sucks.

I broke a chain about 5 miles into Poison Spider last year. Fortunately, a jeep towed me back. What a pain in the butt. I always keep an extra master link on me for this sort of thing.
Although, you were pretty much screwed.

Yes it did luckily that seal is not leaking so I just bended my gearshifter in a wise to match It was a deep snow groove and think rear sproket just hit a tree stump or a rock hiding in that corner inside snow.
I'm designing a bit better shield for the block and for that gearshifter. Pictures will follow.
Well anyway I'm taking my engine in parts in two weeks time, it has 114 hrs on it already and I have 3 day race (600miles) coming up on end off this month.
