  1. Really liked the interview.
    I am the trail boss at Boldlygo trail in Carlton Reserve. We held the 4th annual Piggy’s Revenge this month, including a 60 mile gravel grinder. The wild ferrel pigs tear up the trails, hence the name! I run accross gators and occasionally the odd rattlesnake. See you on the trail..

  2. Really looking forward to riding this event again, is anyone out there looking for anyone to ride/train with in the next coming weeks before the event? I’m a homestead local and know the trail roads very well. If you are reading this and want a partner to ride with shoot a text @ (786) 382-4837 –DANNY
