We had a couple of long straights on Sunday, one just on 10 km long. That one was pretty deep sand with crossed ruts the entire way, but if you were experienced in sand riding, it was pretty easy to keep it pinned the entire bit.  One was about that much, but with a couple of rocky bits where I had to tap off every couple of km's.  I blew out the packing of the silencer on Sunday, on Saturday the expansion chamber started rattling, had to replace the O-rings.
