You gotta have huge, wide,grippy tires if you actually insane enough to do that! (the tires should ideally be close to 3")

Oh it was we got completly shredded there though we were slipping over every stump, the word hillclimb was lost from our vocabulary, and i fell in a thorn bush hahaha. but it was tons of fun. But on a strange note that mud smells like the backside of a sick dog, we threw the bikes in the van and left quickly now my van smells like... well bad stuff. But hey anyways im glad you had as much fun as I did in the rain!
