Dirty timing chain / stoker

Chris Lee2018-05-28 14:49:51

With reasonably full mudguards front and rear (see photos), when riding on slightly muddy railway tracks my stokers feet, timing chain, and the rear chain rings and drive chain always end up absolutely caked in mud. Generally my own feet on the front are clean! I can’t figure out if it’s all spray from the front wheel or mud captured under the rear mudguard dripping back on to the rear chain from above, or a mixture of both.
Has anyone  else suffered from this / got any suggestions to how I could adjust / modify my mudguards to prevent / minimise this ?
