I went to this thing feeling a little heavy from leadville and the Brec-epic.
I wore two pair of shorts so that I could sit as much as possible on my hardtail.
I ate as much candy and gu as I could. I rode my own race. I ran super high pressure so as to not pinch flat.
I began to feel my best after 3 hours. When I pulled into the last feedzone I ran over something sharp and began squirting sealant. I was very fortunate to have my TruckerCo latex seal it up and ended up holding 30 psi. Even with only 10 miles to go I was still stoked to not have to use a tube. I hate tubes. If you have tubes you either have too heavy of tires or you ride like a pussy or you get a lot of flats.
We got cash for the top 5 and chairs for under 8 hour finishers.
