Babysitting; You need to be able to take care of yourself out there! This race is BRUTAL on the mountain or gravel course and should not be entered into lightly, not only will the distance and elevation eat the unprepared alive but the terrain is also difficult even for the seasoned rider.
Personal gear we strongly recommend bringing; Bear spray (mandatory), tools, tubes, water storage, water purifying tablets, lite jacket, and a navigation device (With amply battery).
Race Awards; At this time we do not do race awards. This is due to the fact that the finishers of our race are spread out over a long period of time and often racers will leave within 1-hour after finishing the race. As we grow this may change but for now, this is not a ceremony we hold.
Rest stops are stocked with lots of water and emergency nutrition. We find most riders prefer their own nutrition so pack your drop bag for your own rest nutrition.
