Those that know me know I am in Ca at the moment. Have been here for a year. Anyway I am trying to get serious about XC racing here (Cat 1 level - So Expert or one under the Pros) and have just finished on the same date as the Karapoti the biggest MTBiking Challenge I have ever done. Well bar some of the 12/24hr races but they are different.
Such a different race than the Karapoti. This for me was all about pacing myself.
I have done a blogpost that is for friends/family but I thought you guys might been keen to read about it.
The Race is the Warriors Society Vision Quest. Limited to 175 riders. 92km, all offroad, epic single track. 3 massive climbs. Total Climing was over 3500m. Nuts. The singletrack I had not ridden in this area and the 1000m+ descent on the Upper and Lower Holy Jim Trails was incredible.
