GU Energy send me a case of the mix flavor gels and GU Brew Electrolyte tablets. The mix flavors had some good ones and a few funky ones. I always throw a few extra ones in my jersey as you never know and the funky ones are always great give aways.
This will be my first change to use the Electrolyte tablets. I will let you know what I think in a few days.
I was 3rd out of water, crushed the swim in 11 minutes. My plan was to pedal smart, hold my position and save it for the run. 5 miles into the bike, I was 4th or 5th and boom....I flated the front tire. I rode it to the rim, changed it as fast as possible. Even a couple of minutes lost on a fast course like Reveille Peak Ranch is the difference between finish at the front or middle of the pack.
I still picked up some point for the Xterra series. Looking forward to the next race.
Thanks for being there: @Trekbikes @Suunto @GUEnergy @Kswiss @Xterraoffroad @rprtexas @TriFitRacing
I'm headed out today for a pre-ride before tomorrows race. If you get the chance to ride at the Reveille Peak Ranch do yourself a favor and get out there. It's a great facility and some of the best single track around. A lot of trails have just one element to offer, twist, rollers, flat, climbs, etc... Not the Reveille it has a trail to offer whatever gets you excited.
This is my first Xterra for the season. I will use it to dial-in my equipment and get a feel for my fitness level. I will be racing on my new Trek Fisher SuperFly 100 29'er. Looks like the trail will be fast, flowing, rocking, with a few climbs. I'll set the bike up today as I go, but my guess will be a tight suspension for fast, flowy and climbs.
I want to thank Jamie at the Rpr for welcoming me and getting me point down the right trail.
Kimani and I pedaled into the Ex2Adventures 9hr Cranky Monkey race with a expectation to have fun. First or last as long as we had fun getting there. Between us we hammered out 11 laps of fun. I could not have pedaled with a better partner. We are already discussing what in next on the duo team race schedule.
I am running 31 miles this weekend as part of the CAF team in Tampa at the Gasparilla Distance Classic.
