Q) Am I ready for Mohican?
A) NO… I never am.
It looks like my training has been more consistent this year. Last year I got close to nothing in late March / April.
Training: After running the numbers I have 82 more miles, 8.4 more hours and 16897 more feet climbed. About the same amount of training. Let’s see if I can beat my 6:30 minute time last year. Last year I was on my geared MTB, this year I’ll be on my Niner Air 9 SS.
Strategy: Don’t blow out in the first section of the race. This is an exciting single track section, but the race is long. I’d rather be passing people later on in the race instead of being passed on those looong ass uphill grinders which seems to be the case.
Nutrition: Endurolytes (black magic). HOney Stingers, and GU Chomps with caffeine. I’ll stop at some aid stations for PB&Js and other misc. stuff. Water, I’m going to have 2 water bottles. One on the frame and one in my jersey. The new frame has 2 bottle mounts but there is one on the bottom of the downtube. This is just asking to get smashed / fall out.
