Everest Challenge 2-Day Stage Race With 29,000 Feet of Climbing, Sept 24/25, 2011

I registered today for the Everest Challenge 2-Day Stage Race, the most challenging USA Cycling Race race in the USA, September 24/25, 2011. See my eight page discussion of this race.

2 days · 208 Miles · 29,035 feet of climbing.

Easy— with 9 months of intense training, having lost 40 pounds of fat by riding a lot and watching caloric intake. I feel great, and I’m ready for the face— almost.

It’s not just the climbing and the distance, it’s the 60° F temperature variation— when I last did it in 2004, it ranged from 34° F to at least 95° F, but that’s understating the tandoori oven effect of certain climbs up canyons.

The key to finishing the Everest Challenge is proper hydration and smart fueling.

Look what happened to this racer who didn’t hydrate properly.
