Everest Challenge Stage Race and Fun Ride (8/23-25, 2013) Yes, circumstances have pushed us to either earlier or later than the weekend we would really prefer. But this is our new home on the calendar.
This is the one everybody talks about, and looks forward to every year. The toughest back to back days of climbing at altitude. Anywhere. Same course as 2012, including the *extra* bit up Waucoba Canyon. This will be the permanent EC course.
Even better support, more goodies in the goody bags, more Free Friday Feast, and more of everything you love about the best road race – and fun ride – on the planet!
Ouch. Late August can be HOT. As in 100° or more tandoori oven style in certain canyons. Bring the intravenous saline drip for those who forget to take the right amount of electrolytes.
With the knee and shoulder thing, I’ve already lost nearly 2 months of key early season distance training, and now with the Everest Challenge a month+ earlier, I’m just going to do my best.
