Just confirmed with Everest Challenge organizer Steven Barnes—
Everest Challenge 2014: September 26/27, 2014.
I’ve started my training for the 2014 Everest Challenge. Realistically, it’s a 10-month effort to get in peak condition that allows me a chance at top-5, or for 2014 top-3 if all goes well.
Last year, a knee problem and shoulder surgery eliminated 2/3 of the training season. But now, all bodes well for unfettered training for the 2014 effort with a symmetric crankset on a more powerful bike position.
