I think the focus of this blog will be on multi-day events instead of ultra events in general. Training for multi-days is not unlike training for 100 milers, 12 hour races and 24 hour races so a racer can get useful info from the numerous mtb training blogs as well as those by 24-hour racers.
With this blog I can compare the ones I’ve done to each other and I know several racers who I can interview that have done several of these types of races, many more than I have. Gear for these types of events are usually limited to one bag (unless a team is local or is going the RV route) so I can cover that too. Two-person team dynamics is extremely important and I’ve seen what works and what doesn’t so a few posts on that are in order. I also have old La Ruta & Transrockies race reports that aren’t on my webpage.
Overall, I’d like to help reduce the learning curve for these types of races since they’re so damn expensive.
