This weekend is the 12 Hours of Santos mountain bike race in Ocala.
The last time I did an endurance mountain bike race was over Labor Day weekend and I teamed up with a friend to do a duo. I am doing the same thing this time around. After doing the 24 Hours of Afton solo a few years ago I still haven’t gotten the urge to attempt it again. Turns out I actually like taking breaks between my laps, rather than having to ride constantly to secure a good result.
Rumor has it that the Santos Trail System is among the best in the nation. I still have never been on the trails despite it only being 45minutes away. If everything goes well there is a chance I will be heading down there more often. After all, mountain biking is the sport of the future.
The Doc Hollywood is next weekend.
My favorite part about the race is planning my wardrobe.
We are hoping to get over 30 riders/racers this year and we have changed up the course a tad.
