Now that I've had some time to digest it the idea seems interesting but with laps it becomes too easy to bail after one. Personally 1 was enough last year but I would hope to be in good enough shape to knock out 2. We'll see. The organizers might be cursing themselves when they're still out at 10:00 pm waiting for those last 2 riders to stagger in.
I think this puts you into the pure enduro category. The 50k was probably a little too light to be considered one by ride424.com standards. But this should make the list. Plus it's a tough course so there you go. It seems a lot of the enduros are popping up lately, and existing races are going longer. The Michaux series has gone to 50 mile formats and they might possibly be doing a 100 this year. Then there's the Horrible Hundred in NY state. And of course the 24 HOA, the Wilderness 101, and the Shenendoah 100 and you're really starting to get a solid enduro presence in these here parts.
Well, I'll be interested to see how it all plays out. Depending on how the season falls, you may actually start to get some bigger names to this race, which would be cool. You had Harlan Price last year even though he DNF'ed. This will certainly help make it more of a national event.
