  • Comments: This is great race and a real challenge for anyone who struggles up at altitude. Even tho my time was approx 45 min slower than my norm for this distance I still enjoyed it. You don't get this sort of terrain back near home (London) Great volunteers, spectators and participants. Its also just in a beautiful location and as I climbed slowly on my bike I took in some awesome views. I Would do it again ( faster?) if I was in Tahoe at the right time next year.

  • Overall course based on my ability: Too hard

  • Comments: I had a great time vacationing with Julie in the Tahoe area so, of course, the race was special. But there were some easy fixes to the problems i encountered. One more drink table and 2 course marshalls would have made all the difference. And I could have trained a bit better during the days i was in Tahoe, but that was my decision. I'm getting better at this stuff, but I'm still waiting for the one "perfect" race-were all the legs are solid, I'm healthy, and can finally see what I'm capable of.

  • Comments: Great race. Would have liked at least one more aid station on the run - maybe around the first mile. Timing results were messed up. None of my splits were correct, no T times and no bike or run totals.

  • Comments: The race was well organized, and I never felt rushed or worried that I didn't know where the course was going. Great race briefing and plenty of aid stations, plus free Sierra Nevada at the finish!

  • Comments: Not very organized but the course made it fun and extremely challenging and that was enough. The food was good and jumping into the lake afterwards is a definite must!!

  • Comments: good race, well organized, but hard. not only are you at 6000' elevation, but the bike course it tough! it takes you up to 7200', then down to 5800', then back up again. it's technical, too. all in all i have found that Olys are really not my cup of tea. i'm made for long distance. plus, i don't like the competitive nature of the short races - the jockeying for position during the bike segment, the pile-ups during the transition - no more!
