This was a race I decided to do one day after my oly tri. I was definitely tired, but how can you pass up ridding single track! The race was very well organized with four official water stops and one PBR beer stop! They passed out tons of awards and prizes, and had free beer and food at the end. The ride was probably 85% single track, and just a little two track roads, defeinitely worth traveling for if you get the chance.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing, would have been stronger had I not raced the day before, but that's what made it fun.

Event comments:

Very good race, if you are anywhere close next year you should really check this one out. Look at it as an aided mountain bike ride in SD!

Course: Fifty miles of the best single track that South Dakota has to offer. Very good course, it's amazing the work that must have went into linking up all of the trails to make this race happen.

Woohoo! So proud of you!  That's an awesome accomplishment!  50 miles on a mountain bike in single track is NO JOKE.   And people think they are cool doing the Big Mick...hah!
