But the event was again about the spirit of camping and mountain biking with over 450 campers on Saturday night. The evening was mild, but the daytime riding was hot! Ice cold Powerade was served at the transition area and lube station. During the night the course were quieter and took a different feel. Sunday morning you could see hundreds of wheels have covered the route. It was very dusty, and you could see on the legs of participants, who has done the most laps...
All in all a fun weekend was had by all on & off the track.
The twist is that the next event is only in 2022, giving you plenty of time to train or mentally prepare!
Let’s see if Dane will be back to defend his title of King of the 24Hour.
