Northeast 24 hour race in NY

Post by gots_a_sol » Tue Jan 08, 2019 9:05 am

Been wanting to try this race since they started it a few years ago. Could never get enough guys to commit. This year I managed to con 3 guys that I was racing against in 2018 to join me on a 4 man team :deal:


So has anybody here done anything like it before?



Also this happened :shrug: :loveit:

I could probably be convinced to give it a shot. I wonder how much of an investment would be required to get your lights up to spec for night riding... I'm sure LEDs have made it easier.

Helmet lights / battery pack. Jared @ South Mountain Cycle was selling a bunch to the SPER guys that ran it.

That makes sense. I've got a 350 lumen headlamp for running that works really well (for that purpose, not saying I'd using it on the dirt bike).

No more sandbagging

The race is in July. Let's figure it out. I could be in as pit crew...rider if really needed. Crews are important for races like this. Somebody has to be awake.

Yea it sold out in 4 days.

I have a team entered already. Was just seeing if anybody had done anything like this before that could offer up some tips and maybe fish for substitute riders if we had someone back out :lol2:
