Ok I thought about going down to Texas to do a 100k race, but with the same distance race in my backyard who needs to go that far south. This is the Triple D slated for January 19th, a 60 mile round trip race from Dubuque to Dyersville, Iowa and back. Everything you need to know about this race is located at Lance Andre's site, so go check it out.
Some pics from Lance's site, this should be very interesting in deed, now the question single or geared, lots of snow means single, but big tail winds on the return warrants some gears, decisions, decisions. I guess I could always ski it.
I read that Lance was actually pushing his bike down some of the hills, ugh that would be a first for me. I better start looking for some studded 29er tires, I bet that will be easy to find.
