    Leesburg Bakers Dozen Race pics from Saturday

    A few of you already know I did a thirteen hour endurance race on Saturday in the doubles category. My team places 10th, and they just sent us around links to a bunch of pics.

    So live for today,
    Tomorrow never comes.
    Die young, die young,
    Can't you see the writing in the air?
    Die young, gonna die young,
    Someone stopped the fair.

    Pity that first photographer didn't get a shot of you - those pictures are awesome!

    Damn! How long was the course? Looks pretty, but I'd be dead after the first 30 minutes

    That's 12 hrs and 55 minutes longer than I'd last.

    That looks like a pretty intense workout.

    I didn't have to ride the full thirteen hours. My doubles partner and I would switch off every two laps. So, two on and two off of a nine mile course, with our final count being twelve laps. Still, I was exhausted at the end and slept for twelve hours that night.

    Man that looks like it was a good time! Those trails look nice - nice and wide - not worrying about hitting a tree if you get off the singletrack.

    So I'm trying to understand this - let me know if my math is right:

    -You do two laps at a time. Each lap is 9 miles. So each "turn" is 18 miles?

    -The both of you do 12 laps. So you had to do 6, at 9 miles each, so 54 miles total in less than a day? On a MTB? Holy f**k.

    Looking at those pictures - I saw that same Salsa fatbike at a local shop - the one that blends from bright pink to bright orange. Being a surveyor I thought that should be my ideal bike (since I use those colors all the time).
