Random Weekend Thoughts...

Travel = Long Drive 11-12hrs(Stevens Pt, WI to Loudonville, Ohio)

Good Company = Lee Unwin & Mark Cole

NUE Mohican 100 = Lots of time on mountain bike(8-9 hrs)

Pre-Ride = Seeing the 1st 5-10 miles before the race starts(bonus)

Aid Stations = 3 drop bags out of the 5 possible...which to choose???

Hydration = Bottle plus Camelback 50oz or CB Raceback 70oz under jersey???

Nutrition = ZYM, Hammer Gel, Clif Shot Bloks, Hammer Bars & Endurolytes

Tools = Multi-tool, Tire lever, Quicklink, 2 tubes, & Big Air C02

First Aid = EpiPen(bad bee stings last year), chamois cream & sunscreen

Bike = Specialized S-Works Epic

Team Kit = Adventure 212/Specialized

Course = Challenging with all the different mtb elements mixed together

Finish Chute Reward(motivation) = Mohawk finishers pint glass filled w/beer

Saturday Night = Dinner, post race festivities, sleep

Sunday = Long drive back to the Cheesehead state(worse than race itself)

Gotta Love It!!!
