Once again, Presidents’ Day Weekend has come and gone- and with it another 24 Hours in the Old Pueblo. This year’s event was the biggest yet, with entry capped at 1,850 racers, to say nothing of the hundreds of friends, family, volunteers, and spectators who briefly made up the population of 24 Hour Town, 45 minutes North of Tucson, AZ.
As hoped, the event (and pressure to live up to the potential of our Project 24 race bike) kept me training right up until January’s nasty cold snap. As promised by several of our Duelling Forecasts, race weekend saw reasonable temperatures turn cooler, accompanied by 40mph winds and periods of rain. As always, a mellow, friendly vibe dominated and most folks were happy to even be riding during what always seems like the coldest month. The Epic Rides folks put on a great show, with plenty of cozy camping, friendly on-course volunteers, a great course, and reasonable prices. Hit the jump to find out how things went on our end!
