Anyone doing this event in March? I should be good to go unless something with work messes it up.
It’s on the radar but barely…most likely will miss it but most likely attending Utah, and definitely doing San Diego.
I’m planning on going. Should be a fun early season event.
Doing VOS and TBC back to back. Adding BWR the very next weekend might kill me. In other words, I haven’t ruled it out.
Considering it. Whats the optimal tire and tire size for this race? Im a roadie with mtb roots, so very rusty skills.
I’m thinking of running the Maxxiss Reaver 40c or Maxxiss rambler 38-40c. The rambler has never failed me and is usually an easy pick for every gravel event.
Curious what others think of tire size and style treads…
Tech Tip: The balance of BWR Arizona is in traction control versus rolling resistances. With a lot of flowy, non-technical trails on the course, a tire that can bite into the loose, coarse surface is crucial. While flatting here might be less likely than in other races, having enough tire volume can help with that traction as well. We would recommend a semi-slick tire or a file tread at a width of around 40-42mm.
