So I haven’t been in this situation before as I typically avoid cold races, especially with descents. But I’ve been talked into this one…Anyway our race starts at 9:45am and it’s forecasted to be around 40F (for a SoCal native, this is beyond cold for me) at the start, and by the time we finish it’ll be about 50F.
The race starts with a 20-25 minute climb, then 10 minute fast descent with some flat after, and we do it three times. I’m going to get hot and sweaty on the climb, but I’ll freeze on the descent. What do I wear? Wool base layer and arm and leg warmers only? Vest? Neck warmer? Heavier long fingered gloves?
