I’m registered to do my first road race, Iron Horse Bicycle Classic in Durango, CO. I’m wondering about aid stations. The website states that riders must be self-sufficient but there are four official support stations throughout the course. Since this is a race, should I carry enough water and try not to stop at these aid stations? Or do groups stop and top off? I’m wondering what I should be prepared to carry and what to expect. Any insight or suggestions is appreciated!
This is a 47 mile course with 5700 feet of elevation gain.
