I got in Dirty Kanza 200 this year. I’ve done plenty of centuries but the time has never gone beyond 6 hours. I know hydration and fueling is huge part of success (I.e. @Nate_Pearson at Leadville). I’m trying to figure out the bottle/hydration pack equipment. So my questions are
- should I use a hydration backpack? If so recommendations? I’ve never used one
- should I add a tri rig to my seat for two extra bottles and strap them down so they don’t eject?
- 3 big bottles…my gravel bike has a place for a third bottle holder but it’s low and will likely get covered in mud and dust before I get to it
- other options?
I think that’s it for now. Thanks in advance for the help!
