A 10 Day Stage Race around the Michigan UP just popped up on the calendar. Starts 8/15/19 so 28 weeks from now.
I had a goal for the year of doing something epic and stupid and this checks those boxes with a big red X.
10 Stages - ranging from 90 to 130 miles and 1,400 to 5,745ft of climbing.
Looking at some past records I’ve done exactly 2.8 centuries (don’t ask about the .8, I’m still bitter) and while I’ve gotten a few races in the 3,750+ft range, nothing over 4k besides zwift. Oh and these records were all a few years back soooooo - lets do this?
If I were to do such a stupid thing - what would a good plan be?
I’m about 2 weeks into SSB-Mid-II. I planned on doing my slew of track, crits, with a sprinkling of MTB races but I’m willing to cut way way back on those to get ready for this.
