    Sog Bottom / Revision

    Petite Bottom Revision
    So, after many conversations with endurance race directors in the lower 48, and of course with myself, I have decided to revise the Petite Bottom. The revision is to offer those riders (male and female) who may be unsure of their capabilities or may feel they are short on volume of training miles for the Soggy Challenge 100 distance.
    This change also includes the relaxation of the endurance resume/ credentials requirement.
    The relaxation of the credentials is only applicable to the Petite Bottom. There are no teams or ghost/riding partners allowed for this option of the Soggy Bottom.
    This option is still a very difficult course to complete and should not be underestimated.
    Riders who consider themselves sport, expert, or perhaps pro level riders are encouraged to enter. This race is not for the first year racer/rider. Each rider at this level of racing is expected to be able to take care of themselves and their bike and not become a burden to other racers because of your lack of skills or equipment.
    Each rider will be expected to be self-supported for the entire race. The rider will be required to have a support person/crew at the Copper Landing check point. The rider is the only person who is allowed to work on the bike. Each rider will be responsible for informing a race official if they (the racer) are abandoning the race. Each racer is responsible for their transport back to the start should they abandon the course. The riders meeting, bike/rider check in, helmet and bear bell requirements are still in place.
    The enforced check in cut off time to reach the Copper Landing Check Point is 3:00 PM. The departure cut off time is 3:30 PM; this is the time when the course is closed to Petite riders.

    Good call Rio! This really is a spectacular day on the bike and opening the shorter version allows more people the opportunity to experience it. It's also a nice way to ramp-up to the full Soggy 100. So... that puts the milage for the petite bottom somewhere around 80ish?

    Two of us rode the Petite Bottom course on Saturday June 29th. Plugged the GPS track into Garmin Basecamp, totals shown were 85.5 miles and 8751' of climbing.
