    Durango 100?

    Are there any SS'ers or gearies planning on doing the Durango mtb 100 or any 100 mile races? I'm planning on doing it on a rigid SS and I'm looking for people to start doing long mtb rides with.

    I'm doing the Leadville Trail 100 on my Full Suspension, but I'm always up for folks
    to do long rides with. Surprising, now that I do long rides, how many MTBers think a
    two-hour ride is long.

    Tomrrow, for example, I'm planning a 3-hour ride at Horsetooth (I'm hoping I won't
    be burned out frrom going to String Cheese tonight in Denver).

    If anyone has done the Durango 100 I would be curious to hear of your experience. Looking at the website from last year's results, it seems only a handful of people registered, and only Elite riders made it the full 100 miles. That leaves little hope for an amateur like myself

    A friend of mine, Rob Lucas, from the Springs, has done it. He liked it, but
    he's an animal. Really.

    He's done 24-hour solo races and the Lt100 many times. He said he just barely
    finished the D100, and that the support for the D100 was kind of non-existant. But
    he thought that was kind of cool (whereas I may not think it was so cute).

    If you do it, be prepared for little support/organization, and a really hard ride.

    I'd suggest Leadville or Vail if you want a more beginner-friendly (if there is such a
    thing) 100.
