    Was considering doing this on my 29er. Good choice or should I stick with my cross bike (which is setup 1x10, 40 x 12-27 and tubular tires)?

    Normally I would recommend a CX bike but the opening climb to Savage is just mean. A very strong cyclist friend of mine Sonni Dyer of Studio 7 Multisports did a reacent pre-ride of the course and had 34-32, he said he used every bit of it and wished for a 34-34 to be able to go "faster". So in this situation I expect your 29er has lower gearing and would work great.
    Actually several racers will probably be using mtb for the ride.
