    Sandia Peak Challenge

    Hi fellow bikers what's going on. I was wondering has anyone done the Sandia Peak Challenge. I'm going to do it this year. Was wondering about the race. From what I've read their is a duathlon right? I looked on active.com and it dosen't show one, I then looked at 2 different mail in registration forms one has the duathalon on it while the other does not. Can anybody clear this up for me, if not I'll just do the mt. bike race. It will be my first mt. bike race, figured I try one, since I've done so many footraces.

    I've never done the SPC riding a bike, but rather do the 7.2 mile run. From what I understand you can do it as a duathalon, or as a team. 1 riding and 1 running. Have you done that ride yet? If you do the KOM ride it is tough (at least for me), and the altitude hurts if you're not used to it.
    You better take care of me, Lord. If you don't you're gonna have me on your hands.

    I called up the group that is putting on the SPC. They said no Duathalon this year. , So I signed up for the bike race only. It will be my first bike race ever. Taking a break from footraces. Since it is my first bike race I wasn't sure if I should go beginner or sport, I decided on sport so I'll see how that goes. I figure I usually place in the top 10 in all the foot races I do.
