    Rasputitsa 2017

    Anybody in for Rasputitsa this year? Any veterans with words of wisdom? Looks like fun, but I don't really have a good sense of what to expect. Seems like most guys run cross or gravel bikes, I'll be on a 29er 'cause that's what I do.

    It is only as serious as you take it. You will find the riders that ride like you do. 29er works great. Go for fast/narrow tires with a little extra air. This year conditions should be pretty quick and firm with a few exceptions. Cyberia will be snow. Most likely a mealy mess after a few hundred pass. Great support and atmosphere. Big steady climbs and long descents. Just settle in on the ups. Keep track of food and hydration as the race will be just long enough that it will matter. Field is bigger this year than ever!

    Looks awesome! Mixed conditions at higher elevations should make for fun and challenging race. Still brushing off cobwebs from this winter. Good luck to all ready to suffer in a few days!
