anybody ride it last year? what gear did you run? any recommendations?
I did not ride it this year but am this year. I plan to take my 29er SS. I am considering switching from a 32/19 to a 32/18 but I was considering doing that before this race.
Regardless, the climbs appear to be short and of medium steapness at most.

FYI for next year, I ran 36x18 and felt it was too easy. I was 5 minutes off 2nd place, so I think 36x17 would have made the difference.
