    Has any one done Epic 8-hour? Lap time question.

    Has any one done the Epic 8 (Hardwoodhills)? Basically we will have a team of 5 taking turns doing laps. We are all novice weekend warrior type rider's. We will train for the event but it's all our first race and are doing it for fun.

    My question is what can we expect the average lap time to be on a 10 km loop? or what would be a slow time and what would be a decent time for a non racer.

    Not such an easy question to answer without knowing much about your group, however, in the 2014 Summer 8 hr epic, there were 14 Club/Corporate 5/6 person teams. If for the sake of argument we placed your team with a goal of coming in 10th in that category, we can see the average lap time for that team was 41m51s, for 11 laps.
    Not a bad target to shoot for

    of course all this is dependent on weather conditions. Hope this helps
    (yes, I have done several 8hrs, and 3 or 4 at Hardwood)
