    24hrs in the Canyon.....all most time!

    Sat morning at noon the hammer will drop, I have went over hydration and fuel a dozen times tested out new things on the bike, tested out timing on nutrition.

    Big carb and electrolyte load the day before, Yogurt and a banana for Bfast.

    The start will be a testing period to see how hard I want to go the first 6-8 hours, its supposed to be 102 up on the Canyon top and 5- 10 degrees hotter in the bottom, massive amount of SUCK!

    12.5 mile lap x 250-300 calories via Tailwind 24oz water, 24 oz water Single Nuun tab..

    Going to stop in the pit for 10 minutes every three laps to grab a quick banana and some yogurt..

    It has all worked in trials, hoping for zero mech issues.

    Ready to do this!!!

    Nice! I also like the tailwind for race fuel. I am curious about the banana & yogurt combo with the TW? Did you find it a must for longer periods of time or just preference?

    Not a must have but I have found that something solid makes me feel full.

    Just got a update that changes my plans, lol

    Because if the heat they are making the loop shorter (8.5 miles) due to safety concerns.

    Time to hit the drawing board for a few changes!
