    Butte 100

    Has anyone here ever done it? I'm look for the description of the trails. Should I bring my hardtail or FS?

    Thanks

    This race was brutal. 16,000 ft of climbing. Manged 6th overall my power meter and rear wheel gave up on me but still limped in.

    I just missed 10th overall this year but still took the bottom step in open/cat 3.

    It was so much easier this year than last thanks to the cooler weather. Last year it was in the low 90s going into the second half of the race.

    I don’t have much to compare to since I am only in my second year of racing... That said, the other more widely known race I did this year—the Whiskey 50 — would probably be somewhere around 25-30% as hard as the Butte 100 in my opinion.

    I will be looking for something different next year, maybe Brec Epic...

    Sorry I missed this, could have provided some pre-race info.

    As you guys discovered, it's difficult and beautiful!
    Whining is not a strategy.
