Signed up for the Laramie Enduro today. Missed the race last year because Nine Mile (24 Hour Nationals) was the same weekend. Gave support to Skip for the 24 Hour Nationals last year and had a blast. Kinda bummed to be missing it this year, but Laramie should be the perfect prep race for Leadville.
The race is all above 7500 feet and peaks around 10000. The terrain is very diverse contains a mixture of steep jeep trails/gravel roads, tight flowing single track, and one helluva rocky ascent to Headquarters. A couple of years ago I wanted to lay down and take a nap after that climb. Probably had a lot to do with the elevation, but the NyQuil gel caps given to me at the last aid station didn't help. Who hands out NyQuil gel caps during a race? She meant well, but come on. Read the box.
