Team RecoverBetter - We're going racing!

This weekend is the first mountain bike race of the season for Team RecoverBetter. We'll be racing the first round of the 2010 National Ultra Endurance Calendar at Santos Trails in Belleview, Florida. The 12hrs of Santos race has been a mainstay of my race schedule for the past few years - its always a great time. In years past, we've raced as a team (2008), solo for 6hrs (2009), and now Tony and I will be competing in the 12 Hour SOLO Elite class. I'm sure the comp is going to be pretty tough, since this race is now part of the National series. It will be interesting to see how things play out - early season races have never been my strength.

Here's a pic from 2008 when we placed 3rd Pro/Expert 12hr Team: After last year's 6hr race - I've decided to give it a go for the full 12 hours. I have no real expectations on results other than I just want to get in a LONG day of riding. A big accomplishment for me will be simply to keep riding all day until the cutoff point. This winter's training has been spotty, so I'm looking at this race as a 'kick-off' for the 2010 season. Here are a few of the other races that Team RecoverBetter will be competing at:
  • BFAST Duathlon - Nocatee, FL - March 21, 2010
  • Cohutta 100 MTB Race- TN - April 24th, 2010
  • Dirt, Sweat, & Gears 12hr MTB Race- TN - May 15th, 2010
  • BFAST Sprint Triathlon - Ponte Vedra Beach, FL - June 2010
  • Off-Road Assault on Mt. Mitchell - NC - July 25th, 2010
  • Fools Gold 100 MTB Race - N. GA - August 21, 2010
  • 8hrs of Labor MTB Race - Alachua, FL - Labor Day, 2010

So keep an eye out for us at the races - we'll usually be carrying some inventory with us - so stop by if you need anything.
