That’s it boys and girls, ladies and gentlemen, the 2010 Furnace Creek 508 roster is out. I made the list. 2010 will be my fifth consecutive and final solo 508. There are approximately 13 weeks remaining for me and the other 91 solo racers to get ready for the “toughest 48 hours in sport”. That’s right 92 solo racers this year! A good solid field is represented with the 2009 508 champion, Chris “Ram” Ragsdale returning to defend his title.
I am currently in my mountain training phase. For the months of June and July and parts of August, depending how my numbers look, I do a lot of work climbing the mountains of southern California. I then wean myself off the mountains and begin to do higher intensity, albeit, shorter rides through the end of August and September. Things are going well for me and I feel strong for this time of year. My power numbers look good and I have maintained my weight at 150lbs or 68 kg.
This weekend brings more climbing and suffering in the Sierras. Stay tuned for another weekend of EPIC TRAINING!
