An Announcement and a Challenge to the Spinner Crowd!

I have a proposal for the Spinner Saturday crowd. I plan on doing the Lotoja in 2007. For those of you that have never seen their site, it's a pretty tough race. 200+ miles in a day, regardless of weather. This race is NOT for the faint of heart! The course is a road race from Logan, Utah to Jackson, Wyoming.

My proposal is this.........
We need the Spinner Saturday crowd well represented with riders for the Lotoja. We have about 18 months to train for this event, so do you think a bunch of recreational type weekend warriors can sufficiently train and commit to finish this race? This is my challenge to the Spinner Saturday crowd, ride the 2007 Lotoja with me. I'm already working on my hills, we have a couple of good nasty hills here for me to run repetitive climb training on. I'm not asking for a lifetime commitment here, and 18 months is plenty of time to both train for and work out time off issues and travel arrangements for those of us who live a long way away from the start and finish line, like I do! If you want to do this, chime in! If not, no worries! I won't think any less of you!

200 mile roadrace. Thats like what......a 50 mile Mtb course.

Just kidding roadies.

I haven't had a chance to really look yet, but I don't think you would need over a year to train for it. You did a 76 mile loop last week? I think you could be ready in a few months.

If only I wasn't all the way over here on the "right side".
