what do other people think about not riding to the end of the 24 hour time priod, but doing well in the results. For example, someone could do well by hammering out laps in 16 or 18 hours, then not riding anymore. They might place well, but I don't think they finished the race. It's called the 24 hours of moab, not the "however many hours you feel like riding of Moab".

I think we should spend more time discussing every single facet of 24 hour racing. I need to spend months to prepare fully for this thing, just to see if I'll crap out at lap 7 or lap 9.

Last year my stomach shutdown and I couldn’t eat after my first lap. On my morning lap I had to us the porta johns at the start / finish and their in was a pile of clues. I saw a bike laying alongside the trail a couple of miles in. Wondering to another racer about the bike a voice came from the woods - I wasn’t the only one with the Hershey Squirts. When I heard people talking about what the roots were covered with I thought it was just an expression.
My diet was routine and before my first lap my girlfriend gave me crap for being tooooo relaxed. What causes this @#$%^&*shut down and what can I do about it? I want to be like professor T. who eats greasy hash and sausage after a 4:00 AM lap! HELP!

Have specific topics about each race for general information such as:
1. is it better to camp or get a room.
2. how far is the campsite and rooms from the transition area.
3. what food is available
4. hot showers?

What should be done to prevent a repeat of last year's Trek/Fisher drafting tactics? I think it would be interesting to see how fast the race could be run using such a team tactic, but only if it was understood by all teams that this is the style of competition. Unfortunately, teams like Sobe don't have a corporate counterpart to provide drafting assistance. The only parralel I can draw is pitting an individual time trialist against a team - no contest.

What kind of tires work??? Round ones of course. Actually, in years past semi-slicks were the bomb, but this year the sand is worse than ever. You are going to need something that will handle deep sand on the majority of the course. You may end up hiking as much as you get to at Snowshoe.

I'm sure it is based on class size, but why does there have to be such a great disparity in the prize money for male versus female. If I was listening correctly at the awards section, the male solo winner won about $2300 and the female only $300. Did that even cover her entry fee? Am I the only one who noticed or even cares?

I'm looking for other females to pre-ride the course with on Friday. I'm on a open team, and I am currently the only female. I'm not as technical a rider as the rest of my team and don't want to mess up their pre-ride. (I'm in fairly good physical shape - I just haven't mtn biked too much) Plus, I would like to work on technical sections of the course - re-riding anything intimidating or fun. (The rest of my team will probably bomb the course and be finished in an hour) My idea of a pre-ride is to get to know the course, face the challenges and laugh. If you're interested in a similiar pre-ride, drop me an email and maybe we can schedule something.
