This years single goal...

Reminder to visit TripleDRace for information on the upcoming Triple D Winter Race (Bike or Ski or Run).

This years training schedule is based around just one race, while i'll be racing all the lower 48 snow races as before (see below), there will be no tapper for them, they will be "Training/Testing" events for me. The single goal for the 2010/2011 winter season is the Iditarod Trail Invitational.

This weekend’s race near Lake Superior (Tuscobia Ultra) at 150 miles will be a good test of my new equipment and bike. I finished 2nd last year in this race when it was only 75 miles.

Then Mid Jan is the Triple D Race in Dubuque, a short sprint event (65 miles) that is always a battle among some of the local speed demons.

Only two weeks after Triple D is the grand daddy of the lower 48 snow races the Arrowhead Ultra 135, a race that will routinely temps in the -20dF range and one year dropped to -40dF. This will be my 4th year for both the Arrowhead and Triple D races and can say that important lessons are still being learned.

Then we have the main event... its seems so far away yet, I'm thinking about it like it is tomorrow!
