And how would I prepare for such an event? Aside from the obvious (riding more). I have one month. Any suggestions are appreciated. I already have super-low gearing. The longest ride I did in the last few months was ~12 hours and 13,600 feet. I'll try to do a 12-14 hour ride and a night ride between now and the event.
Some specific things I'm interested in:
- Long breaks. If the objective is to get as much climbing as possible in 24 hrs, do I get there by trying to keep going for the entire 24 hrs with only short breaks up to 10-15 minutes, or should I plan to have one or two 1-hour rest stops?
- I expect that my attempt will end with the mother of all muscle bonks, and I want to postpone that moment as much as possible. For that purpose, I'm thinking to go low-carb until the event. Yea or nay?
