24 hour races are great- but why share the excitement by doing it on a team.

Only ever done one and never again. I slept for 2 days afterwards and couldn't sit down for a week.

^ big bear is a mountain city out here in southern, ca.

Has a couple of ski resorts etc... I was curious too b/c right now they're buried in snow and they're only letting people who live there up the road atleast that was the story last week.

I know a team that actually did this for the Hoodoo 500 (road bike race). I have a feeling the event this thread is about has a determined relay point.

yea i guess since stopping and breaks is allowed, I could travel lite, carrying water and energy food and bare minimum just to get me back to the rally point.

If/when i find and decide to do one of these, there will be a thread on it =P lol

nah, we just keep checking. I do daily. I want to get in the 24 hours of Moab before it closes. I do not think I can do the 9 Mile event. Would like to do Big Bear and Moab though

Looks like an awesome race. I would be interested, but I lack skills and will likely be out of the country at the moment.
