This year my training focus has been on the shorter USA cycling style mountain bike races. So a long event for my category is still less than 2 hours. Up until this year my focus has been more on long endurance events like the Wilmington Whiteface 100k, Leadville, VT 50 and so on. But this year, my longest ride was back in April and was just over 3 hours, so in this case I was not prepared for the Wilmington Whiteface 100K race at all. I was going to have to be careful with burning matches.
