Scott 24 Hour 2014 Race Wrap Up #TwentyFailHour

What more can I say?  My debut 24 hour solo ended with me laying in a defeated, exhausted, dehydrated and distraught mess.  To say I am disappointed with the result is an understatement. As I don’t have much riding to report on for this Race Wrap Up, I’m going to quote some numbers before I get…

Scott 24 Hour Update – The Night Before!

After a few days of being quite sick with a stomach bug and something resembling a head cold, things are starting to look up for me.  I haven’t explosively purged my stomach contents in a little over 24 hours. At this point there is no turning back for me.  Too much time, money and effort…
