    I’m very interested in doing this race. However I’m from a background of triathlon (28 years), not mountain bike racing. Will the course be very technical? If it’s being compared to Leadville that would lead me to believe that perhaps it’s not too extreme.

    I’ve never been to your ranch so I have no way of knowing.

    Thanks, I left a similar question on your facebook page…

      Paul,

      There will be single track through sections of the course, but nothing too extreme. It’s going to be a fun race and look forward to having you out!

    So what’s the format for the 2-man? Do we trade laps or split the distance in the middle? How long is the course? Thanks.

    Comparing this race to Leadville…..really? 1900 people starting at 10,000 ft with a 10 mile climb up to Columbine Mine at 12,700 ft (only one of three major climbs) compared to 250 people racing a 2 loop course at near sea-level. Hhhmmmmm……
    Great to have this race in TX, but I wouldn’t compare anything to Leadville but Leadville. There’s a reason for the 40% DNF ratio.

      Dave,

      There’s no doubt Leadville or Breckenridge are tough races, but the Reveille Peak 100 is designed to be tough with the Texas heat and singletrack. This is also a fundraiser for the Texas High School MTB League which we’re extremely excited to be a part of. We appreciate the comment and look forward to having you at the race.

      Elevation profile should be ready by next weekend. Look forward to seeing you at the race or pre riding the course!

          Yeah , there’s not much info on the race course . Isn’t Leadville 100 miles ? Don’t get how its similar .

        • Jamie

          Drew,

          We had a few last minute changes to the course. The elevation profile will be up shortly.

          Thanks,

    If you are riding as a team (with a partner), do you race your portion all at one time, or do you split it up in relay fashion, like the marathon racing series?

    • Donna
      September 16, 2011 | 5:57 am

      One teammate at a time, alternate laps

        Looks like the course has changed to (4) loops.

    I have to be honest with you guys, your statement “The only race in Texas similar to the famed Leadville 100″ is misleading and simply not accurate. It makes me question the quality of the race you’re promoting. Also with 1 week to go and we still don’t have a course profile? I can hardly help support a race with these things in the way. I would first lose the Leadville comparison then get on top of providing maps and profiles as soon as you start promoting your race. I wish you the best and I hope my comments are of help. Let me know if I can do anything to help as I value having quality races in CenTex for my athletes.

    Sincerely,
    Joe Sulak

      Joe,

      We truly appreciate your feedback and honest opinion. Although this is a 100k race, the elevation gain is approximately 7200ft. If the course was 100 miles, the race would be shy 2000 feet of Leadville. We had a lot of last minute changes to the route being that it was too technical (yes, too technical!) which was unfortunately the delay in getting our map and elevation profile to the racers.

      We look forward to a phenomenal turnout and couldn’t be happier with the amount of money being raised to benefit the Texas HS MTB League.

      Thanks again for your feedback and look forward to seeing you at the ranch.

      Jamie

    Is there going to be a tech zone and a feed zone?? Figuring out what to bring which will probably be everything.

    • Kathy
      September 20, 2011 | 2:27 pm

      Craig,
      Yes, the tech and feed zone will be at the end of each 15.5 mile loop as your come through the start/finish line. We will have neutral support set up with Water and Pure Sport drink mix, as well as a neutral mechanic from Sun & Ski. You are also allowed to have your own support area and use your own crew and fuel that you provide. Due to the beast of this race, we may also add and aid station out on the short paved road section, or at the Pole gates, so that you will pass it twice. Bear with us, this is the first year for this race and I am sure there will be tweaks we make here and there to make it better as we approach race day.

    Can we pre ride on Saturday ?

    • Donna
      September 21, 2011 | 2:15 pm

      No pre-riding on Saturday because the adventure racers will be on the course for a 2 hr and a 12 hour event. But, you can come out tomorrow and Friday to pre-ride.

    i’m a bit confused — is there one 50km loop that racers complete twice? or one 15.5 mile loop that racers complete four times?

    • Jamie
      September 21, 2011 | 12:48 pm

      Mojo,

      The course will consist of 4 15.5 mile loops. Look forward to seeing you at the race!

    If anyone is in need of a second rider for two-man team or interest in forming a two-man or coed team, I’m game. I’m up for racing Cat 1/2 and if all the stars align, could turn a pretty respectful lap. Speaking of Leadville, been there, got the buckle. :) Sorry for late solicitation, but rode the course Saturday and it is going to be a blast!
