I had a great time at the 24 Hours in the Old Pueblo, and that’s most certainly an understatement. Albeit my first experience at the event (and second mountain bike endurance race ever), I was fortunate enough to learn some preparatory tricks from two, 24HOP seasoned individuals:
- My husband who’s raced it more than 10 times and snagged a spot on the Solo category podium
- My wonderful friend Aaron, who’s been a 24HOP maniac 13 times in all different categories.
Rad pit crew, to say the least! But there was an ulterior motive – a photo essay for Singletrakcs.com (sweeeeet). To construct the piece, I had the privilege of working with Scott Cotter, a Singletracks colleague and brains behind Rolling Home Media. He wandered around behind the scenes taking colorful photography while I covered the trail, and together we composed one cool story in the crappiest weather imaginable. We LOVE how it turned out!
