Finishing is all I am looking for here...
Your Tigger is ideal. IMO. You can run a Mefo rear and a TKC up front. Maybe take a spare front too. Rainier will haul our spares and panniers.
You don't need exceptional riding skills to do well. Its the navigation and time keeping that gets you results. I did seat-of-pants before, but this time I'm going to use an ICO computer.
For me the ride was the most important thing, with the competition aspect spicing it up. After two earlier events, this time I'd like to be more competitive.
