Silt, way more rocks and more silt await you! You will need to be fresh and steady to avoid trouble. Dont skimp on a fresh filter before and after the section!
I ride 200+ mile days with the boys but, could not wait to bail off the course and trailride after 120 miles of this. Even my 20 year old is sore this morning!
Best of luck to all and be safe.
The last 3 or 4 days of pre-running typically hack the course up really bad. Its so bad that a lot of guys have stopped pre-running early because of how much the course changes by race day.
