Get'em in early, save some money...you'll be needing it for the following physical therapy.

Perry Mountain 24 Hour Challenge

Did it in 2010 when it was stopped for a couple hours for insane rain. Awesome experience. I would do it again but have fallen off the training wagon. ;). June heat in Alabama will wring you out. Lol. The Perry Mountain boys Put on a great event. If you are thinking about it but haven't tried it. Do it! You won't forget it and have great stories for a long time.

I've done this race a few times. Once on my KLR......rode 90 miles to race, changed tires, 24 hours later, repeat and ride home.

I just read that the Moto-X track will NOT be in this years loop. Formerly Noah's MX, it's now under new ownership, and is undergoing renovations.

It was a good spectator spot, I used it as a break area...kept moving, but took it easy around the track.

Allen, I put in two laps on the course today, this year's trail will be a little more open than what you have seen in the past few years.a few sketchy down hill segments, but overall a great layout.plenty of single track, most of it flows very well. For cast is for rain off and on for the next two weeks, so dust should not be a problem so far not looking like a mud fest. With a bit less than 2 weeks to go, you should probably start training now. See you then!

I see you are ironmanning it? Whats the strategy? Do you end up getting sleep, or what?
Do you ride for atank of gas and rest, or how does that work?

I'm going to try and do the one up here in NY thats based off of this one, so I'll use any advice you have
