Well, I signed up for my first hard endure. I've been wanting to switch from flat track to endure/hard endure for a while now. I'm glad I finally bit the bullet and entered my first event.

Has anyone run the KOM before?

Have any advice other than train and ride as much as possible?

Good luck. There are a couple of threads here in Racing for KoM including some inmates (RobertoGatos) that have raced both editions IIRC.

Probably due to the fact that it's my first and I'm in for a big surprise. Haha! Honestly, I'm going to have fun with it and just try to finish, even better if I can do it on time.

Of the people I know who have raced this event, none of them used the term "fun" to describe it!!

If my schedule allows, I hope I can make it down there to practice with these guys. I need to get as much seat time as possible between now and the race.
