Black Fly Challenge (40 mile MTB race) - Shy Flirt - 05-20-2010 01:35 AM

I heard about a 40 mile mountain bike race last week during a group run. It sounded intriguing, so I signed up. It's on June 12th and is named the Black Fly Challenge and is in the Adirondacks. It goes right by the finish area for the Wakely Dam Ultra. So I have actually run on and driven some of the course which is dirt roads at that point.

Here is the web site:

According to the elevation chart, there is 2237 feet of elevation gain. Should be fun!

In anticipation I added drop bar ends to my mountain bike. Will look at reinstalling my clip on aerobars. They were nice in my last mountain bike race two years ago. I will play with the set up, and see what I like.
