    stellar ride, I am not surprised that you are trashed, I would say you are in excellent shape, btw strava documents what is possible, thx for sharing, you got a KOM, 19.1 MPH and 7 minutes of stop time, 200+ miles, 9k+ of climbing, is this your toughest ride of the year ? it does not get much tougher for a single day ride

    Of the year? Are you kidding? Toughest ever

  7. Pat McGroin

    Dang dude.

    @menso certainly beyond what I would ever attempt , 19.1 MPH with climbing and distance is great, for a one day event this might be the toughest, I follow some people that do multi day efforts like San Diego to San Francisco on a three day weekend minimal sleep and lots of cycling https://www.strava.com/activities/999751959 https://www.strava.com/activities/1011997779

    Super job Menso!!!!

  14. Menso de Jong

    96% dirt. I was in second but was cramping super hard and didn't give a shit anymore and got passed in the last 100 feet.

    What is the nutrition/hydration like for an event like this?

  17. Menso de Jong

    3 aid stations only. I started with 3 bottles, and then picked up two fresh bottles plus a 70 oz camelbak refill at each aid station. I ate 10 or so clif/mojo bars, 10ish packages of shot bloks, and 10ish gels. In the first three hours I mostly had bars and then progressed to the bloks and gels. Also, I didn't have anything caffeinated until five hours in, so the caffeine really worked when I needed it.

    Amazing work Menso, sounds you got into the right breakaway. Putting 30min into Ted King. Animal.

  20. Menso de Jong

    Ted flatted a few times, as did many other contenders. That's half the race at Kanza.
