After months of training finally some races in which you can test your fitness and improved technique against the formidable foe of the Nakkertrak!

.Quality racing does not just magically happen.

You must be prepared to give your best effort.

You best effort is worth much more when you own the whole process

Think about the course

What techniques and where to best employ them.

What effort is required for each section and distance?

(This evening I will be posting to the web site sample race plans)

Think about your sleep, hydration, nutrition and plan to complete your other responsibilities.

Your pre-race packing (water, food, extra clothing, etc)
