So which race do you choose? - Well ask a few questions of yourself first
Have you raced your Mountain Bike off road before? Do you have people who will be able to keep you and your bike moving? Do you have high quality lights with a long 'burn time' (how long they will last before needed recharging). Can you perform well with little or no sleep? What preparation will you do? Will it freak you out being alone in the dark woods at night...
There are lots of other questions but this event is meant to be endurable and enjoyable so if you have lots of No answers to those questions then you should really be thinking about getting some like minded souls together to form a team or a pair, this will make the weekend more sociable and will aid your ability to proove that you spent the weekend taking part in a 24 hour mountain bike race when you go back to work on the Monday.
