Reply To: 12hr race on a 4 man team – when to switch?


Everybody is different, I guess I would see what everyone in your group wants to do and their style of riding. If it were me I would rather go for as many laps as I could all at once and be done. Like you said ride for three hours and be done for the day. For me the first lap would be at a decent pace (slow to some) and the other two would be pretty quick. For some reason it takes me a lap to get everything going before I really start cranking. If I go all out on the first lap I find myself getting burned out to quickly and not really flowing well with the course. Hope that makes sense.

Good luck!!
