Found a link to a pretty cool article written by a local Atlanta guy who recently won the inaugural Trans North Georgia mountain bike race.
Trek7k has mentioned the race in here a couple of times but for those of you still unfamiliar, it was a 350 mile MTB race from the South Carolina/Georgia state line to the Georgia/Alabama state line.
The unmarked and unsupported course weaved through North Georgia over singletrack, ATV trails, doubletrack, forest roads, and a little bit of pavement and included 56,000 ft of climbing.
Eddie O’Dea won the race in 2 days 7 hours and 33 minutes.
Eddie ended up writing down his story and Florida Racing Magazine ened up picking up and posting the entire write up.
It’s a pretty good read!
Check it out.
(The article is on pages 40-48.)

Sounds like fun, but a little too epic for me!

That was EPIC for sure. Eddie is the man. I don’t know how those people do that kind of stuff…it’s unbelievable.
I had a great time following the race, I listed to all the racer call ins on MTBCast! It was very cool.
I’d like to try it one year…it’d be a 4 or 5 day thing (at best) for me tho hahaha!

Wow…that would take me much longer to complete. Can’t imagine what one would do to train for that…

I got tired just reading the article and had to take a break mid-way. 😃 Thanks for sharing. That was a good read.
