And cheers to Eric Bunce for taking the overall win (see below for the race and rec results, full results can also be found here: https://ultrasignup.com/results_event.aspx?did=35167). Eric is our Wasatch Citizen Series race coordinator i.e. the guy who sets up and takes down the Tuesday night race courses. If you see him, congratulate him and thank him for setting the course. And better yet, show your appreciation by helping him set-up and/or take down the courses! Interested? Sign up here: https://www.timetosignup.com/utahskimo/view/46047. Any and all are welcome-no experience necessary, all that’s needed is you, your enthusiasm and your skis/skins.

Time and location TBD
Should you carb load before a big event or avoid them all together? Do gels really doing anything other than leave a gooey mess everywhere? How much and how often should you eat during a long event? What is the optimal hamburger/beer ratio for maximizing recovery?
