Sebring ... less than 10 feet per mile

I registered for the 24 hour non-drafting event and have absolutely no idea how I’ll do. 

My training terrain averages 90 feet of climbing per mile and more. I doubt that I could do that for 24 hours. No. I’m SURE that I couldn’t do that for 24 hours. 

Allan Duhm racked up 425 miles on the 24 hour event a few years ago. An amazing feat especially after breaking a leg on the Sebring track just the year before. That’s an average speed of more than 16 mph. 

I don’t think climbing prowess translates into flatland prowess. Stamina and endurance will likely be the key. Not to mention nutrition, hydration, mechanical preparedness, clothing... and the absolutely essential: good lighting for the black dark twisty conditions of the race course at night.

    I would love to do the Sebring 12 Hour race. But can't make it this year. Good luck Dan.
