I know it was a risk. Some LOVE it, others not so much. I mostly just wanted to try vittoria's new Graphene 2 compound and their race casing, which only comes in in tan wall.

Yeay, but the tan walls? Really? (I need to send in pics of my Evo)

Sounds like you haven’t ridden one, and don’t ever plan too. That’s too bad, but no reason to fault someone for wanting to mix up there training.

I have done my fair share of marathons and Olympic Xc races. And adding an enduro bike, road bike, fat bike, and now ebike has only made me more confident and faster up and down. -just because you ride with a motor doesn’t mean you’re lazy. Just have different priorities.

I have been using a similar strategy for myself and have only noticed improvements from using a variety of bikes and riding styles. I mainly race Xc and out several hours a week in it, but then use ebike so I don’t have to ride a trainer or road bike for recovery. It awesome to ride steep and fun trails and stay in z2.

yup. I will be riding the lightest bike I can for the race. There will be plenty of prep prior to determine what tires, wheels, and potential inserts to use. Like you say, the race is almost entirely fitness based. I could do many things to acquire fitness, but...more

Ebikes are awesome. I have 3 bikes, an XC, Enduro, and an ebike. I love them all. I race my two bikes, and use the ebike for recovery and light training days. If you hate them, I feel bad for you, there is nothing but fun coming from them.
