    Nice plan Brian and I hope it works for you as I will also be on a similar GU fueled plan with a similar finish time. Last year your Roctane products helped me to an 8:18 finish and I hope this year will be similar, or slightly faster. My target calories per hour is 280 and I plan on drinking all my nutrition. I use the Roctane drinks and add Roctane gels to get up to the 280 cal/hr.

    Good luck and have fun!

    Great job at Leadville Brian with another sub-9 hour finish. I did an 8:18 last year and was hoping to equal or better that time, but it didn’t happen for me as I ended with an 8:30. I used the GU products exclusively during the race and drank all my nutrition. I’m not sure why our times were not faster than last year, but a combination of things including the new trail in to Pipeline, the wind, and the huge number of riders all contributed I believe to slightly slower times for most people. Maybe next year we’ll both be faster!

    By the way, that was my 19th finish so next year I hope to get the really big, 2,000 mile buckle.
    Great job again on the big buckle finish!
