12 Hours of Sundance

Come challenge the clock. The way this event works is that each rider or team competes against the clock and each other to see who can ride the most laps in a 12-hour period.

A good plan and endurance are key factors in an event like this. Knowing when to take in some food and when to catch a short rest play into a rider’s or team’s strategy and usually dictate a participant’s ultimate success in the event
