Bonjour,

Une épreuve à ne pas manquer. George va faire partie de l’organisation Cool. Ce raid n’est plus sanctionné par la fédération mais on va sûrement avoir beaucoup de fun. Allons y en nombre !!! Moi, je ne veux pas rater ça.

===============================================

Charles, the organizer of the Raid wants to get back to basics with this race, without the constraints of the Federation. There will be a private insurance to replace the coverage that the Federation usually offers.
It will be more of a home grown type of event to get back to what a Raid should be. FUN! To make it work he needs the help of volunteers. If you do not race and would like to be part of the success of this event, and at the same time ensuring that there will always be a great race close to Montreal, e-mail him via the web site in Bruno’s post or PM him (veloraid)
This could be a great opportunity for the members without race experience to find out what it’s all about!
See you there!

I think I would like to work towards this event as a goal. I’ve never competed in any biking event but would like to start and the 30km Maitre Sport (I’m 35 years old) looks like a good first start.

How do I train for something like this?

Thanks

Santiago,

All you really have to do is be able to stay on your bike for roughly three hours  For an event like this one, it does’nt matter if you finish first or last, you’ll have plenty of fun!!

My recommandation would be that you get used to climbing, as this is where most people suffer most…

Daniel

Just ride as often as you can and you will be fine.
Learn how to keep yourself properly fueled. Eat well a couple of hours before the race and get used to eating those gels during the race.

You are going to have a great time!

Thanks everyone. I’m looking forward to this. I hope to put in as much tim on the bike.

I have pretty good endurance but I know that endurance in one sport doesn’t translate well into another. The reason from what I understand is because our muscles “learn” how to be efficient for a given sport but different sports mean different muscles.

Georges, what do you mean by eating the gels?

Power gels, like power bars but easier to digest. Little packets of energy with the texture of toothpaste.

Technically, Powerbar(personnally I prefer PowerBar Harvest) is absorbed much slowly than Powergel so you can eat them on the long run. On the other hand, Powergel is like a boost of energy which will be aborb in 10 minutes and last for about 45 min. The problem is, if you want to keep to boost of energy with Powergel, you have to take them every 45 min during a race otherwise, you’ll have a sugar crash. On a 3 hours race or even more, it’s a lot of Powergel you have to take!!! I find it more useful in the last third of a ride/race, anyway you should have enough fuel in your body for the first part of the race (with proper training and meal before a race).

In both cases, you have to eat them with water.

Hope this help
Pat

Also, there’s usually plenty of food stations along the route (4 last year for the longer course, i think), with water, bananas etc…..

Thanks for all the info. I’ve never done any sport that required so much energy management. This will be interesting.

Bump! Cet événement a besoin d’un peu de visibilité… On aimerais avoir une belle représention du Club cette année, surtout que quelques membres du Club y mettent des efforts à l’organisation.

Since I did good last time and really don’t feel like doing the 75km again (I know, I’m a wuss!  )… I might take on the 35km race again this year…

Welcome to Le Raid Outback, Santiago. I’m sure you’ll do fine and have a great time. If you want a little bit of a head start come out on one of the initial exploration rides to familiarize yourself with the course. I’ll start posting them very soon.

Thanks a lot. That sounds like a great idea.
