Bruce Lin, TPC’s Magazine editor, recently interviewed our co-worker Seth Holmes abound his 6d 10hrs 11min time during the Colorado Trail Race this year. The CTR is one of the most grueling courses and Seth’s experience might be useful to anyone interested in this feat.
“Imagine waking up at 3 am, wet and cold, and getting on your bike to ride for 18 hours. Now imagine doing that for multiple days in a row. That’s what it takes to conquer the Colorado Trail Race (CTR). At over 500 miles with more than 50,000 feet of elevation gain, CTR is a true beast. Every year, dozens of riders attempt to tame it. CTR has no entry fee, no registration, no support, and no prize money. It’s just you against the clock, the elements, the trail, and yourself. As a bikepacking race, you carry all your own gear and sleep in the wilderness. The winner will complete it in about four days. Most riders will need one to two weeks. Many don’t make it to the finish.”
