Well, how did it turn out?
The desert got me at RAW 2019. Extreme heat, even inland was just too much and we ended our RAW at 341 miles just beyond Hope (seriously, Hope AZ) in Salome AZ. We are planning on regrouping and doing Hoodoo 500 on August 24, a beautiful, and much easier race logistically, then being back in Oceanside in 2020. Edge Integrative Wellness is already back on board and will help develop a strategy for getting this heat-intolerant rider through the desert and all the way to Durango.
Reset the clock!
