24hours of adrenalin Canmore 2011

Where to start, that is always the big Q. With only 2 more sleeps before one of my biggest challenges of the racing season I still fighting a cold and trying to get as many things organized as I can. Thinking and planning about food, hydration, pacing, etc... luckily my wife "pit manager" is getting a bunch of things organized for me (love you bella). We will be heading out to Canmore Friday noon and set up our trailer to be all rested Saturday morning. I am planning on pre-riding with my buddy solo Steve and Andy and see the new changes they made to the course this year.
With this been my 5th time participating in a 24hours event, but only my 2nd time solo I am starting to get nervous and anxious at the same time. I am not very good at tapering and with a week doing nothing I am feeling pretty anxious and desperate to go out and hammer the trails !!
I washed my bikes last night and oiled them pretty well, good thing about single speed is that you don't have to worry to much about gears, cables, changes, etc...
I selected a gear ratio of 32/20 and I hope that my legs still alive after 24hours. The course is 17.3kms long with over 430mts of elevation gain... the goal AS MANY LAPS AS I CAN IN 24 HOURS OF PURE ADRENALIN.
