Could I do the ski leg with tele skis or would that be a bad decision? And the bike -- I have a mountain bike, but do more road biking lately -- what's the course like? Cursory answers would be great, I don't expect too much detail. I just want to make sure this is an event that's right for me. Thanks!
this event is right for you!
Ski leg: tele skis are fine. I would use kick wax instead of skins for the uphill so that you don't have to stop.
Bike Leg: On county roads but the roads will not have seen any maintenance yet. Mountain Bike is the weapon of choice, but there are no super technical sections.
Kayak leg: Class II with a boat chute past a dam. Mellow but definitely shallow and bony in April.
Hope you sign up and come down!
