REV 3 Adventure Race - Wyoming

I was just looking at races to fill next years schedule and came upon this on the Rev 3 website.The Cowboy Tough Adventure Race.  Check this out..3.5 days of adventure racing through beautiful Wyoming.  It includes paddling, mountain biking, trekking and other various skills. It starts on July 18 and goes through the July 21st.

I know..I already have Rev 3 Cedar Point as my "A" race next year..but an adventure race!! It is also a team event (2 or 4 person) which would be awesome.  However, I would have to find somebody dumb enough to do it with me.  That person would also need to be able to stand the sight and sound of me for 3.5 that leaves my wife out.  I'm wondering what Jen Small is doing that weekend?  And I would have to get a ton of mountain bike riding in..something I have forgotten how to do since I started this triathlon stuff.

Doesn't this look much more fun then being in aero position?

Of course, if I did find someone to sign up with me the pressure on me to train would be that much greater since I would not want to let them down...and I would have a reason to buy the new 29er I have been looking at.

Gary Fisher Superfly..woo hoo!!
I already know that Rev 3 puts on a great race, Wyoming is a very drivable distance for us, and the date is perfect..being about 7 weeks before the Full Rev in September.  I'm going to have to think about this. 

An adventure race is definitely on my bucket list of things to do.  And I only have a limited amount of time to do one.  Yep..I am already wearing bifocals as of last year and my depth perception is totally gone.  Mountain biking takes on a whole new feel when you have no clue how far the drop off in front of you actually is. 

If any of my friends out there wants to do this race..even if it is without me..let me know and maybe I could help set you up with transportation, lodging, support etc..

Hope everyone is having a safe halloween weekend..  And stay away from that candy!!! I don't know which I love more..kit kats, almond joy or peanut butter cups.
