To get you started here are some top Adventure Racing tips from Paul

     
  • Plan specifically for each race
  • Find out the detail of the course (distances, terrain, profile, etc) and train accordingly
  • Ensure your bike is in good condition and not likely to cause you problems
  • This includes tyre and pressure selection to suit the terrain if it is variable
  • Select suitable clothing and bag / bum bag etc for event
  • Ensure you have practiced in whatever clothing you think you might wear and that your bag does not bounce, provides quick access, etc
  • Be prepared for changed weather conditions – mentally and physically
  • Ensure footwear is well broken in before event
  • This may involve more than one pair of shoes to take account of underfoot conditions
  • Plan your food strategy appropriate to the race
  • Ensure you have sufficient food for the event and only eat bars/ gels that work for you
  • Hydrate often and early - water is usually not sufficient
  • Use hydration products that work for in training you such as NUUN, Hi Five, Deoralyte, etc
  • Expect the unexpected as it sometimes does happen
  • If you have problems along the way just deal with them quickly and get back to racing asap
