he's got some great information on his blog about packing, eating, and training for the event. he's very meticulous about his preparation, and i'm sure he can be a wealth of information for anyone considering a similar event. chris has tapped into a lot of different resources for information, gear, and support. some of them are:
ghisallo sports, carousel design works, dan schmatz, jay petervery, jeff kerkove, stefan griebel, and the big one, the lance armstrong foundation, livestrong.
