Men will be "reduced" this weekend in La Crosse as they battle the coulees of the Mississippi River Valley

The 12 Hours WEMS race near the beautiful river town of La Crosse, Wisconsin commences this upcoming Saturday @ 8:00 a.m. At last year's event, my good buddy Tim Ek had a break-out race while the Amateur was reduced to a groveling, smallish dysfunctional organism incapable of rationality. The course involves climbing, climbing, and then substantial climbs which represents a challenge in determining a proper gear ratio.


  1. I was going but now knee issues have me on rest for the remainder of this week and possibly next.

  2. How rocky is the course? I was thinking rigid to lighten the bike for the climbs but not sure if it will be to rough then. I'm racing the 6 hour.
