The ever so useful UB prep guide has received an update to account for the Tahoe UB as well as some other lessons learned from racing the UB for the last four years.

Now, we prefer you guys get the black and red ruck to represent our team colors, but if you get anything else we'll pretend we never saw you press the "add to cart" button :)

Another race weekend has gone by with more and more of our crazy teammates running multiple laps while carrying heavy stuff. It's gotten to the point where a teammate podium finish has become so commonplace that we fail to recognize it every week!
