FUEL SMARTER, GO FARTHER
Learn how Carborocket athlete, Kae Takeshita, finished strong at the Iowa Wind & Rock Event
It's a fairly regular occurrence to get emails and letters from people telling us about their positive experiences using Carborocket products, but recently we received an email that was especially impressive. Kae Takeshita, a Carborocket athlete wrote in to tell us about her experience at the Iowa Wind & Rock Event. Check it out below.
Hello Carborocket Team: Not sure if you've heard of Trans Iowa... the ultra long distance gravel that went on for about 14 years. Anyways, its successor Iowa Wind & Rock was this past weekend. About 340 miles & 27.5K feet climbing, the route won't get published, 15 min prior to the start a cue sheet to the next CP is given, no GPS file available. No outside support or neutral support, 100% on our own. 10% finisher rate in its first edition in 2019. So I went out to do it. Back safe and sound after 33 hrs 16 min. Actual riding was more like 29:27 hrs. It was the hardest thing I've done on bike!
Initial reg 120+ riders, 1 week out down to 81 riders, the morning of only 52 starters. Total 11 finished and I was the only female finisher. Added 15 miles by mistake, so a total of 355 miles for me with 27500+ feet of climbing on fresh loose gravel, wet dirt B roads, relentless hills, etc. etc. I used Carborockets and have been comparing them with other stuff I've used in the past. No doubt CR is the best tasting and I did feel it kept me fueled for a long time. But this past weekend really was the time I was completely convinced, CR 333 Half Evil truly shined. Even with my joints and everything else screaming, I had the energy to be pushing pretty hard at the end (when I realized I was cutting real close to the given 34-hr limit due to the last massive detour).
We want to give a big thank you to Kae for writing in to tell us about her experience using 333 Half Evil All-In-One Endurance Fuel and to congratulate her for being 1 of 11 total finishers and THE ONLY female finisher at the Iowa Wind & Rock Event! Congrats Kae, you crushed it! She happened to write an entire race report in detail if you want to check it out.
