We encountered a couple issues along the trail - one of our riders, Don Daly (riding a Foundry Valmont with Clement Xplor Ush 32 mm tubeless with 55 psi front/60 psi rear), crashed around mile 14 on the trail and had to quit around 165-mile mark due to a knee injury. Another rider, Michael Allison, had to convert to single speed when his cable snapped, which affected our elapsed time.
Kelly Skinner supported us and provided great support at our five pre-determined rest stops.
Kent Woermann is a personal trainer that can get anyone ready to ride the Katy Trail in one day (training takes longer than one day!), if they so choose - he has experienced it now and knows what it takes to get the job done
- anyone can contact him here https://www.moveupcoaching.com/ if they want to tackle this awesome experience! Kent also did a nice write-up on our experience under his Facebook timeline here: https://www.facebook.com/kwoermann
