I was reading your ways to save time in Leadville here http://www.ridingleadville.com/2012/03/shaving-hour-off-your-leadville-time.html and found it very informative. My question is primarily around pacing to meet the time cutoffs in Leadville. The goal is 12 hours but my question is your thoughts on racing in upper HR zone 3 and 4 versus knowing this is an endurance event and racing zone 2 early. I know this depends a lot on how fast one can go in zone 2 but is racing in zone 4 a setup for failure / bonking / gastro problems with food absorption? I would love to hear your general thoughts on HR zones and how you feel regarding the LV100 and HR zones.
