Ultra-distance athlete Christie Tracy explains ultra-distance racing like putting together a puzzle, where each piece only fits with planning, research, and experimenting.

“I wear a jersey/bib combo for direct follow Ultra Races because temperatures will frequently change as I ride up and over mountains and into desert valleys and from day into night. Layering, as well as storing things in pockets, is essential.”
