Craig Evans and I started working together this year, and it's been a great season so far...
"Craig Evans will be racing with the No. 1 on his bike plate for the first time in his career and carries the burden that comes with it proudly. After battling through injuries last year, Evans is having a breakthrough season and is second overall in the points standings (points leader Dan Hugo from South Africa will not be racing in this one)."
Best of luck tomorrow Craig!
PS - Notice the power meter on his mountain bike! KEY TO SUCCESS!

There’s a saying about racing off-road, and how complex it is. To be a good off-road triathlete, you must master the art of off-road racing. And when it comes to the complexities of nutrition logistics, there is definitely an art that must be mastered.
Off-road nutrition is much more of a logistical mystery than a simple road triathlon, where you can use a bento box, carry a bar of some type or use gel packets. Off-road, you can’t take your hands off the bars to reach for a package, tear it open, and eat it anytime. Try doing that on a volcano in Maui, or on the twisty, winding roots of a single track trail and you’ll soon be licking fresh wounds.
