24 Hours in the Old Pueblo
This past Presidents’ Day weekend, racers put their legs to the test at 24 Hours in the Old Pueblo. This race, presented by Tucson Medical Center, celebrated its 17th year, turning the Sonoran Desert into an all-night and all-day race course. Home base for 24 Hours in the Old Pueblo has been called “24 Hour Town” due to the large group of campers piled into one area. The event provides racers, friends and families the chance to kick back and relax with great food, a large bike expo, and live music from 91.3 KXCI. Thanks to the sunny and warm weather, over 4000 people attended the event and close to 1800 racers lined up at the gate. The race offered a Le Mans-style start, requiring racers to sprint to the bike racks and find their bikes. Collectively, the riders at 24 Hours in the Old Pueblo clocked over 7,000 laps and well over 110,000 miles. If you think you’re tough enough to race 24 hours, then check out this event next year when it comes around again, at www.epicrides.com.
