EP 508: Front v. Back of the Pack with Richard Kresser & Will Fortin

What are the differences when you are racing at the front of the pack v. back? Richard Kresser and Will Fortin join us to help us understand. Richard finished 1st in the 2016 Bigfoot 200 and then turned around the next month and swept the Tahoe 200 course with good friend Will Fortin. We discuss each experience and which he enjoyed more. Will adds an additional perspective as an aid station captain at Bigfoot where they have to stay open for over 50 hours!
