Race Equipment Checklist for Mountain Bike Racers
Here's a checklist of what you should have before leaving for a race.
I remember my first mountain bike race. Whenever I showed up, and was just about to change into my cycling outfit, I realized that I hadn't packed my clothes! Just kidding. But the reason I remembered them is that I had a checklist of everything I would need. I don't want you to forget anything, so I decided to put my list online.
You should print this out and hang it by your bike stuff so you can check everything off as it goes in your car. If you're preparing for your first race, or your eighty-first, better safe than sorry.
Water bottle (filled)
