Did the two person team. Finished in just over 7 days.
Still dont have complete feeling in my toes, had massive swelling in both legs for a month, both knees gave me big trouble and still do (that traces back to doing Mt Washington on a 39x26 though), and I ate junk food constantly for 6 months even though I knew better. I was racing as a 2 before I did it. Ive always been an "all day is ok" type of rider though. I used to ride to crits, do the crit, and ride home for some massive days. That helped. Its mostly mental, then preventing injuries, then riding hard. We almost won that year and wish we would have known going into it that we would be in that situation. hindsight.
I used my regular race bike with multiple wheel and helmet options. I did not add aero bars. My position is naturally low.
In the end, at least for me, it did more harm than good. Its massively expensive and insane. Over 200 miles every day for 7 days. Stupid.
Id do it again and win this time.
