Nankman Wins One and Done 24 hours of Brady’s Run
Over the Labor Day weekend, Liv Ambassador traveled to the western aspect of her home state of Pennsylvania for the One and Done 24 Hours of Brady's Run 24 Hour race taking the top spot on the podium for the solo women.
This race was advertised as being one of the most difficult 24 hour race courses out there putting riders physical and mental fortitude to the ultimate test. The course was primarily technical single track with substantial climbs that never gave riders a rest.
A conservative start was Nankman's plan, making sure to save energy and her legs for the tough racing ahead. She put to use her technical skills on the challenging course to stay smooth and strong, and the efficiency of the Pique helped save her effort on the climbs. During the night laps she stayed consistent and smooth to keep up her pace and made sure to concentrate on nutrition and hydration to sustain her during this long and challenging endurance event. As the sun rose, she felt energized and strong for the last few laps.
Nankman noted, "This was by far the most challenging 24 hour race I have ever done. It tested me both mentally and physically in a way no other 24 hour race has, but gratefully, everything went as planned. Nutrition and hydration were on point, and my Liv bike and gear performed flawlessly. My training and preparation paid off with an amazing ride, and I enjoyed my time out there on the bike".
Nankman looks forward to her next race, Bearscat 50 mile marathon, September 23, Hewitt, NJ.
