    Default The Rift - Iceland

    The Rift

    This is on my radar next year and registration is fast approaching. It's a shot in the dark, but did anyone on here participate this year? Or know someone who did? I'm just looking for some gear and logistics input.

    Or if you've been to Iceland and are familiar with the terrain, what would be your tire choice? Speed and durability are a priority.

    Thanks!

    I almost made it happen this year but couldnít quite figure out logistics with the family. Iíve read a few race reports that seemed positive enough and am leaning towards a quick solo trip to do it next year.
    Iíve been to Iceland once before and it seems like logistics on the ground are entirely reasonable.

    Re gear choice. I read more than once that the volcanic soil composition is slow compared to what we consider gravel but not really sure how that could specifically be mitigated by tire choice etc.
