I have read many articles on the Canadian Death Race but this is one of the best I've come across. It's descriptive, detailed, and captures the audience right from the beginning.
I love the part where the author describes the typical death racer at the end of the race and how he can barely lift his legs over a small curb. I know that feel all to well.
The author's description of each leg is "ok" but a little off. In my book, "Conquering The Canadian Death Race", I attempt to specifically lay out each leg in detail and an appropriate strategy for getting through each one.
During the last section of the article, I really like that the author highlights the fact that elite racers come every year and fail to make it to the finish line. This race is unlike most races in that the racer has to figure out how to balance both the speed and distance elements together. If you go out to fast, you risk overexertion and if you go out to slow, you risk missing the cutoffs.
