He carried three spare inner tubes, but had five flat tires. For John Stamstad, ultramarathon cyclist, it was not a particularly joyous time in the Alaskan wilderness. Stamstad was competing in February's Iditasport, a 190-mile mountain bike race across the frozen tundra. He eventually finished third, despite the flats. As a rookie Iditasport competitor, Stamstad was unaware that most cold-weather riders glue their tires to the rims to prevent the tire from slipping and tearing the tube.

Mission Viejo mountain biker Mike Lee is a newcomer to round-the-clock endurance races. He pulled his first all-nighter on a bike at last weekend's 24 Hours of Adrenalin in Idyllwild. "I hung drywall for 24 hours once," Lee said, "that wasn't a lot of fun." But Lee had a blast in Idyllwild, leading a four-man team to victory in the open men's division at the first North American Outdoor Racing Bike Assn. national championship in the event.
