Scotti Lechuga’s Arkansas High Country Race Packlist (Video)

Scotti Lechuga just released a video outlining the Arkansas High Country Race packlist used during her record-setting ride at this year’s event. Watch it here…

Scotti Lechuga (@scottilechuga) was this year’s overall winner of the Arkansas High Country Race, a 1,021-mile event featuring over 80,000 ft of climbing through the Ouachita and Ozark National Forests. The AHRC is touted as one of the toughest fully self-supported gravel races in the US, so planning and packing for it is no small feat. Scotti Lechuga finished this year’s event in a record-setting time of 5 days, 10 hours, and 49 minutes, pushing through heavy rain and drivetrain-killing mud, and setting a new women’s fastest known time in the process. Afterwards, Scotti put together a video breaking down her race kit, including everything from bike specs to clothing choices. Watch the full 17-minute video below.
