Yukon 24 Hours of Light just might be the only 24-hour race not re­quir­ing a bike light; it goes so far as to for­bid any form of il­lu­mi­na­tion on your rig. In Canada’s land of the mid­night sun, you won’t need one. But you’ll have to pack for just about any weather. Or­ga­niz­ers warn that con­di­tions can go from a hot sum­mer’s day to snow, and back again. The course will be 12.5 km, will have 227 m of el­e­va­tion and will cou­ple fast and flowy sin­gle­track sec­tions with ar­eas of dou­ble­track, per­fect for pass­ing.
