Camelbak Racebak, be a pain to refill, but gives you 2l on yourself, plus bottles on the bike
Scott MTB Marathons?
or a RaceFace Stash Tank

Yes Scott MTB Marathons. I might just get a Camebak Hydrobak – 160g empty, leaves pockets free as ill need to be wearing Team Colours. On sale everywhere. £40 ish.
Or i could cut the frayed torn bits of my Octane as i cant use the pocket anyway. That still leaves the larger internal pocket for tool and tube, 2l and sternum pockets for gels. £0.Posted 1 year ago
I agree with tomh above.
I did pretty much the full series of those marathons in 2011 using a camelbak approach, and with that experience I decided not to do it again!
2x750ml bottles and carry sachets of your favourite energy drink. You’ll only need to stop at 1 feed station – will cost you 2 mins tops. Carrying 2-3kg extra weight on your back from the start of the race will cost you more than that in fatigue.Posted 1 year ago
In a you’re happily bimbling along a fire road and then arrow points left straight down a vertical scree slope which you surf down with saddle thumping you in ribs trying to steer just enough to avoid the 3 people that have fallen off in front of you.
The problem is stuff like that only popped up a couple of times per course – totally not worth factoring into bike choice, but not really fun to ride with a steep HA and skinny tyres.Posted 1 year ago
