I'm doing the Trans Rockies Challenge
(a 5-day mountain bike stage race) in August and am looking for any tips and tricks people may have for doing something like this.

Specifically, what kinds of gotchas should I be looking out for, what pieces of gear will make me more comfortable, and so on.
(I'll be riding an Ellsworth Truth with SRAM X.0 bits if that matters)
I'm in pretty good shape (regularly finish on the podium in 24-hour - and longer - adventure races) but have never done anything this long before and am not sure what to expect.
