Lake Khovsgol is the setting for the legendary Rat Race Mongol 100 - an event so impossibly bonkers that even we pinch ourselves sometimes we came up with it. The lake itself is reputed to harbour some of the purest water on Earth. In the winter, it freezes to over 1m thick and owing to low precipitation in the area, the ice often freezes black. this gives us the ultimate playing surface - a 100 mile ice rink that participants will traverse 'by any means' - in this case selecting bike, foot or for the ultra-adventurous, backcountry ice skates. You'll need a baselayer befitting of the -47 temperature is frequently gets down to in these parts. In fact, you're going to need a good few layers. The ubiquitous RR baselayer is the right building block for starting the job here, just as it is on most endurance settings, be it in Mongolian winter or in Scottish summer.
