My first Double. Temps over 100. 8000+ climbing. YIKES!
I'm alive, and I finished it.
There's a reason I didn't update the 50+ jersey list this weekend. :eek::eek:
For all the gory details, see my blog, or visit the NorCal forum and look at photos and stories from Taxi777 (another 50+er) and others.

Congrats for finishing; it looks HOT!...and painful. Great job for getting through that...
Congratulations Curtis. I've ridden many single centuries, some of them were tough, but nothing comes close to what you've just accomplished. Here's to you and your mates.:beer:
That's one heck of a ride Curtis, congratulations :beer:

Congratulations on doing the ride, finishing the ride and not dying in the heat. RR and I were running errands in Vacaville Saturday and at 4:00 pm the temperature was 106. Yesterday the temps were much lower in Napa but got up close to 100 coming back over the mountains. Nothing like Saturday though.
You and Taxi are my heros.
Great job in just finishing this one!!
Congrats x2!:thumb: You are the MAN.:giver:

Nicely done. Even the pros in this year's Giro d'Italia might have protested over this one.
