Cross posting from racing forum. Put it here as some of you have been talking about recent race experiences.
The Dead Dog Classic is back for its 20th running on 28 and 29 June in Laramie, Wyoming. Three stages in two days. RR up to 86 miles and 6100 ft of climbing on Saturday (topping out at 10800 ft). Course record by Jonathan Baker of Vitamin Cottage is 3:44:39. Crit and 10 mile out and back TT on Sunday. TT averages 8600 ft elevation and the course record is by Jonathan Garcia of BMC at 20:44.58
Baker will return this year to defend his course record and two time Pro 1,2, GC winner, Kevin Nicol will also be racing.
ACA sanctioned and this year the FIAC National Stage Race Championships. We average about 400 racers per year; about 85% from the Colorado front range. Fully supported by volunteers; three feed zones on RR, neutral wheel support by ROL wheels.
See all of the details at www.deaddogclassic.com . Two hours drive time from Denver. So come up and see what you can do at altitude (every inch of racing is above 7200 ft).
