OK. I am IN! All signed up, with the dinner and a T-Shirt too.
That shirt looks sharp. I sure wish they did a yearly jersey.

Last years finish, with Taxi777

I just got into my thick head the the Tour rolls into Sacto the day after. Wow. I'll get up Sunday and head to the sacto finish and do a short recovery ride, then try to give money to vendors at the tour (least year we spent $$ at Hincapie) and watch the winners roll in. It'll be a cycling weekend extravaganza!

I'm going to wait and see how Solvang goes before making up my mind on this one!

Signed up for this. 11 hours is the target. Heat could make that unworkable, though I just can't see how this cant be 3 hours less ride time than DMD.

Racing through a double or a century is fun sometimes.
Then sometimes it is more like chugging a good beer.
Kind of a waste, better when sipped.

LOL - I'll let my hr monitor tell me how fast to go. At least it should be faster than Solvang!

I was out for 16 hours and change the last two Davis Doubles.
Hemet was 15:38
Solvang was 14:20

My only "plan" is to start really early and finish before dark. I'd like to ride a Davis with temps under 200 degrees. That might speed thing sup a bit.

I'm still undecided about this. Last year's heat did me in, and I'm not thrilled about suffering through triple digit heat and 16% climbs with no shade. Even though I'm in better shape than last year, Davis has me psychologically freaked out.

I'v been seeing your rides on facebook. Sounds like you're doing a ton of climbing. I think the heat got you last time, not the ride. I'm praying it won't be so flippin' hot this year.

It's an El Nino year so who knows what the heat will be like. Not sure I'll be able to handle a double by May 15th though.

Does that make hot hot hot more likely, or less likely?

I haven't done back to back doubles in a few years, we'll see just how crazy I am.

I predict a 78F day with a slight 5-8 mph south wind. The north wind is the one that brings the heat.
