I know it is a little ways out but let's get the buzz going on this one.
Sunday March 25, 2007 we will preview the Breathless Agony Century course. It is 112 miles and 12,000 feet of climbing. The tough part is you climb 11,000 feet in the first 75 miles. Yes there is 1,000 feet of gain in the last 40 miles. Once you hit Onyx Summit at 8443 feet "it's all downhill from there". The first pass is on a dirt road, Jack Rabbit Trail, then the second pass is Oak Glen. There is a descent after the first two climbs. But then next two passes, Angelus Oaks and Onyx Summit really hurt because they go up and up-- no downhill in between the climbs. The climb up to Onyx Summit from Rest Stop #2 is almost 30 miles of continous climbing.
Ok so who wants to do some serious climbing? Want to see the elevation graph?
