    Interested, but not committed yet. I'm wondering how my brain will react to seeing the bottom of Stunt road at mile eighty something... All I know is, if I commit, I got dibs on last place

    I'm in.

    What about M.E.? Happytime is doing it, so can you. Besides this is the first step on your way to your KOM jersey.

    Ok, I registered, there doesn't seem to be any conflicts, although I doubt I'll do BA.

    I haven't registered yet, but I am totally committed . . . or should be soon. However, I plan to ride Mulholland and Heartbreak as doubles. I'm pretty sure I can do this and get both CA Triple Crown and KOM points.

    Am I wrong?

    I've never ridden either Mulholland or Heartbreak, so those will be big (Huge?) challenges. I've ridden BA in 2005 and 2006, so no real worries there.

    Plus, I'm riding Butterfield and Spring Solvang doubles (both of which I've done before) as training for Mulholland.

    Rick,

    The ride counts for both TC and KOM points, and where the century riders have certain times to make the checkpoints the only time you have to worry about is finishing within the double century time limits.

    What about me?

    I'm still considering it and I have until January to register. But I'm not sandbagging. If I ride it, I'm beating all your butts up the hill and laughing at you when you arrive.

    Okay....all of you EXCEPT Brandy.

    I'll consider it, but I will probably doing Sea Otter the following weekend and my thoughts are that it may be unwise...

    Are you riding the century up there or racing? The century is incredible and I recommend it to anyone. It goes through Carmel Valley and the hills there are stunning.
