I saw sprinter (Ric and Anna) and 508Jaguar (Jeff and Jo) riding back up the Salsberry climb on the way back to Furnace Creek. I was riding my fixie and having a tough time of it. I was dead last as it was my first attempt at a double on the fixie. I DNF'd at Badwater after riding 131 miles and climbing 7900'. I had done all the hard work (that 9 mile descent was tough!). I guess I shouldn't feel too bad as it was longest ride on my 44x17 gear. Next time, I'll be on a tandem!
