The registration page usually indicates how much.

How long does it usually take to get sold out?

I'm IN, with a capital-I and a capital-N! I'm in! I'm in! I got locked out last year, but now I'm in, and registerrrred!
(High-fives self).

Going to be a busy month with Mount Laguna, then Breathless Agony, THEN l'Etape!

It was only 80 bucks, but Active.com probably took a few more.

I decided against registering for this. I'm actually having problems committing to ANY events right now. The only event we've registered for is Alta Alpina and Hell's Gate. And Alta Alpina might be thrown out the window because my cousin just announced her wedding is on the same weekend...

Yes, and they also signed you up for a couple magazine subscriptions that you can't cancel. Active sucks.

I'm not looking forward to the drive from the bay area but I signed up again.

As long as you don't rush through when registering, you can opt out of the magazine subscriptions. I noticed those too, and unchecked a few boxes.
I was pretty bummed when they had this event the same day as l'Etape last year, but it's going to be a fun cluster of weekends in late Apr/early May!

I'm in. Better get training....

BTW I was wondering: What is the youngest age someone has completed the KOM challenge?

Do you like climbing? Are you ok at altitude?
On the last climb you can always turn back if you're cooked.

I signed up for Breathless Agony again, not sure how many this makes for me; five or six maybe. It is a bit of a challenge, for sure, but quite do-able.

For me, the real fun of BA is the spirit of the ride, i.e. the music and super positive folks at the checkpoints, the Grim Reaper encouraging the cyclists up the climbs, the full-on Party at the finish at Onyx Summit, the burrito dinner at the park afterwards . . . it's all good fun.

Yup figured it's better to register and try rather than regretting and waiting for next year. I do like achievement after climbing and getting GOOD workout. Altitude, I am not sure. Wish I had tried the Tour de bear last year. I do ride daily bases with my 30+ miles commute. Do semi structured training concentrating on base fitness at this point (no group ride, race, etc... just not willing to commit the time at this point until my kids grow older). Each day it is 1500-2000ft climbing depending on route. When my leg is fine on Saturday and it is for endurance ride, I would either do quick 2 hour ride with 3000ft or so climb or 3.5 hour ride with almost no climbing. I am in process of losing weight as well, etc.
I do train with power and I am guessing if I dial it with low enough sustainable power (and HR), I shouldn't burn myself out too early. I am not in to set course record or personal record, etc... Just in for experience at this point and goal would be to be able to finish the ride within time allowed.
Maybe can get some pointers from you guys when time draws near. Never done public century, etc so I probably will start having some questions
And it happens to be close to home century

I would suggest you register and ride another century befroe this one. There are plenty to choose from, the easiest I can think of is Tour de Palm Springs. That way you get the distance in your legs. The next think is to get the climbing in them, that will take a bit longer. 10K ft is a lot.

FYI, I have a thread for KOM training.

Don't worry about the altititude. It's barely even noticeable until you get over 6500 feet. Just stay hydrated, and bring an aspirin if you start to feel a little yucky.
It's when you get over 11,000 feet that your lips & fingernails turn blue from lack of oxygen, and everything becomes profoundly hilarious. And what's Onyx's elevation? Only 8,000?

Onyx is 8400, plenty high enough to bother some people, some can feel 5000.
