Dirty Century

Post by spookyload on Sat Mar 23, 2013 12:32 am

So I am hitting it hard tomorrow. Have gotten in great mileage on the road this month due to being TDY for the whole month. A local group here is doing their version of a MTB Marathon. It is the Dirty Century. Doesn't look too daunting as I am opting out of the 100 mile version and doing the 100k. pretty flat in all honesty, just an altitude issue at for a bit. Starts at 5700' and peaks out at 6700'. Check it out. Will be rocking the KMC kit of course. The new stuff is damn nice.

Be sure and post pics. 100k is no joke, though I guess not having to many hills will help.

4:46 with 2600' of climbing in 100k. Headwind on the way out was 10-15 mph. Tail wind on the way back was 25-35 mph. I think I was actually blown up the last hill (that's what she said). Hardest part today was water. It was a self-supported ride, so I had to bring a camelback. Not being used to wearing one made the shoulders a little tired.
