63 Riders started the First Stage on the Mulholland Double
42 Riders finished the First Stage on the extremely difficult Mulholland Double

Of those, only 13 went on and finished the Second Stage on the Oceanside Double.
The weather conditions on the Oceanside Double were brutally tough with a gail force headwind heading into Borrego Springs
causing riders to walk their bikes up Montezuma, and lots of wind, rain, and sub-45 degree temperatures after Montezuma.

Of those, only 10 went on and finished the Third Stage on the Terrible Two.
Bill Oetinger wrote about the Terrible Two: "Just how hot was it? The official highs were 101° in Cloverdale and Sebastopol and 102° in Healdsburg.
Add a few degrees for the real-world, real-feel up on the exposed walls on Skaggs Springs after lunch and you have a classic TT crock pot:
a slow cooker that turned many a rider into the human equivalent of a well-done pot roast.
The bake-oven weather turned a small field of starters (96 entered and 89 actual starters) into an even smaller field of finishers.
Only 29 riders made it in by the old standard cut-off of 10:00 PM (32%), earning their coveted “I Did It!” t-shirts.
Another 12 made it in before 11 for CTC credit, for a full-field finishing rate of only 46%.
That ranks right up there as one of the nastiest Terrible Twos on record.
Anyone who finished this one can stand very proud and anyone who didn’t finish it has no reason to hang their head. It was a very tough day."

To complete the California Triple Crown Stage Race is a HUGE Accomplishment in cycling!!

Rules:
To be in the Tandem Division, the rider has to ride each of the 3 Double Centuries on a tandem with the same person.
To be in the Recumbent Division, the rider has to ride each of the 3 Double Centuries on a Recumbent bike.
