Congratulations to everyone.
141 cyclists completed the Devil Mountain Double on April 28, 2018 under difficult windy conditions.
To complete the California Triple Crown Stage Race is a HUGE Accomplishment in cycling!!
Even though an alternative course had to be ridden due to road closures, the signature climbs of Mt. Diablo and Mt. Hamilton
were still included making for an extremely tough day on the bike.
150 cyclists registered for the Terrible Two, 139 started and 109 completed this
extremely difficult course.
Ride Organizer Bill Oetinger wrote: “A user-friendly Terrible Two for 2018: That “user-friendly” header may seem like
a sick joke
to some of the participants in the Terrible Two on June 16. No Terrible Two is easy or friendly. But it’s meant as a relative term:
compared to some of the nastier editions of the event, this one was fairly benign. Most significantly, the weather was nice.
Official temperatures for Saturday around the course ranged from below 60° on the coast to above 80° in Cloverdale, the
mid-point of the long ride. If there was anything to complain about, it might be that it was a little too chilly after twilight.
A fair bit of shivering was seen among the riders at the finish, once their engines started to cool down after their big efforts.”
The third and final stage of the 2018 California Triple Crown Stage Race will be the Mt. Tam Double on August 4, 2018.
We tip our helmets to all of those who have completed these first two stages of this most difficult 2018 Stage Race.
Everyone who completes all three stages will be recognized at the 2018 California Triple Crown Awards Breakfast to be held on 9/30/18,
the day after the Knoxville Fall Classic Double. The 3 winners in each division will be awarded the coveted California Triple Crown Stage Race Plaques.
