The 2017 California Triple Crown Stage Race is in the books.

63 Riders started the First Stage on the Mulholland Double and only 42 finished the extremely difficult Double Century with over 18,000 Feet of Climbing!!

Of those, only 13 went on and were able to finish the Second Stage on the Oceanside Double where the weather conditions 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 afterwards.

Of those 13, only 10 went on and finished the Third Stage on the Terrible Two. Bill Oetinger wrote: "Just how hot was it? The official highs were 101 Degrees in Cloverdale and Sebastopol and 102 Degrees 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."

After completing the three brutally tough stages of the 2017 California Triple Crown Stage Race, the following riders are on the podiums:
2017 Overall Division:
1-Mark Christopherson
2-Kirsten McDaniel
