From Los Angeles, Orange County:

I-5 North to CA14 North to US395 North. This puts you just outside of Ridgecrest, and the Subway at the Shell Station in Pearsonville. Continue North through Lone Pine and Independence to Big Pine. After you go through town, turn right on CA168. There is a campground right on the corner of US395 and CA168, a huge US flag, signs to the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest, and “THE” Big Pine. Start line is 2.4 miles down CA168, at the corner of Death Valley Road. NO PARKING on CA168, but you may park anywhere along Death Valley Road.

From San Bernardino, San Diego:

I-15 North to US395 North. Continue North through Johannesburg, Pearsonville, Lone Pine and Independence to Big Pine. After you go through town, turn right on CA168.

Darn near perfect conditions in every way today.  HOT on DV…of course…but nice everywhere, and even a nice tailwind to push folks home.  \

ZERO crashes, nothing more serious than a few overheated riders.

More tomorrow!

…THIS WEEKEND!!

 

So it should be seasonably warm on DV Rd. this weekend,like in the 80s.  Classic Stage 1 conditions.  Maybe cool in the morning, maybe a little breeze.

As always, it might be hot, or snowing, or somewhere in between, for Stage 2.

Hope you will join us!

 

 

Tuttle Creek Road Race Notes

1) Race Categories will be combined (as needed) at the close of Online Registration, which is Thursday night at midnight.

If YOU want to decide which categories are going to have enough racers to run, you do that by signing up online.

2) Registration for morning races is 7:00 – 8:30.
Registration for afternoon races is 11:00 – 11:30.

3) We have a CHP Sargeant and the guy from Inyo County Roads Dept. (who signs our permits) BOTH living right on the course. You can expect that ANYTHING YOU DO will be seen by somebody who will influence our ability to run ANY RACE, ANYWHERE in Inyo County in the future. Important things include:

a. Ride to the right in the lane where you can. The roads are OPEN to traffic, and we expect you to be courteous to motorists at all times.

b. STOP at the STOP signs. I know this is unusual. I hear it at every race we put on. Inyo County requires this of us, so we require it of you. We WILL DQ anybody who runs the STOP signs. It is the only way we can protect OUR RACE from those riders who think the rules do not apply to them. There will be a map at Registration showing the three STOP signs.

c. Use the bathroom before the race. Using the bushes gets us in big trouble. Another chance to get a DQ. Please don’t.

4) We will have the usual stuff: Hammer HEED and Electrolytes, bananas, pretzels, fig newtons, some kind of granola bars, etc. No hot chocolate.

5) It should be cool in the morning (45-50F) and warm in the afternoon (75-82F). Just about perfect race weather.

6) I like making lists!

YOUNGER JUNIORS always race on a shortened course at AntiGravity Cycling races.

For the Nine Mile Canyon Omnium, that means 10.2 miles instead of the full 16 miles.  They miss out on the easiest part of the course, about 3.5 miles worth, but they also miss out on the toughest pitch of all, right at the end.

And six miles is, after all, six miles.

Some of the fields are past the magical FIVE RIDER MINIMUM we need in order to get a huge haul of SoCal Cup Points (and upgrade points, of course).  Others are close.

 

Registration closes tonight at 8:00PM, so get off the fence if you are thinking about some climbing in the very Southern end of the Eastern Sierra.  I will have another update tonight…going to ride the big Kawasaki up there right now for course marking and last-minute intel.

 

 

 

Lots of reasons to sign up at the last minute.

No sense signing up a month early if you crash out the week before, right?  So…I get the last minute signup thing.

BUT…

There is also a lot of looking and waiting to see who is signed up.  You know, not signing up unless there are X number of riders already signed up in your Category.  So everybody watches, waiting for everybody else to sign up?

Heard from a lot of folks over the last couple of weeks that have said they are coming (or probably or maybe or something) to the Nine Mile Canyon Omnium.  Hope you are not all out there waiting for somebody else to go first.  Come sign up Saturday morning if you like.  But signing up now saves you a few $$$ and maybe encourages other folks to sign up too.  It’s like a public service or something.

FIVE riders minimum in each Category to qualify for SoCal Cup Points.  With a 2.5 multiplier!!!  We are talking about a LOT of points here.
