    I fear this ride. You are a complete stud to conquer it!

    Thanks, All! Daryl: I bonked first two times trying this (2000 (finished), and 2002 (DNF)) but key this time was power meter (setting a power limit), and steady intake of Hammer stuff. Other than Hammer stuff I had a half a "Pro Bar" and some fruit from rest stops. Unfortunately my 250 watt hard limit got me dropped from the 6 am start group on Diablo, so I did most of the ride solo, since when I caught people (either 5 am starters or 6 am'ers who'd blown from having gone out too hard) they weren't very useful. My highest power was on the last climb (Norris Canyon), I think. Weather was generally good, although in the sun it got up to 100.4F on San Antonio Valley Road, and I faded a bit there. But by Sierra Rd it was down to mid-80Fs, and I was much better.

    Super-thanks to Quack Cyclists: the support on this ride is just incredible.

    It seems like you rode it the best, even at 200 miles, guys get caught up in the competition and go way too hard way too early.

    So jealous. If double marin goes well I might do that one next year. Congratulations!

    Smart to watch your power. First time I did the DMD I went too hard and cramped big time on the backside of Mt Ham and finished late. Second time I rode smart and finished well, but nothing like your great time. I wonder how you did it with such a low average power in that time. Very efficient riding.

    Outstanding! Devilish...

    Maciek: You, Rob, and Jason should definitely do this. Rob in particular would be all over this ride. You can definitely do this. Franz: remember you spend a lot of time descending close to 20kft and power is zero. I was targeting climbing @ 3.6 W/kg, but fell below this on gradual climbs. That's as good as I can do for this distance.

    I saw some DMD folks suffering going over Patterson pass after the Wente race. I'm thinking they didn't make it... Great job!!

    Cool! I love this ride. More people should do it!

    very solid!

    Nice work Dan. Maybe I'll do this one some day...

    Very impressive.

    The rest stop efficiency is as impressive as the riding!

    This is the very definition of impressive. Yah, I gotta do this one someday.

    For some reason unknown to me you were dropped from my follow group. Wow great job on DMD and you took Bart get there! Are you doing the TT?

  29. Daniel C.

    Dick: Thanks! The Triple Crown Stage race is TT and Alpina 8-pass challenge. I think doubles separated by only two weeks is too much, so may just do the Alpina Challenge, which I've not done. That also provides shorter ride options for Cara.

    Just came across your blog - On bicycles and what else is there. Looks like you're the man to watch. I'm fairly new to the sport and still a "duffer" but always looking to improve. Hope you don't mind if I stalk your rides and blog. My avatar pretty much describes my riding style. Everyone passes me.
