Detailed route and turn map for 2011 Stage 1.

Implications of the route reversal for 2011

See the Everest Challenge 2011 Update 6 notes. The course reversal was forced by county officials a week before the race.

The route reversal means that the Bishop Creek / South Lake climb is now the FIRST climb of the day. In past years, it was the last climb, which meant it was very hot (usually).

Key points:

  • Temperatures ascending and descending to/from South Lake could be cool to the point of being cold and thus sweat-soaked racers might want a vest for the South Lake descent.
  • The very fast and very long descent from South Lake is now part of the race timing, so plan acccordingly, such as ingesting a suitable amount of fuel and liquid prior to descending. The very high speeds are also worth noting; stay alert.
  • The 4.3-mile neutralized section FROM SWALL MEADOWS RD. TO US395 should be planned for in terms of effort and rest.
  • Everest Challenge times for 2011 are not directly comparable to previous years; the distance has been shortened and the South Lake descent is now timed. Also, the Bishop Creek / South Lake climb is now made with cooler temperatures, possibly 50° F cooler, which can have a large impact on ascent time, not to mention the much fresher legs.
