Devil Mountain Double Century: 206 miles and 18,870+ Vertical Feet

Done. The Devil Mountain Double Century at 206.0 miles and 18,800 vertical fee of climbing.

Clock time: 14:13
Roll time:  13:29:54
Power (watts)*:  187.9
Heart rate**: 124.0
Ascent:  18,827'
Distance: 207.0 (nominal 206)
Kilojoules*: 9087 (8687 calories)
Speed**: 15.34 mph * Power and kilojoules computed while pedaling only ** Heart rate and speed averages while rolling (does not average in rest stops)

I had some tight hamstrings, some patella pain, and some painful toes, but otherwise things went as well as I could have hoped for.

I suppose I could have worked harder and got sub-14 (easily done just by cutting 14 minutes off the 45 minutes or so of rest stops, and avoiding wasting a few minutes at the end before time was taken), but sub-13 would be much harder. Still, I am quite happy with my results at #13.

142 riders completed the full course

I had my sluggish spots (I’ll never eat a chicken sandwich for lunch on a double century again— too much protein kills my performance), and my sympathy to the hopeful rider who caught me at the Crothers rest stop, and who I then instantly dropped in an unequivocal way on Sierra Road (not really very hard I thought), as my chicken sandwich cleared out and my power returned.

Now I need to get down to race weight, which means a strict diet with a calorie deficit for 2 months. Hard to do, but 6 pounds to lose to get lean.
