Double Centuries and Killer Rides for 2012

As rigorous pre-flighting of the 2012 Everest Challenge (29,000' — September 28/29, 2012) which I aim to win in M45-54 Master category, I’ve completed three double centuries so far:

I’m signed up for these events:

Summit of White Mountain Peak

I intend to repeat my own self-designed hard-man ride, the Trek To the Summit of White Mountain Peak (~15,000', MTB)—mid July. But of course this will be done on my Moots Mooto X YBB 29er this year. I might take along 1-2 other riders (for a fee), inquire if interested.

The Trek to the Summit of White Mountain Peak route is terrific high-altitude training that demands high torque and power output, especially up the brutal Silver Canyon, which is way harder than any road-bike ride I know of. While it is much shorter than a double century, it is just as hard (steep and rough from 4000 to 14,252 feet / 4344m elevation).

The photo below is from last July 2011 early on the ride. Be lean (as I was here) for this challenge! I am wearing my favorite jersey from the Everest Challenge.
