I rode the 2012 Sequoia Century 200K yesterday, using it as a proxy for the 1st day of the Everest Challenge, which means I rode it hard, including doing my fastest ascent ever of Tunitas Creek at mile ~100.
The conditions were absolutely perfect— suny with temps in the 50-80° range (50° in the morning, 60° at the coast, up to 80° at lower elevations at the end). And today it’s raining. Now that’s good timing!
