Alta Alpina 8-Pass Challenge Double Century, 1st Finisher, 2nd Place

I was the 1st finisher for the Alta Alpina 8-Pass Challange and I basked in the limelight... for 30 minutes. Boy, was I pleased!

But as it turned out, one fast rider had left an hour later than I had, coming in about half an hour after I did for the winning time (I’m unsure of his exact time, it’s self-reported), pushing me into 2nd place. Dang!

Well, I was pleased with my performance, except that dehydration on Ebbett’s Pass and fueling issues and a “nature call” half-way up Monitor Pass cost me significant time. But the important thing is that to always profit from experience for next time.

Ride stats

From my SRM PC7 with the SRM software.

Clock time (HH:MM:SS): 13:45:56
Roll time: 13:02:13 (on the bike) Ascent: 20,319' Watts: 185.5 Cadence: 63 rpm Average Heart rate: 122 bpm Max HR: 147 bpm Distance: 197.48 miles

According to ride organizers, I was edged out by Robert C who had a time 9 minutes faster. That’s just a few extra minutes loitering at rest stops , and an unplanned “nature call” involving sagebrush!

Report to follow.
