    Registration opens January 3, 2018, at 6 pm our time. I can't believe I'm actually considering this again.

    The race (ride for me, at most) happens July 14, 2018. This is basically two humongous climbs, at altitude. The start is a couple hundred feet higher than Santiago Peak. The finish is at 10,400 feet. :eek:

    I'm on the fence, leaning toward signing up. Not because I think I can be competitive in the standings, but because it has kicked my wimpy a$$ twice before.

    I will probably regret this. :cry:

    And now my brother has reminded me that the Death Ride (in Markleeville, CA, just south of Lake Tahoe) is also on July 14. Registration is now open for that one. It's only 129 miles and 15,000 feet of gain....

    Yeah, pretty much. Crusher is better, but not that much better.
