    There should be a press release for this. I could see a local news channel running this story.

    I'm not sure of the plans for that weekend yet, but I'd love to do a couple laps if available. :thumbsup:

    He won't go SS... yet.
    That does remind me of an idea I had some time ago. A different bike every lap. I almost have enough bikes to pull it off.

    This seems like a more than worthy occasion for my inaugural Flooping. I'm on the highly likely side of tentative for a lap or two.

    There might be more trail riding on the Floop than the WW50.

    You're forgetful... After the 2016 version, I outlined the trails specifically for you. I think it was in the neighborhood of 25 miles, with 10,000 feet of descent. :p

    Pretty sure that's a much "better" (painful) ratio than the upcoming Hellacious rides... That will be a nice recovery spin. :Roflmao

    25 miles of fire road and 10,000 feet of climbing sounds like a great day! Hellacious isn’t 10k of DH?

    I got just under 10 the first time on the Garmin. The second time it showed around 9... My Garmin was not the most consistent device.

    The fireroad climbs in Wrightwood aren't bad. The pavement is the real killer. You'd love that... 90 degrees climbing steep asphalt for 3 miles after doing the best downhill trail on the course- Manzanita. :inlove:

    Sorry, @Grego . Let's get back on track... I love the Floop!

    So has the TrailSlayer decided he will get up at a reasonable hour? Weather prediction is 57 degrees at start, 80 for the high. No heatwave, no "boredum." :rolleyes:

    I'm planning to be out there. Dunno 'bout no FLoop century, but I'll give it my best. :thumbsup:

    Probably starting around 8:30am. Maybe drag it out into the evening a bit to keep it somewhat interesting. Depends on the pace.
    I aint doing no Floop century either. Most I've done in one day was 66 miles.
