Main Divide humor!
I was thinking the same thing about a pre-ride...
I'd actually like to do this (I'm sane - really!!) but it'll have to wait 'til fall most likely.
I didn't realize Maple Spring Rd intersected south Main Divide.
Wasn’t the cut-off 4 hours to bottom of motorway for VQ & Counting Coup?
I know I sound old & slow but I’m interested in joining and 3 1/2 hours to bottom of motorway is a real challenge for me
Yes, for VC/CC it is 4 hrs.
You have time to train.
I just don't like the idea of a shorter route....especially they way it is being framed.
A Sierra Peak out 'n back just isn't much of a challenge; it can be done with 1 or 2 bottles on the bike, and definitely with a pack. No support needed, so paying for it doesn't make sense.
Add in dropping down Skyline and back up, then it gets fun.
So, they kinda gotta work on their locations and timing...
We will have two cutoff times similar to the Counting Coup for the pro and intermediate course:
1. 10:00 a.m. - at the Aid Station at the bottom of the Silverado Trail and Maple Spring Road
2. 12:00 a.m. - at the Aid Station at the intersection of Maples Springs Road and the South Main Divide Road.
Nope....if it takes you 4 hrs to get to bottom of Motorway, then you won’t make the 12:00 cutoff at 4 Corners.
You have his email...feel free to correct him.
It's the same 4 and 6 hour cutoff that we had for VQ and CC... (5:30-9:30 for aid station 1 at MW, and 11:30 for aid station 2 at Four Corners). We can sleep in an extra half hour for this one.
I will most likely sign up. The course isn't as fun as VQ, but it will still be fun in its own painful way.
Edit: The thing that jumps out at me is the lack of a third cutoff. Due to logistics, most likely... That is a long painful stretch from Four Corners to Black Star.
He’s pointing out it says SOuTH MD. I’d imagine that 95% of the riders out there don’t even know there is an extension to Main Divide.
Missed that... Although South Main Divide is on my wish list.
I'll ping you when it reopens. I'm looking forward to that too.
And the midnight cutoff time...
Is South Main Divide closed? (That's south of Ortega)
I think Wildomar OHV and CG is closed.
Yep, closed at Elsinore Peak due to one of the fires (Wildomar I think),
