Those of you who are inexplicably drawn to long-distance cycling ( or wonder why on earth anyone would attempt it :eek: ) might enjoy the progress reports being posted for the Gold Rush Randonee, which started yesterday evening in Davis CA.

They have 90 hours to cycle 1200 km (about 700-ish miles) - here's the profile http://davisbikeclub.org/goldrush/images/GRRProfile26k.gif

Alas, the rider I was keeping tabs on dropped out at the 100 mile checkpoint :(

(aw, come on, we can't blame my K of D on that ... can we? :confused: )

Was that Sterling from Riv?

Ouch :o I'm needing the jersey :D

and yes Snap, it was Sterling, along with and other contributor to the Riv list named Rob whom I have not met. AFAIK Sterling was riding Waldo's brother (same color Saluki , different components). Since both Sterling & Rob dropped out at the early checkpoint I can only venture maybe one of them had a problem and other other dropped to help out somehow - perhaps one had to get home suddenly and the other gave him a ride ? I hope no one was injured or ill. Time will tell.
