100 cyclists completed the Central Coast Double on May 11, 2019 under beautiful conditions.
Only 68 cyclists completed the Highland Course required for the California Triple Crown Stage Race.
109 cyclists registered for the Terrible Two, 104 started and only 68 completed this extremely difficult course.
Ride Organizer Bill Oetinger wrote: "No one knows what the weather will be like when they sign up for the Terrible Two. Mother Nature breathes
in and out every few days—on-shore, off-shore…back and forth—and we never know which end of the cycle
will greet the troops when they line up at the start. One thing we can almost predict though: if it’s hot early in
the week leading up to the TT, it will probably have cooled down by the weekend.
That was the case this year. On Monday and Tuesday we were seeing readings around the county as high
as 106°. Life was a little uncomfortable then, but we took comfort in knowing or at least hoping the fever
would break before Friday. And so it did. On the day of the big ride—Saturday, June 15—highs around the
course ranged from 85° in Cloverdale to an almost nippy 67° in Sebastopol."
The Alta Alpina 8 Pass Challenge was the third and final stage of the 2019 California Triple Crown Stage Race on June 29, 2019.
Only 45 cyclists completed this extremely challenging course with 20,700 Feet of Climbing!!
We tip our helmets to all of those who have completed all three stages of this most difficult 2019 Stage Race.
Everyone who completes all three stages will be recognized at the 2019 California Triple Crown Awards Breakfast to be held on 9/22/19,
the day after the Beach City Double. The 3 winners in each division will be awarded the coveted California Triple Crown Stage Race Plaques.
We are looking for photos from these Double Centuries. Please e-mail links to them to Chuck Bramwell at CBrams at CalTripleCrown.com
