It did but was corrected. The cutoff time at 4 corners is 11:30am
Thanks Sweatpea. But I still got my eye trained on cutoff #3 at 12:30pm at the bottom of Holy Jim.
errr you mean 12:00
I just have to say it... "my first Counting Coup"! I am jazzed... this will get me off my ass more and ride the bike for sure...!
Good Luck Waldo I know you had a tough year last year
I don't know why, I was tired when I signed up this am was kinda so so... now I came back and read all the posts ... I am psyched!
I talked a new person in last year...She had never done the race (CC) it was her first MTB race ever and she finished. This year we got her son to sign up and another first timer!
I told them and I can see, smell, taste, hear and feel it...
One of those crisp clean cool but sunny days up around 4000 ft on my ride....can't wait!
See you all out there!
If anyone feels like dropping out of the Vision Quest PM me, I'll pay you the registration fee and be eternally grateful! :beer:
+1 I just got home from vacation today & it's sold out.
Genusmtbkr5 started a thread just for this situation (Thanks by the way!)
I didnt expect to sell out so fast..
Ok you OverAchievers, If any of you break your leg/arm/bike, I would love to buy your entrance spot off you.
There is already others waiting. Go here to put yourself on a waiting list.
VQ/CC waiting list
you can do it anytime starting in november.
Thanks, however I have no point of reference for where on the elevation profile these cutoffs are located. I will be more specific. At what mileage mark in this elevation profile are the cutoffs located? I am in San Diego so the majority of my training will be done here and any info regarding distance and elevation gain to the cutoffs will help greatly with planning my training along with many others who will find this info useful. Thanks again.
The first cutoff at 9:30 is at about the 18+ mile mark. Elevation gain is about 4500 ft. The second cutoff at 11:30 at 4 Corners is at about the 26+ mile mark and the gain there is about 2700 ft. At this point, the CC participants have made the cutoffs and will finish.
If your'e doing the VQ, those first 2 cutoffs will not mean anything to you cause if you are at the second cutoff at 4 Corners at 11:30, you will not make it to the bottom of Holy Jim by the 3rd cutoff at 12:00.
Dang! That was one of the reasons I was dilly dallying about signing up.
Well, if the powers that be want me to ride, it will happen.
Counting Coup 2009 is sold out. If you decide not to do the race, let me know and i will buy your entry.
There is an ongoing waiting list here: VQ/CC waiting list, go there and follow the instruction and I will add you to the main list in my post.
