    Sure. I thought maybe I missunderstood something. Once you download the document you need to change remove the .zip at the end of the file name. To do this right click and select Rename. Meaning the file name should be TraverseCutOffSheet.xls not TraverseCutOffSheet.xls.zip You will then be able to open the file in Excel.

    Please make sure to vet the file before providing it to others. I would hate to have someone miss a cut off or something.

    Well if it's wrong then it's my fault cause I gave him the cutoff times and distances from cutoff station to cutoff station. I can't seem to open to see it either.

    Is there a 2:15 cutoff at Silverado? The Warrior's site course description only mentions the other 2. :?:

    On my training ride I made it to Silverado in 2:20 but beat the 4 Corners cutoff by 1/2 hour.

    No, that's how long it should take you to get to the top of MW in order to have plenty of time to get to 4 Corners. Sort of like the VQ when I said if you make the peak by 11:00, you would have plenty of time to get to HJ lot by 12:30(cutoff)

    I edited the sheet to show the cutoffs

    Last Saturday I only got to The top of Motorway at 2hrs 40, kinda slow but I dont think that I will be any faster on race day. It should only take an hour from Motorway to 4 corners tho, if memory serves me correctly? So I should be at 4 corners at +- 10:40.

    It's at the top of Lower Holy Jim where it meets the Main Divide.

    After you bag the peak, you'll hit it after a couple miles (~2?) when you start descending Main Divide.

    Thanks. That is what I thought but there was reference in a previous thread to HJ p-lot and this got me thinking.

    A little collaboration/mash-up here. I tend to get confused during races about times (especially if I have a goal in mind) and math starts to get a little difficult the further along I go, so I made this. Hope it helps anyone that suffers the same dementia I do on the course. Click the file for a larger version.

    Thanks to MTBMaven and Geoladders for the data. Oh and to the Warrior's Society and everyone else that's going to make Saturday a great day.

    EDIT: If there are any requests for modification or addition to this thing, let me know before I delete the original file. Happy to take requests.

    This is great. I might actually use instead.

    Suggestions:
    1) Add mileage for each leg under the times
    2) Add the cut off location, maybe above the profile
