    I did a ride with the Fullerton Bikes crew on Saturday and the trip on SART from PCH to Lincoln was gnarly. 20+ MPH winds the whole way.

    That's nothing! Try racing DH in Fontruckstop on the pro/exp course with 60mph gust trying to knock you down! LOL I did yesterday and is was no fun and a tad scary. ;)

    I've seen more wind on SART as far as gust and wind speed but this Saturday was non stop & consistent. Not sure if you saw the video but there is a clip of a group heading inland. Maybe 12-15 guys, very well organized and well behaved for a big group. Maybe that was your group. :D

    You're right, I can't imagine racing downhill. I remember a group of us from a forum were climbing GMR to the village when a 60 MPH (forecast)gust knocked one guy over. He hit the ground and was out cold for a few minutes. :-O
