Do you have a wheel sensor, or do you just go with GPS?

just a GPS that i end up using just for time when racing anyways, i should probably just get a timex watch instead

I tried a watch (on my wrist), but at races with long descents like the Breck Epic, it was digging into my skin.

I could put a foam donut on my bars, but what is this?  Polar HRM 1996?  Wait... you weren't even a teenager yet.

I usually put this Cateye (without a wheel sensor) on my bike when I need to know the time... like at PMBAR.  I so shoulda mounted it at TWE.  Woulda been stoked to know it was gonna be an sub-four hour day.

I still have the magnet and sensor... somewhere.  I think.

USNWC posted this prior to the race

"We have measured the course using multiple GPS devices, as well as analog. Each of the devices came back with mileage varying up to 11 miles. To ensure accuracy and consistency, this course was officially measured and mileage was determined by analog. The Whole Enchilada came in at 45 miles and The Half Enchilada came in at 23 miles."

There's a reason I don't think I'll ever go GPS.  I can't stand the look of the hub tumor, so until they do something less obtrusive, I'm out.

Thats the thingy I use for my wheel with my garmin. I can't stand it when my mileage isnt accurate. I use that Garmin watch that has a square-ish shape, it doesnt dig into my wrist.  (You need to Login or Register to view media files and links);

I have six of those cateyes with wheel sensors in both black and white that were all take offs from over the years sitting in my spare parts bin.  If you need a replacement or spare, let me know.  Free to a good home.

The only part of the race I thought could stand some fixin was the end of Academy, with the two way section up a short hill.

I ended up pushing my bike up that hill in the weeds to get by the barrage of people coming down the hill to start academy.

Seems like widening that section or somehow letting the folks coming down they should yield to folks who are 30 minutes ahead of them would be helpful.

Other than that, it was a hoot.  Maybe I'll be dumb enough to ride the full next year.

Not free, remember the entrance fee.

Pretty sure Pearl meant that if they allowed us access to the images, we would share them on our socials, thus giving the race more exposure at no expense to USNWC.

All I got for my $50 (+ $6 for parking) was a good time, and I guess some support on course (that I didn't take the time to utilize).  Pretty much what I paid for.

I found out that they had M&M's at Aid 3 and I'm pissed I didn't stop.

Peanut M&M's or one of the countless (and pointless) other varieties?

Everything that ever came out after Peanut is an unfortunate mutant child.  They shoulda stopped right there.

Peanut butter, pretzel, almond, dark chocolate, crispy... mint.

KILL THEM ALL WITH FIRE.

I didn't sign up early enough for the socks.  I did get the stainless steel beer glass... which I put in my stainless steel beer glass cupboard... with all my other stainless steel beer glasses.
