2010 Furnace Creek 508 Roster


That’s it boys and girls, ladies and gentlemen, the 2010 Furnace Creek 508 roster is out.  I made the list.  2010 will be my fifth consecutive and final solo 508.  There are approximately 13 weeks remaining for me and the other 91 solo racers to get ready for the “toughest 48 hours in sport”.  That’s right 92 solo racers this year!  A good solid field is represented with the 2009 508 champion, Chris “Ram” Ragsdale returning to defend his title.

I am currently in my mountain training phase.  For the months of June and July and parts of August, depending how my numbers look, I do a lot of work climbing the mountains of southern California.  I then wean myself off the mountains and begin to do higher intensity, albeit, shorter rides through the end of August and September.  Things are going well for me and I feel strong for this time of year.  My power numbers look good and I have maintained my weight at 150lbs or 68 kg.

This weekend brings more climbing and suffering in the Sierras.  Stay tuned for another weekend of EPIC TRAINING!

  1. The solo option of this race has really grown – which will be great motivating competition for you! Train hard and stay focused to make this last solo effort the best one yet!

    • Wow Hello Carol,

      Thank you for chiming in. How have you been? I’d like to know what you have been up to. You have been with me since the beginning of these 508’s. It’s become really stressful finding time to train properly for the 500 mile distance. I manage a shop now and the hours are long. Every other week I work 7 days straight. I just don’t get the time to my century plus rides like I used to. Also my son is getting older, will be 6 in September, and he is at such an awesome age I feel guilty being gone so long on the bike. Anyway, I will do the my best at the 508 and end with a bang!
