Who is Faster up to the top of La Costa Hills / Denk Mountain

Man or Machine?

Denk Mountain Hill Climb

Who is Faster?

The question is who is faster-  the Runner or the Mountain Biker?

The answer is the formation of the event Man Vs Machine, where each is pitted against the other in a timed event up the hill.

History of the concept:
Last year a group of us would meet on Fridays to Mountain Bike up Denk Mountain (Top of Rancho La Costa Conservation Area).  Sometimes we would have runners participate.  It became clear that by choosing different routes it was not clear who would be at the top of the hill first – Man or Machine.

Man Vs Machine is looking to be a simple affair:

  1. Decide if you are a Man/Woman/Hiker or a Machine.
  2. Register for the event on line (Before Aug 27th)
  3. Show up at Cadenza park the morning of the event (6:30am to 7:10am)
  4. Give us your donation of $10 or more for RLCC (Only Cash)
  5. Get your starting time
  6. Go to the starting location (Starting at 7:30am)
  7. Go as fast as you can up the hill

Every now and then the right mix of people, places and circumstances come together to form the perfect event. This past Saturday morning in Southern California there was just such an event.

The archipelago ride as it was called was in its second year. Created by a mountain biker and local legend it was designed to be a ride that would bring about awareness of the local recreation areas we have and to imagine how wonderful it would be if they were all connected together. Commemorative t-shirts were made showing the ride route on a map with each area strung together like a chain of islands.

This year over 100 riders showed up for what was sure to be an all day epic. It was being billed as a 50-mile ride that would include trails from 9 local recreation areas. Was it a ride? A race? Was it just a great excuse to ride a mountain bike all day with your friends? It turned out to be all of those and more.

Riders were treated to all sorts of challenges from monster switch back climbs to rocky stream crossings. Along the way the event coordinator would show up at key spots to direct traffic and make sure everyone stayed on track. He also entertained the riders by wearing outfits befitting of the “Hawaiian Island” theme of the ride. The ride ended with a BBQ complete with plenty of beer and food. In the end I felt as though I had been a part of something memorable. What the future holds for this ride is anyone’s guess. Some say it could become an official race, some hope that it remains under-ground true to its roots. One thing for sure is this event has the heart and soul to become one of Southern California’s premier mountain bike events. – 29ER Guy

Yesterday many people viewed the first blog entry for Will S (29er guy). Several non believers (I know – who could not believe in his greatness) did not believe an average heart rate of 184. Here is the link to his Garmin output for the race:

Dave,
This file should squelch the naysayers. Remember 29er guys heart beats about 29 more times a minute than most guys.

29Er Guy can write, but I post for him…

This past Sunday was the beginning of race season for many here in Southern California. The Sagebrush Safari plays host to those looking to compete in both the Kenda Cup and US Cup West series.

My good friend Joe and I made it out to Sagebrush to test our spring fitness. We had had a week of rain before Sunday and the big question on everyone’s mind was what the course would be like. Thankfully the rain stopped Saturday night and the soil there is sandy so it drained pretty well. I thought about changing tires the night before the race, but I stuck to my tried and true Bontrager Jones XRs front and rear. As for the bike I went with the SuperFly hard-tail set up with the 1×10 drivetrain. The Sagebrush course has two major climbs and both are on paved roads, so the hard-tail seemed the perfect bike.

I raced Cat 2 in the 45-50 age group. Our course was an 18 mile loop with everything from pavement to single track to hike-a-bike. The race starts much like a road race with about 3 miles of pavement. We shed several riders from our group even before the climb. If you didn’t know how to draft like a roadie you were in trouble. Once we hit the big climb we started to catch riders from other groups and it was hard to tell who was in your race.

I used my Garmin Edge 500 during the race and monitored my heart rate the entire time. I was amazed at the end to see my average heart rate for the race was 184bpm. At the top of the climb the fun begins and we were treated to miles of swoopy fun single track. The rain had left behind lots of puddles and mud bogs that had to be navigated along the way. I got into a rhythm and started to enjoy the ride. The race official warned us at the beginning about a large water crossing near the end and he wasn’t kidding. What was usually a stream had become a small river due to all the rain. Riders had to decide if they wanted to risk riding it or dismount and wade through. I went for it and was able to ride through without a problem. Sure was glad it was toward the end of the course as the water was cold. It did however do a good job of rinsing off the Superfly so I looked good crossing the line.

I managed 5th place, which was good enough for a medal and a place on the podium. My buddy Joe got 4th in the Cat 2 40-45 class so we were both happy with our results and stuck around for the awards. The Sagebrush Race draws a serious crowd of racers, but still has a fun down home feel. I saw some other friends and we enjoyed hanging out and re-telling our race to each other.

I ran into friend of the shop and Pro racer Rebecca Tomaszewski. She managed 3rd place in the women’s pro race riding her single speed. Dam that girl is tough. All and all we had a fun day at the races.
