    Awesome! You know you're crushing it when you have to worry about the rangers while going up hill. And that guy riding it backwards was truly hard core. I did pick up one tip from your videos ... I don't need to start my ride from inside the potty to match the Strava segment.

    I don't mean to be a dick but seems like you cheated somehow. Just this little voice inside my head says something ain't quite right. I don't know how but I am going to find out what you did to hit this amazing time and when I do, like Endurain, and all those mind trick drugs he did, you're going down.

    For now gents, new time to beat is 2 minutes.

    If you are going for time.....you won't be riding with too many of us for very long ! Not too many are gonna do a 33 to the top BC. I just got back from there at lunch hour and the conditions are perfect. Prolly take tamale off then do round # 6 attempt on Thursday. Still trying for the sub 20 only for now. C'mon guys...BC is one hella quick rabbit to follow up to trim down those times !

    Ok, ok, ok.... I'm not really seeing a lot of new members to the 20-35 club. That is the real crusher category right? Hit the 20 minute mark, keep the pace and finish strong!

    We have one: Brooks Sizemore. Dirk DB, William K and Clark are in but they did it before this thread started.

    Automatic Disqualification then. Good eye.

    Clark Foy - DQ on cross bike

    Other dudes... DQ for not riding it since the challenge began.

    Everybody who's initials are not FC are DQ'd too.

    Brazilian wax Climber. I'll lend you a GPS. You need to get on the board.

    I will accept the GPS, thank you Francois! but, i dont see why the other riders would have to be DQ'd!!

    How faster can be a cross bike than a really light hardtail mtb?

    I think they all should be included in this challenge even if they rode before its establishment!

    He's messin around BC. But my challenge is as of 3 weeks ago only. Not really for times .... more just a completion challenge. It's a bit like the Dogmeat challenge....which I had to re do to make Squashyo's start date and cut off date. I barely survived that crap !

    Nice riding with you animals out there today. That 20 is in reach...next time I'll bring fresh legs. PR'd it but not by much. AR you are a Brazilian wax hair away from landing this beast!

    So, here's the Dogmeat challenge: 2nd Annual Dogmeat No Dab Challenge!!! It's on!

    Darcio: here is the GPS I have which you can steal for $50 if interested: Amazon.com: Garmin Forerunner 405 Wireless GPS-Enabled Sports Watch with USB ANT Stick and Heart Rate Monitor (Black): GPS & Navigation I barely used it...

    These reviews seem to be all over the place. Personally, I thought it worked great but I use the Garmin 500 exclusively now so it just collects dust. No worries if not interested.

    Cheers gents and great fun out there today!

    Super impressive for a big guy! I think you said your about 220lbs? You must have some strong legs and good lungs. Just going to have to find a spot and sprint it out. Your going to get there soon.

    Finally...I'm in !

    20:58...20:20....20:13....20:26 on Sunday...19:59 Today....I take it ! Big air in the tires....no water bottle and one glance only at the clock .... 9:39 @ the hairpin before the longest brutal hill with water bars. Saw the 19 as I passed the tree ..... one blink...and it read 20. Like Francois said...you may need 10 runs to dial it in. # 8 rounds for me. Cool to see Squashyo at the trailhead and a classic coincidence ! Coffee DQ'd ? ************ Prolly twice the legal limit I must confess ! US Cycling Federation (to exceed the US cycling Federation's legal limit for caffeine - urine concentration of 12 micrograms/ml - one would have to ingest 600 mg of caffeine (6 cups of coffee) and have a urine test within 2 to 3 hours).

    20:58...20:20....20:13....20:26 on Sunday...19:59 Today....I take it ! Big air in the tires....no water bottle and one glance only at the clock .... 9:39 @ the hairpin before the longest brutal hill with water bars. Saw the 19 as I passed the tree ..... one blink...and it read 20. Like Francois said...you may need 10 runs to dial it in. # 8 rounds for me. Cool to see Squashyo at the trailhead and a classic coincidence !
    Glad to have witnessed this tremendous event. Granted, I witnessed it in a hallucinatory haze produced from a feeble 21:55 effort. Way to go, home boy!

    I just realized I had been doing this challenge all wrong. I was under the impression that I was supposed to get close to 20 mins for the tree and close to 40 for the top. After checking the data, I realized that my best time to the tree was 12 minutes and to the top in 26 mins. I tried to add more time standing around on the trail but I just start to get cold. After I got to the last wall I figure I would add some time and eat a power bar. I even waited till I digested it before finally moving on to the top. I almost blew it and went over 40 mins! This challenge has been fun but the way I do it, I get no benefit. I also did it once seated backwards on my bars and I even made better time than normal. Must be weight distribution or something.

    Thanks guys ! I had to take more swings at this one than I did on Squashyo's dogmeat challenge ... which I'm sure many have noticed has raised it's ugly head again ! 5 rounds for Dogmeat and 8 rounds for the sub 20. Squashyo is in for a bit of a struggle on the sub 20 part of my thread. Just like it was for me on his original Dogmeat challenge. And... like anything else. It's mo fun when you have to work hard to get it......eh ?

    Very nice job! Congrats to all who have reached the sub 20 and/or 40.

    I am with ebnash... I just want the sub 40 so I can stop obsessing over this challenge and go ride some other trails.

    Nice work dude! I donít know how you can do it without a water bottle though, I sweat like a motherf&#117;cker when I ride, no matter how hard or how easy the pace.

    I am hoping to get out there Friday for another go at the sub-20 to the tree attempt. I have a new $70 hardtail frame Iíve built up for the sake of cheap/light/speed. I am interested to see how much uphill time I can shave off without rear suspension.

    Thanks man. It was the hardest thing ever for me. No water bottle is no big deal when you drive there walk across the street then do a 20 minute run and come back. Those 8 runs were for sub 20 tries only. I was blown up at the tree on all of them. Your gonna be hella fast on the hardtail. Can't wait to see it. Good luck....you will get faster each run and it may take a few !

    Seems Iím not getting any faster. I can only guess it is due to not having had an uninterrupted night of sleep for more than a month, and also fewer proper training rides. I havenít changed a thing in my diet or amounts of fluids that I ingest/pass.

    Regardless, I tried again today on the new lighter weight hardtail, had some rear derailleur problems (probably lost about a minute to the tree, and about a minute to the top because of the problems). I forgot that new cables stretch out. So, here is my 20 40 fail #something:

    You and I at least got part of it. You crushed the sub 40 and I devastated the sub 20. ... I may have had up to 1/3 of a second to spare on that run !

    All the local weather forecasts were sooo freakiní incorrect that I decided to opt out of what could have been a 75% no rain ride up Kennedy. Yes, it would have been cooooold and muddy, but oh well.

    Came down Kennedy today after riding Dogmeat and have to say any new efforts for this are going to be TOUGH till we see a long break in the weather. Very thick mud at the beginning that will knock some legs out early.
