25 May 2012 3:52 PM | David R King (Administrator)

Sunday was Stage 5 of the 2012 Tour De Mad Dog.

The Salem Century.

Ride Report:
I was not there but I can tell you it was Hot! And the day was long for some and short for others.

Thanks to Steve for hosting this Stage again this year.


The Stage Winner was John "The Vaccinator" Larson and the draw bonus was a Bike type= Recumbent for 1 minute. If you qualify for this bonus let me know by Thursday 5-31 at 5:55 PM and I will credit it to your time. There is also a 0:01:30 difficulty bonus for this ride. The Roll of the die was 6. That means groups of 12 or more will get a 7 second bonus of which there was none. Stage Winner, John Larson, has the option of giving a 10 second penalty to whomever he decides. John please contact me off list on what you decide. Once I get his decision I will post the result.

If I missed you on the results let me know off list.

The Stage has been set with 19 Women and 57 Men. How many will complete the Challenge?

Once again we will have some movement on the podiums. GC to be posted next week
