Death Ride
The 2002 Death Ride (Markleville, CA) was a personal success. I was able to finish all five passes 90 minutes faster than last year. The weather was splended and varied, with a bit of heat on the back side of Ebbetts and a bit of rain on the Carson Pass decent due to a typical Sierra afternoon thundershower. There was one serious accident that I know of. On the East side of Monitor Pass a rider fell and suffered serious injuries and was helicoptered out. His condition was not known at the end of the ride. Our hopes and prayers are with this rider. All the riders that I spoke to were in good spirits and were enjoying the spetacular scenery. The only down side is that no one is sure if they will be able to participate in next years event due to the high demand for registration and the lottery selection method.
