I was trying to put it into ridewithgps, but it kept splitting the track up.  I only have my phone now, but once i signed up, i clicked out of the page, logged in again and then clicked on the route name (which was now highlighted) and a dropdown menu opened with "download" option.  If this doesnt work, pm me and ill email the gpx and kerp trying to fix it for ridewithgps (will probably need smorris
Help hek

Okay, the .gpx is up at:  https://www.windy.com/upload/5d31ec921f31db00197ea33e  You have to signup (free) to download it.  This is a 350 mile loop course starting and ending in Buffalo, WY on September 6, 2019 at 7:00 a.m.   If I have time, there will be a couple of changes to the .gpx, which will be up at least 2 weeks before start, otherwise the route will stay as it is.

Since i don't recall seeing any notifications for spot rentals, and it is now likely too late to start that process, I am wondering if there is even going to be an 'official' track this year...?

Cool. Seems like there was some back and forth with the date change... with the most recent being that it wasn't going to change for myriad reasons. What pushed it back to this side of the decision?
No conflicts with hikers and north rim st being open were a couple of reasons.

I'll have a cold beer for you at the finish!

If I can get it together, it will be a loop route (no wilderness) otherwise it will stay point to point.  Most of the ways to get to ten sleep involve driving.  Probably the best bet is to fly into billings or casper and then take a bus to either powell/lovell or buffalo.  It is definitely an easier ride to ten sleep from Powell.  You can also probably fly into Denver and take a bus.  Allegiant air has super cheap  flights to billings from select locations, but no bikes, so you would have to ship with bike flights.  Failing this, if you can get to sheridan or buffalo I can drive you to start.  Hope you can make it, I think September will be good time to ride!

Exciting race!  After Justin Dubois, there are 10 riders within 45 miles of each other, and the next 10 are within 50 miles of each other.  Also rooting for Dylan Gonda, showing grit despite not meeting his expectations, have a feeling he'll be faster the 2nd time.

Yes, it definitely sucks for Hanoch. He is doing an amazing job, and even if he ends up with some sort of asterix by his result, he certainly has a moral victory.

Hopefully the signage was removed, otherwise I can't argue with all these reasons.  Still sucks since he's taking a harder route and not breaking the rules to get an advantage.  Still, finishing is the main thing and hopefully he won't lose heart.  Some of the best parts of the trail are still ahead!

Yeah, it's definitely a sad situation. To preserve the integrity of the event, and others like it, I think a relegation would be appropriate. Such a pity, as he has totally crushed the course. 😥 He probably will not even realize his error, bit if he did and was able to get a new gpx file, he could retrace down the re-route and the ride it north again.

Hopefully the Flagstaff community will be understanding, if they notice.  Hard to understand ignoring the closure signs, but he probably thought the track superseded the signs.  I guess Mr. Schilling has to make that call, but imo it seems too extreme.

Iím scratching out today.  I started cramping around mile 75.  I pushed onto to mile 95 last night.  I woke up at 1:30 puking and dry heaving- havenít been able to keep anything down since then. I limped into Tucson and tried to find a combo of stomach medicine and basic food (bread/crackers/etc) that would let something stay down.  No luck outside of milk of magnesia and pedialyte and even that seems on the edge. 9 hours without food has left me destroyed.  Iím not sure what happened - I may have gone out too hard or just didnít listen to my body early enough.  Given the heat and lack of calories Iím able to consume - proceeding seems stupid.  Not going to finish this time.

 Thanks again John!  Good luck to everyone out there!

Hey Justin, nice meeting you out there, you were definitely riding strong!  Probably a good move pulling the plug with HOT temps today.  Something to think about:  Sunday, July 28th, 2019 - 4am.  Wink

So, back at sun and spokes, looks like they can get me up and running for an itt day after tomorrow.  Won't have my nice carbon wheel, but they found an aluminum one in back they are going to give me!  Also, probably not the fault of my lbs, despite them not doing what I asked.  Most likely a rock flew up and bent derrailleur hanger...

Super bummed, I'm out.  Derrailleur went into spokes.  Asked my lbs to service shocks and replace all housing.  Instead, they "soaked my derrailleur" overnight.  There was nothing wrong with the derrailleur and I didn't ask them to touch it.  3 hours later the derrailleur went into the spokes, with out even shifting.  Live and learn.  Hoping to fix it and restart, it was a long ways down from WY.

Nothing to be too concerned about, but there is a small fire, the Montezuma fire, burning in the Coronado Monument.  Not to worry though, a cold front is pushing through and summerhaven may get a few inches of snow.  Good call on the start date this year!

One of the options I had considered was to ship my bike to Tucson, and then drive to Page and park my truck at the airport there, and fly down to Tucson.  Would have solved the issue of no ride at the end, but could create a bigger problem if I had to scratch along the way and then still have to get up there.  This still might be a good option for some, if coming from CO. 

So instead I'm either going to ride into Page and hitch south, or ride/hitch to StG then figure it out from there.  I look at it as this will be a good problem to have, if I finish. 

In the past I have left my car at state line campground and hitched to st George with my bike for a one way car rental.  Hitching is easy if you pull both wheels off.  Next time I will hitch to flag as it is closer and on the way.  Psychologically, leaving your car at the finish makes it more likely you will finish, and finish strong, knowing you don't have to hassle with logistics at the end, especially if it is 2 a.m. and 30 degrees

Amazing.  Lael, who was known more for not stopping than riding fast, who says she probably only pushes 100 watts and who wondered if she could finish within 24 hours of the record, is really fast!  It will be exciting to see her 750 run next year.

I don't think you can get a one way car rental out of page.  Have to hitch to st George or flag.

Lael is flying!  Ahead of Kaitlyn Boyle's time from last year, nearly as fast as Kurt Refsnider last year.  Is it too fast or will she keep it up?

Strong field!  At least 7 single speed in for the 750!
