This just in:
RideClean Team member Dan McGehee RE-broke the UMCA 100 mile World Record October 6, 2007 in Kaneville, Illinois, by beating the existing mark of 4:01 set by Marko Baloh.
Dan cranked out a 3:56:03 !!!!!!
Details will follow, and the UMCA has yet to certify the record, (S.O.P.) and the two officials that were there are filing the papers and have signed off on the time.
Please join me in a heartfelt Congratulations to Dan – – he deserves it.
Good looking out HD!
And, can anyone guess what HD stands for?
Update: HD chimes in.

Thanks for the shout-out Mort.
Needless to say – It was wicked hard. It is a 18.4 mile loop, which makes for 5.4 times around, and the last 8 mile stretch was a headwind – as if the damn thing wasn’t hard enough already. Started hard with a 26.1 average on the first loop and hit the 50 mile at around 1:50. This time, as opposed to July, I didn’t crash and burn in the last 40 miles. Had a 25.4 mph average and if I tell you what my heart rate was, I’d have to kill you.
Gotta give a shout out to Snake for his advice with the altitude sleeping – it seemed to work perfect. Also, next time you see Bryce up at AZ Cycles in Flag, give him a big kiss and hug for all the help he provided me – he’s a great guy and really behind the team.
Attached are a couple pictures. Had and interview with the local paper – she said she would get the RideClean, Clif Bar and Fiberwise in the article (pending the editor of course)
You the and all that. Full stop.by
