PHOTO GALLERY thanks to Robert Sarmiento.

Course was the usual from beginning of bike lane at the bottom to sign and flashing light at the top.  About 1.4 miles and 400 feet of climbing.  Weather was sunny and pleasant with no wind.  The pavement was dry but with one fairly short slippery section part way up from some sort of spilled material.  Click here for event flyer.

Thanks to Michael Leventhal for organizing this event, leading the warm-up and cool-down skates, and the seaside brunch afterwards.  Thanks to Joe Prescott for shuttling people and gear up and down the hill and doing the finish line timing.

King of Torrey Pines:

Race #1:
In the first race athletes started at 30 second intervals, with the people expected to be fastest starting last.  In some respects that made it a handicap race and there was a lot of passing throughout the climb.  Lots of athletes ended up crossing the finish line at the top at the same time so it was not possible to record accurate results.  For those interested in trying to figure out results of  race number 1, click here.
