Mark Allen of Phoenix is out on his second day of his Holiday Time Trial on the 2012 Stagecoach 400 route.
He’s joined by Andrew Hoyer of Bakersfield, and one other rider.
Mark’s tracker is registered on the Trackleaders page and can be followed in real time here.
The riders are carrying both the old route file, and the new one. Mark’s ITT will be on the old route.
Andrew stopped in the shop Friday to talk route details and joined us for beer (bravo!) and tacos at the Lumber Mill. They all joined up and departed early Saturday morning.
They made good time through Coyote Canyon down to Borrego Springs, and appear to have spent their first night in Fish Creek wash, near Split Mountain.
Conditions in the wash are likely good, with the area having received rain recently and likely not *too much* OHV traffic. The mountains have some snow, especially on north faces. Overnight temps at elevation have been in the upper 20’s and low 30’s. Brrr!!
