The Hemet Event
Double and Single Centuries
The prevous Hemet double century wis a giant figure eight type route composed of two 100-mile loops (centuries). The start/finish and lunch were at the center of the figure eight at MOTEL 6. The 100-mile option was available for either loop. However, the first loop was a Great Beginners Century. The first loop had 3506 feet of total accumulated elevation gain spread over the entire 103-mile loop. The second loop had about 3431 feet of total accumulated elevation gain, in which 1100 feet of climbing occurred in the first 13 miles of the 97 mile loop.
The double century had a eighteen-hour soft time limit. The double century riders could start between 3:30 AM and 6:00 AM. The double century closed at 10:00 PM soft limit, but completion was/is key!
Single Century riders could start the first loop between 3:30 AM and 6:00 AM or they could start the second loop between 9:00 AM and 11:00 AM.
