Welcome to the Fall 2017 Team Challenge.

This was GeeWizman's original idea, I just took it over when it got too complicated, and made everyone enter their own miles.

The ideal mileage for each team was calculated to be 6805 miles (see the Calcs tab on the spreadsheet), so the handicaps necessary to bring each team to the ideal mileage were as follows:

Tornadoes -91.65
Underdogs +91.65

Please post your mileage at least once a week.

When you do post your rides please use the following format:

Ride Date
Team Name (Okay to abbreviate)
Miles Ridden
QTD Miles

If you want to change any team names, just let me know. Its just a simple update to the table.

You can find the signup thread here:

Fall 2017 Team Challenge Signup Thread

Also, if you are updating your own miles, you might find it easier to update directly on Google Docs, since on this forum jumps around a lot (drives me nuts) - use the link below:

2017 Fall Team Challenge


OK, here are the teams...

Let me get this right - we haven't recorded a single mile while the Tornados have ridden 161 miles and we are winning by 20+ miles....

We are the Overachieving Underdogs. animated-dog-image-0026Let's ride.

Yes, I suspect this will not be a tight challenge, despite what the numbers say. Just one of you has to ride each day to keep it close, and when 2 or more ride...

GW I see how they are going to beat us. If I am reading this right they rode 161.12221 miles today. They are going to beat us by logging extra thousands or 10 thousands of a decimal point miles every day.

No riding for me today. Still beat up some from my gravel ride/race on Sat. I pumped the tires up 50 psi rear and 45 psi up front to help me get some speed on the road. That helped but since I usually run 40/35 it beat me up on the rough stuff. Had a very tuff day at work today. Back on the bike tomorrow.
