I just had the fastest day in my life. 8:18. 55 minutes faster than my previous best.

I’m happy. In shock. Incoherent.

The Hammer’s still out on the course, but I’m told she’s having a great race too. I’ll post again when she gets in.

    That’s incredible! Job well done, Elden. And congrats on your new ride!

    Congratulations. By the look of your face in the picture, remember there is no shame in crying. That’s something you’ve been chasing for awhile.

    I was going to shout like Centurion, but I’ll just quietly say . . . Wow. Am I fickle if I abandon Superfly love for Stumpy love? (as if it’s about the bike)

  5. Comment by John S | 08.13.2011 | 3:25 pm

    Wear that buckle with pride Fatty! Great work!

    Hopefully you are really going to keep this bike…

    Although, I may be tempted into donating a few bucks to the LA Foundation to get ahold of sub 9 Hr bike. ;>)

    Great Job!

  6. Comment by Math In Mtl | 08.13.2011 | 3:31 pm

    That smile on your face says it all. Real happy for you. You’ve been chasing that elusive sub-9 for so many years, to see you go out and beat it by 55 min. Wow! You can be proud.

  7. Comment by KanyonKris | 08.13.2011 | 3:31 pm

    YEEAAAHHHH! Way to rock and roll! And not just sub-9, sub 8.5!!!!

  8. Comment by Marshall Miller | 08.13.2011 | 3:34 pm

    Absolutely fantastic! I followed you throughout the race and was excited to see how well you were doing. You must have killed it on that last segment! Even though I’m a roadie, not a MTBer, you’ve totally inspired me to get out there and take it to the next level.

    Way to go, Fatty! YOU ROCK! Here’s hoping for a fantastic finish for The Hammer as well.

  9. Comment by Math In Mtl | 08.13.2011 | 3:34 pm

    Actualy beat it by 42 min. And beat your best by 55 min.

    Way to go man! You rocked it! You not only beat that 9 hour mark, you destroyed it!

  12. Comment by dave | 08.13.2011 | 3:37 pm

    Good job man, I knew you could do it. Now go buy yourself a big fat belt to with the buckle.

  13. Comment by Tiffany | 08.13.2011 | 3:40 pm

    I mostly read, rarely comment, but just had to say congratulations!

  14. Comment by Lime Crush | 08.13.2011 | 3:40 pm

    I knew you could do it, Fatty! Or, at least, I was pretty certain you could drop a sub-9. You may have exceeded my expectations by about 40 minutes …

    Now on to the tech discussion: I could be wrong, but I bet the frame wasn’t as big a factor in the equation as was your component choice, i.e. the fact that you actually rode a bike with more than one gear this year. I s’pose the fact that you’re in wicked good shape might have something to do with it too.

    Either way, congratulations on achieving this goal after all of these years. You’ve certainly earned it.

  15. Comment by Lonster | 08.13.2011 | 3:40 pm

    Amazing ride. Enjoy the endorphin rush! Congratulations.

  16. Comment by SteveH | 08.13.2011 | 3:43 pm

    From another ‘reads lots, rarely comments guy’ – Well done! And to go that far under 9 hours is fantastic!

    That is incredible. I can see the joy on your face. Congratulations, I knew you could do it.

  21. Comment by MattC | 08.13.2011 | 3:55 pm

    Holy CRAPSICKLES! Fatty…that is an INCREDIBLE time! I knew you were strong this year…but quite honestly I wouldn’t have thought THAT strong…dude…you did PHENOMENAL! Congrats…on your efforts, AND… on the new bike!

    See! GEARS! Gears are AMAZING! Of course, it’s probably your SS’ing that helped MAKE you this strong…but gears are your friend! Embrace the gears! (Your knees will love you as you get older!)

    Loved the pic too btw…THAT is the look of a man who has reached a LONG standing goal. CRUSHED it even. Squished it between your finger and thumb like a tiny insignificant insect. I bow in your general direction! You are DA MAN!

  22. Comment by Snowcatcher | 08.13.2011 | 3:55 pm

    Woohoohoohoohoo! Huge congrats!!!

  23. Comment by davidh-marin,ca | 08.13.2011 | 3:56 pm

    Congratulations Fatty!!!! Wear the buckle when you climb Alp D’Huez later this month. It’s a time trial, right?
    I’m with ‘Limecrush’. It’s the man not the machine.

    Again, my compliments. Hope you bring the buckle to the Gran Fondo so we can all rub it for luck.

  24. Comment by guerch | 08.13.2011 | 4:00 pm

    Great job fatty! I hope you planning on returning all the dirt on your face to the trail..you aren’t suppose to take half the trail home with you….just saying’.

    and btw i love your blog and supporting your causes.

    umm what is the caloric intake of the dust you inhaled? but aside from being a dirty man… umm.. awesome very good race.

  28. Comment by Jenn | 08.13.2011 | 4:03 pm

    Holy crap! The Hammer is in and crushed it, too!!! I think she deserves a new rig, too! Congrats, Lisa! 8th in your division is AMAZING!

  29. Comment by Meredith S | 08.13.2011 | 4:09 pm

    Awesome! Congrats on sub 9 and the bike! I agree with the man over machine comments. I think you would have done it on your trusty old single speed if you had chosen that option too. Maybe next year!

    Great job my friend

  31. Comment by Anonymous | 08.13.2011 | 4:12 pm

    Congrats to both of you! I think I see now why you gain weight on these rides. If the outside looks like that how much dirt did you inhale or swallow? Hope the IT guy is on the mend, too. Next year IT guy.

  32. Comment by Boz | 08.13.2011 | 4:13 pm

    Great job crushing your projected time….BY A MILE!

  33. Comment by Bicycle Bill | 08.13.2011 | 4:14 pm

    That’s frackin’ AWESOME!!! A century — on dirt — and you came this close (visualize fingers held about a half-inch apart) to cracking the 8-hour barrier!

    I’d hate to tell you what my last century time was …. and that was on pavement, yet. I gotta start riding more.


  34. Comment by YYC_Andrew | 08.13.2011 | 4:15 pm

    Just peeked back and saw the HAMMER’s time…holy schmoley! You two rock! Contrats Lisa!!

    Also, when things settle down some, maybe an update on IT guy…(including the new pic of the shoulder..w/ plate and screws please).

    Sheesh..what’s next on the agenda for you two??

  42. Comment by Zach Collett | 08.13.2011 | 4:39 pm

    CONGRATS to you and The Hammer!! That’s awesome. I have heard many a nightmare about Leadville. Look forward to the new pics!
    Now that you have the new bike you should auction off your Superfly and obviously proceeds go to your charity of choice, Livestrong, Zambia, WWP as a few ideas.
    Conragts again for rocking it out!!! Cheers.

  43. Comment by Mike | 08.13.2011 | 4:42 pm

    Congratulations, Elden! What a fantastic accomplishment. I am so pleased for you.

    So now we can ask the Devil in the details question?

    Fatty set out to break 9hrs, ‘geared’ the road taken, the SS left behind. Has anyone asked The Hammer what she will think of Fatty’s new slendered quads?

  54. Comment by Angela | 08.13.2011 | 5:53 pm

    So now that you have the Stumpy, on which you are obviously fast and I am sure dashing, you probably don’t need that Superfly any more right? (hint, hint)

    Congrats again!

  83. Comment by Jacob | 08.13.2011 | 9:00 pm

    That is just so fantastic! I was watching your progress and knew you were going to pull out the sub 9, but then I headed out to ‘audit’ a friend’s camping trip in Winters with no cell reception, and couldn’t see the finish! You and Lisa are simply amazing! Congratulations! :)

    Ditto to everything congratulatory above. Further, your time was so good that no one could possibly think the bike was the reason you were sub-9. (I believe you, or possibly another commenter, mentioned as a concern at one point.)You would have broken 9 hours on BikeSnob’s Big Dummy!

    After following Leadville yesterday I found today a tad boring…went for a bike ride.
    I did notice that the low tech Jones kid that lives near you said he was glad he didn’t catch you. So I looked up Kenny’s stats. SHEESH sub-9 for at least six yrs in a row AND probably riding an old steel upgraded mtn bike too. Rode SS with 34×18 means he didn’t gain much speed above gravity on the flats & downhills. All you guys & gals that ride together are beyond words.

    Congrats! What was your final racing weight? How many egg white and avacado things did you eat before the race?

    I hope you take this the right way, and take it to heart. It’s about time that fatty fights like Susan. She’d be proud.

    …and I expected to have to endure 3 segments of race reports to get to the final result. Congrats!

    Hey Fatty,
    Great great job on Leadville. One day I’d like to try both the mountain bike and the trail run. You rocked that race though. Its so funny Tyson was with you, he is a really good friend of mine. We grew up swimming together and have biked and trained together many times since he came back from europe from Pro road racing. Anyway will you call me I have a few questions for ya.
    Thanks stud,
