Age/Gender compensated results. Note that these results are calculated using research data demonstrating differences in gender, and decline as we age. This puts the entire field of riders on an even playing field so we all compete against one another fairly. In this scenario, we often see a very strong Masters male or female rider taking the overall. But in this year's Nifty, we had two insanely strong young riders, Justin Peck, 19 and Dylan Fryer, 21. Despite some very accomplished Masters riders, nobody could dethrone these two. Hats off to them both for a brilliant ride on the Nifty 2022!

After a two year hiatus due to Covid, the Nifty Ten Fifty came back strong for the 19th version on April, 2, 2022. We had approximately 80 riders show up for the event, and a strong field it was! This ride is extremely difficult due to the amount of climbing and the steepness of many of the grades. But riders suffered through it and many enjoyed the sense of accomplishment after finishing at Vollmer Peak. The partnership with Sports Basement worked out well, and I hope to expand the offerings next year and beyond.

This year we had the youngest rider ever to complete the ride, Alex T., and I had the pleasure of riding with her all day to witness the milestone! We started well after most riders had left, but still caught a few on the course and leap frogged the rest of the day with these hearty souls! Thanks to everyone coming out and riding safe!

Some finishers at Vollmer Peak including Mr. Nifty (far right) and 13 year old Alex T. (third from right).

Below are some prelim results for the three timed climbs on the Nifty Ten Fifty 2022. I'll have a write-up on the event, photos, overall results for both men and women, and also age/gender adjusted results to see who are the stars when those factors are considered. We will also crown an overall winner of the event in the age/gender adjusted category, keeping in mind that this is NOT a race but rather a challenge. If you have photos you'd like to share, please provide a link or send photos to me either at or Five One Oh-409-8873. Thanks to all for coming out and riding!

KOM Results for Thorndale Ave. Note that we had an issue on the timing of this segment. Because there is a sharp haipin at the top near the finish, some riders tripped the GPS finish too soon. So I had to adjust the segment slightly to alleviate this issue. Correct results below:

Below are the Age/Gender adjusted results for Marin Ave which puts all participants on an even playing field, no matter what age or gender. What's interesting here is that our two fastest riders still hold the top spots. But they were originally tied and since Justin Peck is younger at 19, he gets a slight adjustment putting him in the lead!
