More than 600 cyclists participate in Hot Hundred - TUSCALOOSA | Saturday's Hot Hundred ride wasn't scorching hot like previous years. Instead, it was a cool, overcast day with a little rain, but the rain didn't bother the nearly 630 cyclists who showed up to ride. They welcomed the cooler weather. “This (weather) is better than a 105 that we've ridden in before,” Tuscaloosa native Danny Stamps said. Stamps, along with friends Todd Hollingsworth and Peter Schoger, were the first men to complete the century ride, 103 miles, finishing with a time of four and a half hours. They have come to the Hot Hundred almost every year. “It's just a good ride and plus, it's home,” Hollingsworth said. Although the rain and clouds meant cooler temperatures for the riders, Tony Robbins of Birmingham was wary of how the rain could affect his ride. “Well, you lose your brakes,” Robbins said. “I don't necessarily like it, but it can sure cool things off.” Robbins also completed the century ride. He dealt with a flat front tire for the last two miles, which prevented him from keeping up with leaders Schoger, Stamps and Hollingsworth. Terri Sullivan of Shelby also enjoyed the cooler weather and liked being able to keep up with the men as she completed the century ride. Sullivan, who normally trains on her own, said she enjoyed the company during the ride. “The guys were the nicest guys I've ever ridden with,” Sullivan said. “They let me tag along. “I don't have a group that I ride with so I come to these things and I never know anybody, but they were very kind and they let me get in their little packs and draft.” Sullivan also participated in the Hot Hundred three years ago. She said Saturday's ride was her fastest century, with a time of four hours and 37 minutes. Sullivan, like Robbins, had to deal with bike malfunctions during the ride. “I was with them right until ... my chain fell off,” Sullivan said. “I had to get off my bike and put my chain back on. So I lost the pack, but up until then, I was with the pack.” Newcomer to the Hot Hundred, Barbara Purry, came from Montgomery to compete with her boyfriend. Purry began cycling in March because of her boyfriend. She completed 52 miles on Saturday. “That's the farthest I've gone ever,” Purry said. “It was hard towards the end. The first forty (miles), fine, but the last seven or so, wow.” Almost all of Saturday's 630 participants were impressed with the Hot Hundred's volunteers and race organizers. “The course was so well marked, I usually do these rides and I get lost,” Sullivan said. “They've just done a great job with this. It's really fun.” Twenty-three veterans from the Wounded Warriors Project from Forts Benning and Gordon also participated in the event. 20885
