This was a transitional year. The professional stage race did not take place and the tour occurred at a later date in June because of the large earthquake that damaged Ferndale in April of 1992.

1. Colin Brant (unknown time)
2. Jim Allen (unknown time)
3. David Andersen, 5:09

Gale force headwinds on the beach this year. I had ridden the Grizzly Peak Century the weekend before, a very bad idea it turned out. I felt fine but had not recovered 100%, half way through the Endless Hills I had a complete flame-out. I was sitting by the side of the road when a sag wagon came by, the people gave me a banana and an energy bar, with this I was finally able to make it to Ferndale.
