Each of these routes are almost entirely dirt, with little or no liaison. Average high temperature for Pahrump in August is 100F, 38C, yikes!

On the Bishop-Dumont day they'll hit a high altitude of 9636ft (2937m), and a low altitude of -213ft (-65m) BELOW sea level in Death Valley, all in about a 2 to 3 hour period. That should be a good stress test on the bikes and riders!
Could be a decent liaison both ends if they decide to ride from LA - unless they are flying into Vegas
