Dawn til Dusk 12 Hour Race
What a throw down it was at the 12 Hours of Dawn til Dusk in Gallup, NM. Aside from a bit of wind the weather was perfect and the competition was super high. The trail system was great. A bit loose and silty but in great condition. In previous years 9 laps would be the winning number for a win in the solo single speed class. This year there were 5 solo single speeders that hit the 10 lap mark. I took 3rd with 10 laps behind Matt Turgeon and Dan Durland had the win in front of us. Some close times with any mechanical or cracking of anyone would have made all of the difference in the final outcome. Shawn Gregory won the under 40 class with 10 laps as well. Fellow teammate Lenny Goodell had a great finish this year with 9 laps to take 4th in the single speed masters class.
