The 50 miler included 7000 feet of climbing and the 100 miler about 14,000 feet of climbing. The 50 miler was good enough for me as I had just completed the Vapor Trail 125 two weeks prior. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it. HA!
Newbies to the event had a chance to enjoy the descent down Bear Creek which is like being in a pinball machine. Good times. Dana Ernst from Flagstaff had some choice words for me after he finished up the 50 miler on his single speed. LOL!!!
The 2014 Edition of the RICO 50/100 is in the books. Perfect, perfect, perfect weather!!!! Thanks to everyone that came out to play in the San Juan’s.
