Here’s a little report from our marathon man, Cory Wallace.
Hope the weather was as nice out on the coast as it was in the Rockies this weekend. We all got a little sun burnt. Now it is hailing down sideways…
I had a good weekend up in the Rockies. XC on Saturday on the potential Nationals course was fast. Stefan Widmer, Matt Hadley and myself gapped the other 24 elites pretty decently. I was fighting Hadley on the last lap for 2nd place when I flatted and had co2 troubles. Finished 9th eventually. The marathon race the next day was a different story.
Sundays 5hr marathon was a blast. Over 230 riders. Took the win by 24 minutes on the next solo and beat the top team by 2 min. Solid outing. Kept the lap times pretty consisent throughout which gives me some confidence for 24 in July.
