Racers from all over the northwest United States and beyond lined up for the 6th annual Test of Endurance 50 on Sunday, June 19 in sunny Blodgett, Oregon. For many first timers, this event lived up to the name and for those seasoned racers, this event proved to provide quite a test of holding cramps at bay while racing on the gas for 50 miles and 8,500ft of climbing over two laps each with 11 separate climbs.
At the end of the day Sean Babcock (Team S & M) took home the overall win in 3:54:04. He outlasted James Williams (Sunnyside Sports) in 4:02:15 with Ross Brody (Buy Local) on a singlespeed in the Cat. 1 30-34 division in third in 4:04:25.
