Breck team wins Duathlon

LEADVILLE – The second annual Leadville High Altitude Duathlon took place last weekend in historic Leadville. Considering that the entire week before the race was both raining and snowing, it turned out on race day to be cloudless, with the temperature a comfortable 50 degrees.

This year, there were a total of 65 participants and the winners are as follows:

* Team of two winners were Greg Rosin and Eileen Brown from Breckenridge (3:31:43).

* The men’s champion was John Gilbert from Durango (3 hours, 15 minutes, 44 seconds).

* The women’s winner was Kathrin Zambrana from Steamboat Springs (3:26:49).

* Team of three winners were Team New Zealand from Denver (3:42:43).
