The reincarnation of a storied 24-hour mountain bike race — previously known as Montezuma’s Revenge — held Aug. 1 under the full moon on a 200-mile course spread across the Continental Divide. It was deemed the world’s most difficult trail ride during its original run from 1986 to 2007. The new edition is a bike event, not a race, but, in keeping with the spirit of the original, organizers still track times and vertical.
Here’s the recap from event director Adam Shaw:
There were no females, as Sara Boyer was ill the night before. For men, it was officially: Nick Woodland with 107.1 miles and 18,183 vertical feet in first; Bernie Romero in a very close second (was leading until he took a nap and overslept) with 105.8 miles and 17,980 vertical feet; and Scott Shirey in third with 100.8 miles and 16,083 vertical feet. Unofficially, Ken Boyer did an individual time-trial 24 hours before everyone else and achieved 115.6 miles and 19,743 feet, which would have taken first if he had rode with everyone else.
