Sweet repeat, sweet victory

Sunday, 7 October

Way to go, Michael! Mr. Alpine Ibex Emde won the Furnace Creek 508 for the second year in a row with a time of 27 hours 32 minutes. He averaged 18.46 mph. The guy in second place was about 1.5 hours behind him. Truly incredible.

Not all the results are in yet (meaning, not all the riders are in yet), but you can find 'em here.

Late addition: Karen Armstrong, also of Spokane, was the first woman to finish the 508. Her time was 36:58, and she was THREE HOURS ahead of second place. What's in the water over there in Spokane??? Way to go Karen!

Even later addition: I just realized the key to success must be that awesome Emde Sports coaching!!
