July 24th 2010, 30 brave souls, some of whom raced last year, some who were new- came to test their legs and try their luck at what is a difficult race indeed. By one rider’s GPS, it consists of 3000 feet of elevation gain over the 44 mile course. This was the second annual Tour de Watertower, longer than last year, and with much hotter weather (last year it rained and hailed.) After working through the paperwork, we’ve got some results.
The top riders came in with great times
1st place: Mens: 2 hours 27 minutes, 34 seconds: Evan “DJ Stroky”:
2nd place Mens: 2 hours 39 minutes, 48 seconds: Charlie O.
3rd place Mens: 2 hours 43 minutes, 24 seconds: Max S.
1st place Womens: 3 hours 27 minutes: Jessica W.
DFL (also 1st fendered bike): 4 hours 36 minutes: Professor Dave
Times are listed below.
Thanks to Zac at Cascade Bicycle Studio for hosting the event at his shop, where we screened the Tour de France before and after the race as well as the prizes that he donated. A “Job well done” to all that attempted, and especially those who completed this difficult course. We hope to see you back next year! Also a big thank you to the volunteers that were at the checkpoints, keeping track of times and riders.
