Date: April 28, 2012
Result: 21st (out of of 400+)
Dylan traveled to Ducktown, TN for the opening round of the National Ultra Endurance Series 100 mile races at the Cohutta 100.
This event featured a newly revised course for 2012 with more singletrack and approximately 13,000 feet of climbing.
Dylan was out to avenge a bad crash on the gravel roads at Cohutta in 2011 that left him with cuts to his chin that required stitches. As usual, Dylan was the youngest racer at the 100 mile event!
He borrowed a rear wheel from Kevin Carter (who finished 3rd at Cohutta) prior to the start and unfortunately it turned into a tough day.

Dylan also got a mention given his status as the youngest in the field: "At age 17, the youngest rider was Dylan Johnson (Scott RC Mountain) from McLean, Virginia, who finished 21st 8:16:48. He returned to Cohutta following a brutal crash last year that earned him a trip to the ER.")
