Riders: Dylan Johnson (2nd Overall)
Dylan traveled to southern Virginia on July 15 to take on the Iron Mountain 100k. Here's his report:
I lined up with Sam Koerber and a number of other fast riders. Koerber put in a huge effort and he dropped me the first climb.The eventual third place rider, Brian Sheedy(x-pro road racer) went with Sam and they were able to work together on the flat road sections while I was left to solo it. Looking back on it now I realize that I probably should have gone a little over my limit to stay with Sam. I don't know if it would have changed the result though because the finish was a downhill and Sam has a full suspension and skills. Sam dropped Brian about 3/4 of the way through and I caught and dropped Brian shortly there after. Great race. More climbing than Stoopid 50 but the single track wasn't as technical.
Results are available here.
