2014 Trans-Sylvania Epic - Stage 2

The Trans-Sylvania Epic Stage 2 served up 67km of rocks and climbing.  In the 40+ event, Nate came out in the lead.  You can see his post race commentary here (looks like it was a very hot and dusty day):

7 bottles of fluid, zero mechanicals and flat resistant tires (X-Kings) were his keys to success in the rocks.

Nate - Post Race Interview
From the race site, a report on the day:

"In the Masters 40+ competition, Nathan Ruch (Pure Energy Scott Elite Team) displayed the strong riding that led him to his 2013 victory and succeeded in winning stage 2 by a slim margin of seven seconds over Steve Mee. Third place finisher Mike Hebe (Team Novo Nordisk) crossed the finish line just four minutes after Ruch. The tight grouping reflects strongly in the GC standings, as Ruch, Mee, and Hebe are separated by a mere three minutes in the overall competition."
