Report

Things are heating up in the Women's competition with the return of Robin Betz, last year's second place overall finisher who nudged out last year's winner, Jamie Yang Pong this week by 7 seconds! We are excited to hopefully watch another exciting rivalry play out in the weeks to come. Also congrats to Kate Bergeron for rounding off the podium!

In the men's competition, big congratulations to James Nicol for this week's win and Keisuke Otsuka and Bill Laddish for rounding off the podium. Similar to the rivalry with Jamie and Robin, appears like we had a close battle between Bill (last year's third place finisher) and Yassine (last year's second place), with Bill getting the 7 second advantage, perhaps also out for revenge...(although they are on the same team this year!?).

Shout out to Frank Drobot, Craig Sanders, and James Nicol for setting the best time on Strava ever in their respective age categories.
