Wright Races Fatbike Nationals, Other results so far

The ever-intrepid Rhonda Wright scored another excellent result in Cable, Wisconsin Saturday with a fantastic finish at the Fat Bike Birkie. Her husband Jamie wrote on Facebook:

So. While I was in Colorado with some pals goofing off this weekend, my wife raced the fat bike nationals in Wisconsin. She drove herself there, had lodging, raced, and drove herself home. All unassisted from any others. The chick crushed it. She raced the long course ( 47k) and finished 13th overall in women. 4th in her age group. Considering this is the premier snow bike race in the Midwest, or country for that matter, I’d say she did an outstanding job. To finish that race in that time completely unsupported is phenomenal. Props to her for the achievement. It is the reward for all the work she has put in. Great job!

We agree with Jamie, great job.

Rhonda, Tony Kavan, and Jerry Hoff have more race results so far this year, with some great finishes.

Gravel Worlds 2013

Kevin Fox and Tony Kavan stepped up to the challenge of Gravel Worlds, the annual 150+ mile test of strength in and around Lincoln. Kavan succumded to the overpowering heat and humidity posting this:

Gravel Worlds

Gravel Worlds

“Sorry guys, I DNF’d at Gravel Worlds today. I made it 104 miles and was having some pretty severe heat related issues, despite the amount of fluid I took in, it wasn’t enough. ┬áThe nausea and cramping were bad, but when I started to have muscle spasms, that was when I called it a day…”

Fox, on the other hand, called up the strength to finish the race despite being sick earlier in the week. Kevin finished 47th in the Open Men, ad 78th overall.

Kavan Conquers Alaska

…but Alaska bites back!

Tony Kavan traveled to Alaska to take on the Fireweed 200, the “Race Across Alaska.” The race took place on July 13 and started in Sutton, Alaska. According to Tony:

“Finished the fireweed 200 in 13.5 hours. We were on-pace to come in at about 11 hours but the wind picked up and we got our brains beat in by a 20-25mph headwind for the last 70 miles. I hurt in some places. ”

While he was in Alaksa, Tony participated in the Salmon Cycle Series weekly MTB race and took second in his first MTB race.

But, as luck would have it, Tony took a digger on on a sandy descent while riding a mountain trail and injured his shoulder. He is still on schedule for racing Gravel Worlds in late August, however.
