Leadville and Winter Park Updates

Amanda Carey took 2nd place at the Leadville 100 on Saturday, August 14th. This year was an epic battle for the top spot which carried on most of the race. After being attacked in the feed zone, Amanda spent the next few hours making up ground on the 10 minute gap. She was undone by a flat tire on a downhill section which sealed the 2nd place finish. Still, she managed a top 50 overall (men and women) and beat her previous best times finishing the 100 miler in just over 8 hours.

In men's racing, Colin Cares won the Mary Jane Circuit Race in Winter Park, CO which was contested on August 14th. This win adds to Colin's season of podium finishes. His next event is the Breck Epic Stage Race
