KAPPIUS AND ANDERSON DOMINATE VOODOO FIRE AT PUEBLO LAKE STATE PARK
The Rocky Mountain Endurance series kicked off on Saturday at Pueblo Lake State Park with huge fields lining it up to race the 35 or 69 mile races. The half Marathon was taken by Gretchen Reeves on the women's side and the men's race was super got at the front with Brian Alders, Mark Legg Compton and Jay Henry all together after lap one, just 30 seconds separated all three racers at the finish, with Alder taking the win, Compton second, and Henry third as he tunes up for the Whiskey 50. The full Marathon was a dead heat after 46 miles but Brady Kappius was able to separate on the final technical descent and take the victory. Sari Anderson absolutely dominated the women's field winning by nearly 50 minutes on the 69 mile circuit. If you have never ridden at Pueblo Lake State Park, get down there and check it out, it's the fastest 40 miles of single track you will ever ride, for real.
