A cool morning turned into a hot day, as 26 teams enjoyed some beautiful terrain. Racers only saw a couple hundred meters of pavement during the entire race, and we only saw a few people who were not involved in the race (many of the competitors probably didn't see any of them). The top two teams (WEDALI and Rib Mountain Racing) went back and forth all day, only separated by a few minutes, but a nav error on the final control cost Rib Mountain the overall win. However, the Rib Mountain Racing team leader had the dubious honor of getting to use their first aid kit when he head butted a branch (and the branch won). It's a good thing the first aid kit was mandatory equipment!
Full race results are shown below, and you can view detailed split information at Attackpoint. NOTE: the splits at Attackpoint only include the controls which came in a required sequence: prologue, all TAs, and both bike sections. The placing shown on Attackpoint does not reflect the official order of finish.
