Cohutta 100 Race Report

My 100th post. Fitting I guess that it is for the Cohutta 100.

Quick results: I finished in 11 hours 31 min. It was a long day in the saddle for sure. I just did not have good legs today and with over 14,000 feet of elevation gain that is one thing you need for the Cohutta.

I finally found the energy to download my Garmin 305. The battery only lasted 89 miles, so the last 11 miles of single track are missing. If you are interested, the Cohutta 100 map and data can be found at http://trail.motionbased.com/trail/activity/5480388

Everyone on the team did very well. Joey and Selby completed the 35 miler ~ 5:30. Randy did great in the 65 miler and finished ~ 5:57. Tige got just outside the top 50 and finished ~ 9:30. Eric did very well on his single speed and finished just over 11:15.

Still working on my complete race report.....

I posted some pictures on http://www.flickr.com/photos/clocke/

Good Job! That's a long time to be sitting on a bike seat. I'm glad those days are behind me :-)

WOW! Chris, I can't believe your fortitude. I mean really, spending an entire weekend with Joey? You are hard core. ;) In case Joey happens to read this and is not in the best mood (as if he were ever in a bad mood), I'm just kidding. Good job to you both. If only I still had my pink banana seat bike, then maybe I could give you all a run for your money. -jml
