Congratulations to Erik Schlopy, Bryon Friedman, Dane Spencer, Evan Weiss and Keely Kelleherfor conquering the 24 Hours of Moab. The race is a true test of focus and endurance. The course, just under 15 miles in length, winds its way through the scenic backcountry of Utah. There are a number of drops to go along with the big climbs – even more challenging as day turns into night.
Despite some flat tires, a broken shock mount and a few other twists and turns, World Cup Dreams “Dream Team” finished in an impressive 16thplace in the 5 person co-ed division, completing 15 laps – over 223 miles with more than 20,400 feet gained in elevation.
Special thanks to Cole Sport (colesport.com) for sponsoring the team. And also to Jasmine Furnish, Alice McKennis and Marcus Caston for the amazing on-site support! We could not have done it without them.
Donations for the team’s 24 Hours of Moab race are being accepted until October 23rd. For more information or to donate visit www.raceraiser.com/pages/worldcupdreams
