18 Hours of Fruita Results
Kris wins Fruita with 29 laps! Dereck Fish also wins, and the best part is that he thought he got second until after the race was over. What a great race for everyone. I loved being a cheerleader and spectator. The course got muddy at times with some on and off raining. On her last lap, Kris had to carry her bike since it wouldn't pedal and pushing it just picked up more mud. Anyone who rides in this area knows how it gets when it rains here, so you can only imagine the conditions of the course with 70+ teams. They re-routed the course towards the end of the race, knocking a mile off of it. Congrats to all who came out and raced, it was a great day. Soon after it ended there was a huge opening in the sky with hail and pouring rain; it came not a moment too soon.
