24 Hours of Great Glen & 72 Hours of RECOVERY!

So myself, Sean Rudzinsky, Jeff Landry, and Nate Lanchance are back and recovering from a LONG weekend of serious racing & fun!

This past weekend, we went up to the Great Glen trails at the base of Mt. Washington for their 16th annual 24 hour mountain bike race. What a BLAST! We raced the men's expert class as a 4 man team and managed to snag 2nd place in the expert class and 7th overall. As a team, we rode 257.3 miles and climbed 36,375 feet. To put it in perspective, all four of us raced about 3/4 of a cyclocross season in a 24 hour time period!

Needless to say, we are all exhausted and plan on spending the rest of the week recovering. I am going to be heading down to the beach (I know it's raining) for a little surf trip, so Steve Wallbridge, Jen Audia, Dan Walker and Christin are going to be running the show until next week.

It looks like today is going to be a wash out, but if the rain breaks, Dan and Steve will be leading the group out.

Stay tuned to the blog for the Wednesday rides & Thursday mountain bike ride. And also keep your eyes peeled for the full race report from Christin.

See you all soon!


  1. Sounds fun, glad to hear you all made it! This is the first year in 6 years that I have not done a 24 hour race, for those of you who have not done one, give it a try, you will never forget it!

  2. Nice race. Did you guys have a mechanical problem on lap 19? I recall seeing that blip on Sunday and thinking you would have almost certainly moved up a spot or two in the overall.
