    Breck 100 2013. crazy close finish

    Ben Sonntag beats Josh Tostado by 8 seconds! I don't know if that's the closest finish of a 100 miler or not, but it's pretty damn close, especially on a course that's as hard as the B100. Apparently Ben had the sheer speed to pass and gap Josh on the last climb up Boreas Pass Rd and Josh couldn't make it all up on the wet and rocky descent of Bakers Tank and Aspen Tunnel trails to the finish.

    Those guys missed most of the rain but most everyone else wasn't so lucky. A lot of people got absolutely hammered on on loop three.

    Well, when you consider the weather the last couple days before the race Sunday was an improvement. At least it waited till a little later in the day to open up and it kind of cleared up afterwards.

    I finished marking the course on Saturday evening and it was practically a flash flood on Indiana Creek/Boreas rd/Bakers Tank.

    8 seconds is close. But the Lumberjack 100 this year was closer...
