    Vapor Trail 125 Results

    A new women's course record has been set, 16 hours 35 minutes by Jari Kirkland of Crested Butte, CO. Wendy Lyall of Aspen came in at 17 hours 8 minutes, which would have been a course record if Jari hadn't crushed it so decisively. Cat Morrision of Durango came in at 18 hours, 1 minute which was only 26 minutes off the previous record. We had a super strong women's field this year with five women starting and five women finishing. Congratulations to all of them!

    Josh Tostado's 2012 men's course record stands at 12 hours 42 minutes, but this years first rider, Jesse Jakomait from Colorado Springs, CO came impressively close to the record with a finish at exactly 13 hours. Neil Beltchenko of Crested Butte, CO came in five minutes after Jesse after leading for much of the ride. Christian McCarthy of Boulder, CO rolled in half an hour after Neil at 13 hours, 35 minutes.

    Every one of the 66 who lined up deserve credit for taking on a true challenge, each one of them gave it a huge effort. Congratulations to all of them.

    You did AWESOME Neil. You're just a young pup. Jesse has been playing this game for a lo-o-o-ng time. You have decades to perfect your craft. Ultra-endurance performance seems to peak in the 30's and often keeps going well into the 40's and beyond. You have decades of growth and improvement ahead of you.

    Very impressive ride.

    Cool write-up too.

    Thanks for being part of the show.
