Team Skaggs is running away again!
Kyle Skaggs, fresh off his win at Wasatch, and his brother mule Kyle have a 12 minute lead after the first day of racing at the Trans-Rockies 5 day stage race. Go to transrockies.com to check it out. A rare race in the U.S. Not only does it last 5 days and runs a total of 110 miles, but WOW! there actually is prize money! Somewhere in the $3000-$5000 range for the winners, and a $20,000 purse should have attracted the 150 teams allowed to race. There are only about 40 teams in this year’s inaugural event. It might be a low-key sport, but having a real prize purse usually brings the competition. We thank all the sponsors at Trans-Rockies for throwing down the cash…love to see it. Check tomorrow for the next update and see if Kyle and Erik can run away with it again. -Wahsatchspeedgoat
