Kyle Skaggs speeds up trail running

Kyle Skaggs destroyed the course record at this year Hardrock 100.  I was in Silverton, Colorado for two weeks acclimating for the ultimate trail race and heard rumors that Kyle wanted to finish less than 24 hours. I thought to myself no way, later I learned Kyle spent most of his summer in Silverton running the entire snow covered coarse. Once the race started Kyle took off and never looked back, paced by accomplished trail runner Nate McDowell Kyle was able to complete the course in 23:23:30. Anyone who’s finished this race is asking themselves how did he do it? 10 scrapes!!!

Kyle and Anton running Mt. Blanc? It would be nice to see USA get the podium at the largest international trail race around.. Scrape on..kyle.

Ultrarunning vs. Unicycles

Check this out, Rob Youngren new member for the 2009 Wasatch Speed Goat Mountain Racing Team cross trains on his unicycle. Don’t think this slows him down  as he trekked from the deep south to post a 10th place finish at the 2008 Hardrock 100. What’s more amazing these guys compete in 50 mile races on these single wheeled bikes.  I’ve had my share of mountain bike wrecks, imagine crashing on one of these.

Scrape on Rob!!
