Alta, Wyoming – Amanda Carey of Kenda-Felt continued her dominance of the National Ultra Endurance Series this weekend, taking the win at the Pierre’s Hole 100, and beating her nearest rival by over an hour and a half. Carey, the defending NUE Series Champion, covered the 100 mile course in 9:12 which would have gotten her a top ten in the men’s race.
Carey, who lives in nearby Victor, Idaho, was able to capitalize on her knowledge of the Grand Targhee Resort. With nearly 4000 feet of climbing on each of the four laps, Carey was able to put significant time gaps on both the descents and the power sections. Taking the lead from the gun, Carey blasted away from her rivals, and began picking her way through the men’s field. With the win, Carey solidifies her bid for a second consecutive NUE overall title.
Fellow Kenda-Felt rider Judy Freeman also emerged victorious this weekend, taking the win at Blast from the Mass XC in Snowmass, Colorado. Part of the Mountain States Cup Series, the XC event was a grueling race that lasted nearly 2 hours. Freeman crossed the line 38 seconds ahead of her nearest rival. On the men’s side, Colin Cares of Kenda-Felt also had a solid race at the Blast from the Mass Short Track event with a third place finish.
Additionally, Tristan Schouten of Mafia Racing won the Battle of Camrock in Rockdale, Wisconsin. The Battle of Cam Rock is part of the Wisconsin Off Road Series - a series that Schouten won last year, and has dominated through seven races so far in 2011. Schouten attacked the field when a summer rain storm hit the course, and was able to hold his lead to the finish. With the win, Schouten claimed his fifth win of the WORS series and extended his series lead to 29 points.
