Sawtooth Challenge 2011

Hey, before we say anything, maybe check out the photo album here and here. Then take a look at the race results here.

This year’s Sawtooth Challenge happened on a wonderful day. August 27, 2011 was sunny and not too hot.

Glowingly beautiful August North Shore morning!

The race got underway at 10:00 a.m. Tim was the pace rider out of town until the snow mobile trail just north of the new Gunflint Trail road. From then on the riders raced up the hill to the Pincushion parking lot, then on to the stadium area. Once there, they broke out into the three classes Expert, Sport, and Citizen. The Sport Class included two loops of the main outer Pincushion Trail for a total of 15 miles, the Expert three loops for 21 miles.

Colin Pendziwol, of the Black Sheep Mountain Bike Club, Thunder Bay was our Expert Class winner.

Doug Osborn of Decorah, Iowa won the Sport Class with a time of 1:41:15.

Times were comparable to last year’s.
