Breaking Bad Duathlon

The inaugural Breaking Bad Dirt Duathlon came off with nobody lost, nobody run over by an ATV, nobody shot and everybody was happy except maybe Joel who was leading in the run until he pulled up lame.

David Stuart had the 5th best run time then kicked in the jets to pass everybody on the bike and win with a nice gap. Michelle Oberndorf was solid throughout for 1st place woman and 5th overall. David and Michelle won unique trophies made from Breaking Bad materials found on the course. Congrats! Chris Sovacool had the best run time. Nikki and Jay Sturrock won the team division. Zenon Reece was youngest at 15 and had a solid finish and Ray Jensen won the Spirit Award for being totally in the spirit of it all! Most agreed it was a challenging course but     after fighting the headwind and the grade out to the high point     thought it was a ripper return largely in the fun zone. A lot of the course used old routes from Dr. Paul Wubben's Desert Championships 15K Run (including the skinny gulley!) so thanks to him for inspiration as well as to Larry Ingram who staged a Do It In The Dirt Duathlon out there many years ago. It was a good idea itching to be reborn!
