It was Houghton's third win overall on the historic mountain race. New-comer Chris Peverada (aka Lingrini) showed his talent, finishing second place overall in his first race at altitude and his first race for the Dukes. Loren Wohletz made a huge jump in the race with a four minute personal best on the race course, as he prepares for his first 100-miler later this September in Utah. Jesse Armijo pushed the pace early on, but was forced to run conservatively through the more treacherous sections in light of his selection for the US team, which competes in Canada in two short weeks.
