Southern Utah has some burly, technical, and trying trails. That's why the True Grit 100 is not an ordinary long distance mountain bike race. It has your quintessential pedal-intensive sections, but then race organizers also throw in the infamous Zen Trail and other classic rocky segments to push riders to their limits in skill and endurance. One of our FBR Viceroys, Alex Leonard, took 3rd in the Men's 50 Sport Class (Hell yeah, Alex!).

Chase Edwards once again put in her best effort with a 5th place finish in the Women's Pro 100 on her new Giant Anthem Advanced. Erin Osborne took 6th in the Open Pro 50 on her Liv Pique Advanced. She shaved 24 minutes off of her time from last year's race thanks to intensified training from Adam Cornette and Rideology Coaching. She finished in 4 hours and 17 minutes. They all concluded their adventure with a recovery ride the day after the race - way to push it, guys!
