After almost an entire week of non-stop racing, the top teams have finally crossed the finish line at Primal Quest Badlands. Final results are still unofficial but it appears that OrionHealth has taken the top podium spot by racing out front the entire race. Salomon/Crested Butte came across the line second several hours back and should hold onto that spot once time credits and penalties have been awarded. Merrell/Zanfel Adventure came across the line third but it is unclear if they will hold the last podium spot due to an interesting take on the rules of the swim.
Many more teams will continue to finish up racing today and tomorrow. Six hundred miles of continuous racing is super tough and all of these teams should be proud of themselves. I think it’s a good thing I’ve been home enjoying short trail runs and road rides with Juniper.
