Josh’s team wins the Firecracker 50!
Congratulations to Followbright's front-end developer Josh Petrucci on his big race win last week at the annual 4th of July Firecracker 50 Mountain Bike race in Breckenridge, CO! (And yep, 50 stands for 50 miles.)
Josh entered the race on a 2 person (all-male) team with David Overstreet; each of them rode one of the 25 mile laps.
They competed against 85 other teams in their division, most coming from around the state to compete with some out-of-staters as well!
Here's the elevation profile of Josh's day (highest point was 11,200' above sea level):
Here is a Google map showing the 25 mile loop:
Here are the final stats for the day (this includes his 45 minute warm-up before the ride, of course):
And here's a photo of the amazing big cash prize medal (actually, it's the back of the medal, that's why it says "Italy") that he won for the day's win:
Congratulations, Josh! Way to represent Followbright out there on the trails.
