There was a fierce battle at this year's Western States 100 mile, the grand daddy of ultrarunning in the mountains of California.
Tony Krupicka, Geoff Roes and Kilian Jornet challenged for the lead throughout the day, with Alaskan Roes taking the win with an extraordinary new course record of 15 hours, 7 minutes. Second was Krupicka, also under the former course record at 5:13.
Check out Krupicka's site and dramatic race photos. This says it all. The big boys at play. The bodies of warriors at a pace that isn't even comprehensible.
Enough said, enjoy:
