Dispatch from UTMB

So far, we have results from the OCC, TDS and PTL, with some impressive performances despite hot, punishing conditions. Here are the podiums.

With the CCC underway now for three-and-a-half hours at this writing, we have a few moments to quickly update you on the other races that have finished. Well, the 145K TDS and 56K OCC races wrapped up yesterday, while, aside from the first- and second-place teams, the crazies of the PTL—the two- or three-person 300K event with 80,000 feet of ascending—are going to wild places, in the mountains and in their minds!
