Taking place in the heart of the Adirondacks, just down the road from Lake Placid, this year’s Wilmington 100 drew 352 participants from all over the US and Canada. This year’s course was considered to be the toughest to date. Racers faced 2300+ metres of climbing with the addition of a nasty muddy, wet, rooted and rocky hike-a-bike section that challenged the races in the last 10k of the race after already pushing it hard for 100k.
A qualification race for the famous Leadville 100 (taking place later this August), your Duke’s Cycle Cannondale LapDogs Race Team had a highly visible presence at this event with 9 racers from the MTB Squad participating.
Your Team’s Results:
- Kate Morgan-Constable, 6th, Female, 30-39 (246th Overall)
- Gus Ryan, 63rd, Male 30-39 (238th, Overall)

Many of these racers will also be together this coming August at the Leadville 100 taking place in Colorado.
