The last Stage 6 was 4,900 ft in elevation gain over 20.9 miles. Nothing was easy here. Skye and Ann consistently kept in 1st place again over this punishing course. It couldn't have been any better---Congratulations Badass Mommas.
Stage 5 is on the books. The Dadass Mommas took the stage and gained 26 minutes more. Over 23.6 miles with 4,200 ft.gain, these girls ran from 8,700 ft to 11,701 ft and back on tough trails in less than 5 hours. Also, they bathed into the vistas and took pictures too. Don't ever challenge them to anything--PERIOD.
Ann and Skye took 1st place in Stage 4 which started from 9.200 ft. to 11,678 ft. and there was 2,900 ft. over 14.1 miles. The Mommas gained 10 minutes and lead by 39 minutes overall. Tomorrow will be Stage 5 spanning 23.6 miles over 4,200 ft. gain. I have a feeling they are ready for it.
Team Two InknBurn Badass Mommas, Skye Colclough and Ann Ongena, bounced back from a second place Stage 2 finish to notch their second win of the week in the 80+ Women’s division of Stage 3. Their time of 4:40:55 placed them seven minutes ahead of Kim Kortz and Megan Anderson and widened their overall lead to 28:59. Stage 3 climbed 2 peaks to almost 11,000 ft.over 24.2 miles with an elevation gain of 2,800 ft. Lookin'Good.
The Mommas are still holding their 22 minute advantage after Stage 2. The team of Megan Anderson and Kim Kortz won Stage 2 by 2 seconds over Ann and Skye. This was a very tough 13.3 mile course. The first 7+ miles gained 3,250 ft. and was reached at 12,536 ft elevation --Ouch! Hope Pass is a fitting eponym. This is so exciting--here is the Stage Post 2.
Ann and Skye had an awesome start in Stage 1 Women 80+ of the TransRockies. The stage covered 20.9 miles with 2,550 ft of elevation, and they started at 7,900 ft. to 9,300 ft and back to 8,300 ft. You are rockin'. See the posted stages each day.
