Soldotna’s Adam Reimer won the Soggy Bottom 100 mountain bike race on Saturday. Racers start in Hope and take the Resurrection Pass trail to Cooper Landing. They then turn back to Hope, but on the way back they take the Devil’s Pass trail down and up from the pass to make it a 100-miler.

There were a number of different race categories, something the Clarion did not make clear in its initial publishing of results.

Reimer won the 100-mile solo male race at 9 hours, 1 minute. Chaz MiMarzio of Seward was second at 9:12 and Kevin Murphy of Palmer was third at 9:51.

In the 100-mile solo female, Anchorage swept the top three spots, with Jill Simek winning at 11:14:58, Amber Bethe taking second at 11:35 and Christina Grande nabbing third at 12:28.

There also was a 100-mile relay. Speedway Threesome won at 9:04, Samurai Cereal Killers were second at 9:53:56 and Quick and Dirty was third at 10:09.

There also was an 85-mile category. The women’s winner in this category was Anchorage’s Meredith Noble at 9:06.

Editor’s note: This story has been changed to accurately reflect the different race categories in this event. The Clarion regrets any confusion the initial listing may have caused.
