Early this morning our first finishers crossed the finish line at 13th and Eastman in Hyde Park. Huge congrats to Blake Bockius of Truckee, CA and Brian Pal, hailing from Seattle, WA. These two class acts crossed the finish line nearly together and have set a very high bar for the Smoke ‘n’ Fire 400 race!! Great job!!
Tyson was at the finish and provided coverage…..
“There was no sprint to the finish this morning at 3:52 a.m. as Brian Pal was declared the winner by Blake Bockius. They were greeted by empty streets and Clancy Anderson, John Post and myself. Both riders were in good spirits though quite knackered. Please excuse the terrible pics, but it was early and on an old iPhone. ”
