Hard ride up Galena brings out 58 cyclists

5.8-mile climb to the summit


A record 58 cyclists tested their early-season fitness Saturday in the seventh annual Galena Hill Climb on a 5.8-mile (9.39 kilometer) course from Galena Lodge to the summit.

Durance Cycleworks of Ketchum and Lehman Brothers presented the first event of the Durance time trial series that includes the U.S. Cycling Federation-sanctioned Idaho District Time Trial Championships June 23 south of Bellevue.

Race winner Richard Feldman (21 minutes and 34 seconds) of Durance/Lehman squeaked under the finish line a mere three seconds faster than young hot shot Cody Peterson of Scott USA (21:37).

Top female was Women's Category 3/4 winner Lurah Klatt (29:30).

Also sponsoring the race were Blaine County Sheriff's Department and J.W. Thornton Wine Imports. Results follow by minutes and seconds, with class finish in parentheses:
