Another Morgan and Miles show on Baldy

New records set in Baldy Hill Climb


Kathy Wygle and Barry Irwin arrive near the top of Baldy at the end of Saturday’s 32nd Baldy Hill Climb.

Warm temperatures and blue skies greeted a record 275 entrants (228 running or hiking, 47 biking) for Saturday's 32nd annual Baldy Hill Climb.

In the 1.86-mile, 3,140 vertical foot ascent, Miles Fink-Debray (36:23) saved a sprint for the final 100 yards to edge Mike Sinnott (36:27) by four seconds and become the first man to win five straight BHCs.

Only course record holder Michael Tobin of Boise has won more BHCs, six, but they were 1983-86 plus 1988-89. Fink-Debray's winning time was his second fastest in the streak.

Morgan Arritola, 2010 U.S. Olympian in cross country skiing, became the only woman to ever break 40 minutes since the climb started in 1979. She won her third hill climb in 39:53. Only 12-time winner Adrienne Leuges has won more climbs.

Four-time BHC winner Bill Nurge (1.51:08) and Sara Schroeder (2.20:38) were crowned winners of the Cheeso Double (biking followed by hiking to the top). Nurge, 48, broke Dave Harrison's Cheese Double record by 3:01 to claim his second win in the Baldy Double.

Matt Luhn (1.05:35) cracked his own course record by 18 seconds in winning his second bike title in the three years it has been staged. Schroeder set a women's bike record in winning that event for a first time.
