2010 West Coast Marathon Championship News from SoCalendurance


SoCal Fat Tire Epic 50
" West Coast Marathon Championships "
" Tinker " Juarez defends his title in the 2010 West Coast Marathon Championships
With the rains coming earlier in the week, the 24 mile Epic course had some of the best conditions Vail Lake has ever seen! The challenging 2 lap race was running fast and furious. Racers came from all over the West Coast to compete for the coveted Champions Jersey's.
The Mens Pro Category was full of potential winners. From early on in the race Tinker took the lead. Followed closely by John Nobil, Gerry Cody, and Vincent Lombardie. All the Pro men came in way below the 2 hour lap mark. With Tinker having the fastest lap in 1:36. The second lap proved to be the deciding factor for many of the days racers. Out on course you could see the grit and determination being set forth by all the days racers!
In the end Tinker took the win in convincing fashion with Jiohn Nobil in second and Gerry Cody close behind for third.
With a smokin fast time our Womens Pro category winner was SoCal Endurance's own Shalyn Gates. Shalyn was having a great day on the bike, smiling and jokin as she sped by at the aid stations.
Also a noteable ride was done by Superbike star Ben Bostrum in the Singlespeed open category. Ben turned a 3:28 which would have been good for a 4th place in the Pro Open category. Great job Ben!
