The 2014 Rockwell Relay marked the 5th running and included the largest field yet with just shy of 600 riders. This year’s edition featured a staggered start and both competitive and non-competitive categories. The event is healthy mix of those who want to complete the course and push themselves and those who are going for a category win or team best time.
The competitive men’s race was won by repeat champion Team LiVe Well p/b Bountiful Bicycle setting a new course record of 24 hours and 35 minutes. The strategy included team time trialing with the second place team, also LiVe Well p/b Bountiful Bicycle and then rolling across the line together with the defending champion team being awarded the win. Teams Brute Force and Fast Friday tied for 3rd place.
The competitive womens’s race was tough and only saw 3 teams finish with Team Power to the She winning in 34 hours and 43 minutes. They were followed by Team Teton Luna Chicks and Team Crazies!
The Coed was won by Health Catalyst/3B Yoga 28 hours and 6 minutes to end the 3 year reign of Team Fatty who finished in 3rd palce. LiVe Well p/b Bountiful Bicycle #4 took second place.
