The day starts off with 3 front runners- Brian Marshburn, Justin Faul, and Mario Raymond. On the first trail sections, Brian and Mario pull ahead of Justin and continue to be ahead of him throughout the day. However, Justin's performance on this trail section is not an indication of what he can do on trails. By mile 43, Brian and Mario are 20 minutes ahead and this is where Brian leaves Mario. The day thus far has been a good amount of road and easier trails. By Elizabeth Furnace, mile 75, Brian had a 40 minute lead on Justin. However, Sherman Gap is known to change many people's day. Justin comes off this stretch with being only 18 minutes behind Brian now. Then we see Justin arriving into Veach West now 12 minutes ahead of Brian. Justin finishes with a 37 minute lead on Brian. Justin shows us that the race is never over until you cross the line. See more 2017 photos on our Facebook page.
