Kindree, Walter Test of Metal champs
Neal Kindree successfully defended his Test of Metal title Saturday with a second consecutive win.
Kindree, of Squamish, won five of the 10 primes along the course and pulled away from second-place finisher Kris Sneddon of Secehlt in the latter stages of the race.
Kindree's time was 2:34:20, just under two minutes ahead of Sneddon, in near perfect conditions on the 67-kilometre course.
Quinn Moberg, at the age of 19, rode impressively, finishing fifth overall with a time of 2:41:46 and taking top Squamish men's honors.
Sandra Walter, of Coquitlam, took the women's title in 3:00:08 after taking the lead away from second-place finisher Kate Aardal (3:02:27) of Calgary on the Powerhouse Plunge.
Squamish's Brandi Heisterman was the top Squamish woman and led for most of the race but eventually faded to a fourth-place finish in 3:03:41.
