12 Phat Hours Results (courtesy Trilife)

The Kokanee 12 Phat Hrs of Adrenalin was held on Saturday, July 4th at Kelso Conservation Area near Milton, Ontario. Normally known as the "Woodstock of Mountain Biking", Saturdays consistent rain pattern left the trails wet and muddy for the entire 12 hour race. Participants will remember their experience more as the "Mudstock of Mountain Biking"! Over 375 riders participated in this first-ever 12 hour mountain bike endurance relay, a spin-off from the Kokanee 24 Hrs of Adrenalin (August 15/16th at Hardwood Hills Mountain Bike Center, near Barrie).

Race organizer Stuart Dorland said "the rain adds an extra element to the mountain bike adventure. Rain somehow provides an excuse, for the kid inside of all us, to get out there and get muddy." And muddy they did get! Rumours have it that dry clothing was a hot trading item in the pit areas as Mother Nature played tricks with the riders all day. The changing weather patterns did not seem to have an effect on the spirit of the riders however. They were busy enjoying some of the other highlights of the weekend like:

- Watching Walter Lavigne propose to his girlfriend, on center stage, just before the Le Mans style race start on Saturday. She said yes!
- Another happy couple were Sean Marrable and Natalie Huc who postponed their honeymoon so that Sean could compete in this race to try and earn a coveted solo position for the Hardwood Hills race in August. Sean was successful in his goal. What makes his story even more unique however, is that two years ago, Sean lay in a hospital bed with his skull cracked open and was not expected to live. The Richmond Hill resident completed 14 laps of the 10 km course.
- A number of teams came in costume or, with decorated helmets which added to the spirit of the event. The team called "12 Angry Ovaries" were a group of female med students who rode the entire race with helmets covered in pink tissue paper and with 2 pink balloons sticking out the top!
- Steve Bauer (Olympic medallist & Tour de France Yellow Jersey holder) competed with theTeam Ski Pro Shop 2 who won first place in their category.
- Lowell "no LAZ-Y-BOY here" Grieb finished fourth in the solo category. Lowell is competing in all five Canadian Adrenalin races in the solo category.
