In Primal Quest, the 417-mile adventure race going on right now around Moab, Utah, the top teams have entered the last section of the race in the La Sal Mountains. Nike, the favorites, are in the lead. Merrell/Wigwam is on their heels, but the real story is GoLite. They are in third place after two fiascos that were no fault of theirs (see post below.)
Now the teams have a long, high-altitude trek that will give Colorado teams like Nike, Spyder and Solomon/Crested Butte an advantage. They finish with a fast, downhill mountain bike to a CRAZY rope traverse between two buttes.
The top teams are close enough that this could be an amazing finish. Look for it in the next 24 hours, maybe much less!
