Despite forest fires in the nearby Rocky Mountains, the conditions for XTERRA Lory ended up being just fine on race day. Just fine, if you consider 95 degrees fahrenheit and sunny just fine. To cool off at the end, athletes were greeted with a slip-n-slide as the finish line. This was the 6th year in a row that XTERRA Lory has sold out. Sign up early next year if you’d like to join in the fun at one of the largest XTERRA’s in the USA.
