The sign outside of Hachita on the final stretch to Antelope Wells. For many it is a mix of excitment that they have nearly completed their race and tinged with sadness that their adventure is drawing to a close. (pic Mikki Suvia)
Max Bloomfield executed a perfect finishing day, managing to get a 4 hour stop at Hachita for a final sleep/nap before hitting the last 65 miles to the border in the pre-dawn light to finish at the cusp of day 29 in 28:23:25.
Mikki Suvia took a 12 hour stop at Silver City, before starting at 04:00 to finish the TD on his second attempt in 29:08:06.
From Mikki: *TDR 2019... In the Bag !!!
Wow, what a ride, LITERALLY... I don’t know yet where to begin, but suffice it to say, there’s so much running through my brain that I need to to process, I’ll get it sorted out and put it all together at some point.
In the mean time, here are some scenes from “The Border” !!! 🤙😎
Joey King set out from Silver City only 2.5 hours behind Mikki and was closing the gap to eventually finish only an hour behind in 29:09:07 to come in 64th.
Sue and John O'Malley are still riding and are now currently at Cuba. They posted this shot of Sue with Sylvia of Sylvia's Snack Shack before Vallecitos.
