The Bailey HUNDO was started in 2010 with only 150 racers and was a huge success! The top three finishers in the Men’s Open/Pro category were Olympian Jeremy Horgan- Kobelski (6:36), Colorado mountain biking legend Dave Wiens (6:49), and Team Epic Endurance racer Bryan Alders (6:56). The top finishing times in the Women’s categories were turned in by Sonya Looney (8:19), Eszter Horanyi (9:04, singlespeed category) and Brenda Moczygemba (9:21). As
of press time, Looney, Moczygemba and Alders are confirmed for 2011, with JHK, Wiens and Horanyi in active conversation about returning as well. The Bailey HUNDO looks forward to attracting an even more competitive field in 2011.
