Rory Luxmoore leads way for Revelstoke athletes at Kaslo Sufferfest last weekend.

Revelstoke’s Rory Luxmoore is followed by Scott Legere race to the top of a snowy Idaho Peak during Saturday’s Kaslo Sufferfest summit race that covered 46 kilometres and 2,200 metres of elevation gain. The two runners finished tied for first in a time of 4:54:19.

As if that wasn’t enough, on Sunday Luxmoore went and finished second in the 50-kilometre trail run in a time of 4:56:45 – 51 seconds back of winner Jordan McTaggart (who didn’t race Saturday).

Other great performances from Revelstokians include Richard Hamilton, who won the 45-kilometre mountain bike race on Saturday and the 25-kilometre trail run on Sunday; Anne-Marie Gill and Sarah Newton, who finished first and second respectively in the women’s 50-kilometre run; and Brendan McIntosh, who came fourth in the 100-kilometre mountain bike race on Saturday.

Organizer Janis Neufeld was full of praise for Revelstoke’s athletes, especially the number of kids that took part and did well.

Full results can be found at the Kaslo Sufferfest website.
