The Revelstoke contingent at the second Annual Kaslo Sufferfest Oct. 1-2, 2011 put in a very impressive showing, with many racers up on the podium. This great event had 40 km and 100 km mountain bike courses, a dowhill event, and 10 km, 25 km and 50 km trail running courses, as well as kids events.

Racers (with results for their age category or overall) included Rory (1st overall 25km run, 2nd 40km bike), Nelson (2nd bike), and Alexandra (1st in bike and run) Luxmoore, Sarah Newton (1st 40km bike, 2nd 25km run), Amy Guidinger (2nd 40km bike), Kai and Pete Atkinson, Amanda MacIntosh, Jordy McTavish, Atsuko Knight (2nd 100km bike), Dave Sinclair, Lorraine Blancher (1st overall downhill), Pete Smillie, Natalie Stafl (3rd 50km run), Lenka Stafl, Jon Davis, Ryan, Nicholas, and Anne-Marie Gill (1st overall 50km run), Madeline Martin-Preney (1st 50km run), Lenka Stafl, Yann Bourdon, and Meghan Anderson.
