Mountain bikers took on 12 Hours in the Papago Saturday, a long day of endurance with some solo riders completing more than 150 miles worth of loops on the trail.
Riders, in teams or going it alone, finished as many rounds as they could on the 7.2-mile loop around Papago Park in 12 hours.
Taylor Lideen (Five Ten Reaper Madness DH), of Colorado, finished 22 loops for a total of about 158 miles on the day. Hunter Keating (Harmony Systems) completed 21 loops for 150 miles on a single speed, topping the podium in that category and finishing third overall.
Jessie Rice (unattached), of Phoenix, the only female solo competitor, placed mid-pack in 21st among the men.
Nationwide VeloWorx – JMNH topped the podium with the overall team win and 25 laps.
