Tostado, Horanyi crowned national 24-hour champions

Harris, Wallenfels take top singlespeed honors

Eleven national champions were crowned at the USA Cycling 24-Hour Mountain Bike National Championships on Sunday after the nation's best ultra-endurance mountain bikers wrapped up 24 grueling hours racing in beautiful Moab, Utah.

Riders set out on Saturday with a LeMans-style start before undertaking as many laps as they could complete on the 15-mile course. After the 24 hours had expired, Josh Tostado (Bach Builders) and Eszter Horanyi (Waltworks) recorded more laps than any other solo riders in the male and female divisions to earn their respective solo national titles.

After finishing second to five-time defending champion Chris Eatough (Trek Coop) last year, Tostado assumed the stars-and-stripes in 2009 by logging 17 laps. He rode the first few laps nearly side-by-side with eventual silver medalist Kelly Magelky before getting a small gap on lap three. Tostado never looked back and held the lead for the rest of the race. Magelky finished with 16 total laps.

Horanyi also dethroned the reigning champion in the women's division, Pua Sawicki (Team Mata) who finished fifth in this year's contest. Horanyi logged 13 laps of the Moab course to finish just ahead of Sarah Kaufmann (Roaring Mouse) on her final go around.

Both Eatough and Sawicki were suffering from flu-like symptoms and were unable to defend their solo national titles of 2008.

St. George, Utah, residents Dave Harris (2-Epic) and Linda Wallenfals (LWCoaching) earned the men's and women's singlespeed solo national titles, completing impressive 15 and 11 laps respectively on their one-geared bikes.

One of last year's mixed duo champions Rebecca Tomaszewski teamed up with a new partner to win another stars-and-stripes in that category. She and Dax Massey made up the Niner-Ergon-Bach Builders team that logged 17 laps on their way to the title. The duo held off a strong surge from the Sho-air duo of Mario Correa and Heidi Volpe, who also completed 17 laps, to take the win.

With 18 total laps, the men's duo crown was earned by the Grand Targhee Resort Squad of Troy Barry and Cary Smith. Also logging 18 laps, former USA Cycling Mountain Bike Marathon National Championship medalist Gretchen Reeves teamed up with long-time ultra-mountain bike racer Rebecca Rusch to earn the women's duo national title in formidable fashion for their Specialized-Tokyo Joe's squad.

The Pro Cycling squad of Kalan Beisel, Russell Finsterwald, J.J. Clark and Rob Sousa earned the men's four-person title, while the Quadruple Gnar quad of Ryan Geiger, Kallan Creager, Casey Williams and Daniel Conley bettered the elder group 19 laps to 18 and win the male junior four-person division.

The sole women's junior four-person team to enter the contest, The Justice League comprised of Wesley Geer, Ellen Patton, Ellie Atkins and Meghan Kane, turned in an impressive 14 laps to take that title.

In the men's master (35+) division the Washed Up and Faded Away squad of Stephen White, Mike Gibbs, Edward Oliver and Mark Roebke finished their 19th lap just ahead of the Flab Four and Trek Store-Boulder MTB Racing squads to earn the gold.

In its first year hosting the national championship event, the 15th-annual 24-Hours of Moab drew hundreds of athletes who competed in various national championship and non-national championship categories in both 12 and 24-hour divisions. The record number of competitors also shared in a record cash purse of more than $24,000.
