John Gorrila sent me a link from www.singletrack.com regarding an article on the Kenda Mohican 100, held last weekend. Thought you all would be interested:
On its anniversary year, The Kenda Mohican 100 also made history by recording the oldest racer to ever complete the race. Mike Dietlin, (Kenda) will celebrate his seventieth birthday but he is not letting that slow him down. Out of 27 masters who started, eighteen finished, with Dietlin placing fourteenth, despite having twenty years on this field of young bucks in their fifties. At the awards, BikeSource of Columbus recognized Dietlin’s achievement with a $75 gift certificate. As he picked up his award, Dietlin, who has completed three Mohican 100’s in a row, including the wet year when many dropped out, yelled out to the crowd, “I think I may be done with the 100 mile and may enter the sissy race next year!” he said referring to the Mohican 100k, sticking out his tongue.
