Nathan Parks and Ron Castia represented Team EMC2 to endure the Everest Challenge, one of the toughest mountain specific route in the race calendar.
The race unfolded into the final climb on the first stage where Nathan was with a small group that had a comfortable lead on the main pack. The twenty mile long climb ends at 10,000 feet. The group broke apart at the base and Nathan soloed to the finish with a ten minute gap on second place. On stage two, the final stage, Ron made surging pace which broke the group. With this, Nathan was able to mark second and third place, maintaining the margin to garner the overall classification win.
“I was very fortunate that the race went well for me. I felt strong and I did not have any issues with the bike. Both days were good days.”
