CMS teammate Erik Vandendries completed the Mt Washington double again this year! He completed the foot race in June taking 2nd place in the 50+ age group with a personal best 1:11:51 (18th place overall). Last weekend he completed the bike race in 1:02:59. The combined time of 2:14:50 is a record for doing both races in the same year. This breaks his record from last year when he ran a 1:12:20 and biked 1:03:15 for a total of 2:15:35.
In reviewing results from both races (I have all Mt Washington results and bike results to 1997) Erik is the only runner to have gone under 1:15 on the bike and foot race in the same year. I did find a couple who have done both under 1:15 but on different years
