You were strong today! Well done.
I noticed in the results that someone named Joel Ford was running really well until registering a 43-minute split. Any idea who that is?
Not really. The name seems more familiar than I can justify based on it apparently being his first time at a QOC event this season. Looks like he also did a 2012 MTBO as part of a coed team. Googling a bit more seems to confirm my resulting hunch that he's an adventure racer - https://www.facebook.com/joel.ford.58
And he has helpfully uploaded a photo of himself into the QOC membership directory, which can be seen by those with a current QOC membership.
Haha, is that a subtle hint that I should renew my membership? :)
Joel is an AR racer for ARMD. He was doing Peace Corps (?) or something of the like for the past 2 years or so in Africa. Glad to hear he is back healthy and racing again.
