It started with fun banter over dinner and turned into what some hoped would be a heated competition at the Teva Mountain Games in Vail. (See the original post here: www.gearjunkie.com/a-friendly-competition) But the Ultimate Mountain Challenge between Stephen Regenold and Roy Wallack ended with a whimper.
After the first event — a kayak race — Regenold led by just two minutes. He increased his lead over Wallack in the next three disciplines — a mountain bike race, a 10K mountain run, and a time trial on the road bike — to solidly defeat the challenger by more than 44 minutes.
Look for both athletes to return next year with hunger, vengeance and new challenges (pull-up competition, anyone?). Congrats to both Regenold and Wallack for participating in and finishing the Ultimate Mountain Challenge at the Teva Mountain Games.
