Completing 55.27 miles with over 8,000 feet of elevation gain in 5 hours and 50 minutes, pro mountain biker Hannah Otto has set a significant new FKT.
Not only did Hannah Otto crush it on a demanding trail in Moab, but she also made history by setting the fastest known time for both men and women. The previous record on her route, which includes the infamous The Whole Enchilada trail, clocked in at 6 hours and 47 minutes.
