Colorado Native Josh Tostada (Giant) won the second annual Breckenridge 100 on Saturday finishing a full thirty-five minutes ahead of National Ultra MTB Series leader Harlan Price (Independent Fabrication).

Being the first western stop on the inaugural National Ultra Series and the third stop on the Rocky Mountain Ultra Series, the field of about 100 racers was comprised of every caliber of athlete - from elite pro's to aspiring novice endurance riders; including more non-Coloradoans than expected.

Altitude (such as the high point of the course at 13,426') seemed to take it's toll on a few but surprisingly the riders from outside of the state did very well; in fact the top finishers in almost every category were non Coloradoans.

Winner of the inaugural 2005 Breckenridge 100, Tostado once again put his name all over this event by beating the course record he set last year by eight minutes (Saturday's time was 9:03:08). Price pursued relentlessly but finished thirty-five minutes back at 9:38:15. Behind Price came Summit County local Tim Graczyk turning in just a trail crunching time of 9:56:24 on a singlespeed.

As for the women altitude was not a factor for the Asheville N.C. girls (friends and training partners who are both gunning for the series lead). Karen Masson finished first at 10:27:16 for first and Trish Stevenson came second in 11:01:23. Coming in third local racing legend Cat Morrison with the time of 12:25:37.
