Ek leads Duluth contingent
Tim Ek finished second in the Ragnarok 105 ultra cycling race on Saturday in Red Wing, Minn, to lead a pack of four Duluth riders.
Ek covered the 105-mile gravel road race in 6 hours, 16 minutes, and finished just 10 seconds behind the winner, Charly Tri of Rochester, Minn. Ek was awarded "King of the Mountains" for his performance in ascending eight climbs.
Fellow Duluth riders Charlie Farrow (fourth in 6:17), Rich Hendricks (16th in 7:02) and Jeremy Kershaw (20th in 7:05) joined about 100 riders who competed in the race over hilly terrain.
