    The Allen Tillery Chevy Colorado Wheelbarrow Carry was brutal. Only a handful of athletes finished!

    Wheelbarrow Results:

    Ortmayer 29.22 seconds (winner)
    Foemmel 36.16 seconds
    Bracewell 39.37 seconds
    Josh Thigpen 54' 1"

    Justin Warren 35' 10"
    Dave Ostlund 33' 1"
    Urbank 21'

    Burke 17' 9"
    Bakke 15'
    Connor 10' 7"
    Palmer 7'

    I do not have a subtotal for the day but it looks like Ortmayer has a fairly significant lead right now in 1st.

    I will post updates for day two.

    The overall winner could earn a spot at WSM, so there is a lot on the line (Travis has already qualified based on his placing last year).

    Yes, and an At Large Nutrition sponsored athlete.

    Congrats Scott on the new record, I knew you can do it. Especially when I saw you axle press 400x3 like it was nothing.

    Tom, thanks for the update. I am hoping to make it to be a spectator in North Carolina next month. It would be great for an American to win it on home soil.
