While our Climbing Challenge has come to and end, we took some time to go through the social media posts and read some post event recaps from our competitors.

The top 3 finishers of the Climbing Challenge have been posted.

1 Lynne Anderson 10h57 at 26’061ft wins 400 ALP bucks.

2 Andrea Buttine 10h27 at 22’970ft wins 250 ALP bucks.

3 Julie Hsu 9h56 at 17’392ft wins 100 ALP bucks.

We have 2 more awards to give out. The top 3 photos of this years challenge using the hashtag #alpclimbingchallenge were all by Andrea Buttine. She enjoyed some very scenic riding in the Vail Valley and took amazing photos. The #1 best photo as voted by on Facebook was the above photo with the snow capped peaks. This photo to the right, of Andrea riding, was second best photo. Congrats Andrea! Not only do you get 250 ALP bucks, you also get free KUHL schwag.

The last award to give out is the Most Inspirational. We had several choices to choose from. From 170+ hill repeats in St Louis, to more than 9,000ft of climbing in one day in cold, wet weather. In the end, we chose the person who climbed for a good cause- she raised $1000 for UNICEF's relief work in Indonesia. Congrats (again) to Andrea! Andrea cleaned up and gets to choose even more KUHL schwag.

Thank you to all who participated in our Climbing Challenge. 360 days until next year’s event.
