Ben Popp Finishes Salsa 2-4 at Afton Alps

Ben Popp finished 20 laps in 22 hours at the Salsa 2-4 24 hours of Afton Mountain Bike race. This performance placed Ben 3rd (2nd male) overall. It was a fun and 22 hours and unique experience. Ben would regularly say, “Man this hurts. I am having fun.” He also finished saying, “How did I do this for 11 more days?”

Ben was racing in honor of a home town friend “Duffy” whom recently past away after a tough battle with cancer. Ben was racing to raise money for a fund to help Duffy’s wife and 2 sons with costs from Duffy’s battle against cancer and start a college fund for Duffy’s sons.

If you still want to help Ben in his efforts to support Duffy’s family contact the Sisu Nordic Foundation for ways to send your support.

Great job Ben and Congratulations on a great race.
