Riders who must finish before the 12 cut-off.
Here are Matt's times:
Here are the times for all the Ride 2 Recovery riders, all (except for Sara Bell who had to drop out due to mechanical problems) finished before the 12 hour cut-off and received either a gold or silver belt buckle!

Back in June I reported that Ride 2 Recovery disabled Vet, double arm amputee, Matt DeWitt's specialized mountain bike had been stolen while on a training camp with Ride 2 Recovery in Alaska. While the bike was found (4 other, non-modified bikes have yet to be found), it was damaged.
Matt's bike was damaged by the thieves that stole it, Ride 2 Recovery's Scott Moro (AKA Bicycle Repairman) had to do quite a bit of work to repair Matt's bike. Scott posted photos on his FaceBook page as he made repairs. I am happy to report that the bike has been repaired and Matt will be racing in the Leadville 100 MTB "Race Across the Sky."
