Fairbanks, AK - Bikers obliterated a previous course record in this year’s Idiatrod Trail Invitational. The first riders pedaled across the finish line Wednesday morning to complete the 350 mile race between Knik and McGrath. Four of the race’s top five finishers this year are all cyclists from Alaska.
Jay Petervary beat out three competitive rookies and one very experienced veteran to win this year’s Iditarod Trail Invitational. This is Petervary’s sixth ITI and his first win. “I didn’t sleep at all and I didn’t spend an hour at any checkpoint,” he said sleepily.
