With 150 miles, 8.5 hours and 72677 beats I thought Wolfgang Bangerth, the creator of this particular competition, had QFCIII in the bag, that was until Keith Jenson submitted his results. Keith rode 188 miles of NoCo gravel to get 106,396 total beats. That’s an average of 134 beats per minute for over 14 hours.  I bet he’s feeling that one today.  Congrats Keith.

QFC IV deets dropping soon.
