The Susitna 100 is a 100 mile race through the frozen wilderness of Alaska. The race course follows remote snow machine trails that are extremely variable in both terrain and snow conditions. Racers can choose their mode of transportation: ski, bike, or run. The race starts at 9 am, and the fastest usually finish by midnight. A biker often wins, but not this year. This year Tim Kelley smoked the field on skis. He completed the 100 mile race in 12 hours and 44 minutes, a full hour and 52 minutes ahead of second place. It was a very good year for the skiers, the top five finishers were all nordic types. Second was Jim Jager, third was Brent Veltkamp, fourth Jeff Bannish, fifth Mel Strauch. And in the Su 100's shorter sibling, the Little Su 50 K, the top two were on skis, including FasterSkier's own Cory Smith who won the 50 K in a time of 2:45, a half hour ahead second.
