Torin Koos wasn't ready to start resting following US Distance Nationals. Following on the heels of a an impressive performance in the 50km classic National Championship, where he took the silver, Koos dominated the 5-sport Ridge to River Run. Ironman and Ironwomen competitors downhill ski, cross-country ski, run, bike and paddle. Koos won in a time of 2:07, defending his title. Second place finisher Darell Sofield finished 15 minutes back of the World Cup sprinter.

“It’s the biggest race in North Central Washington,” Koos told the Wenatchee World. “It’s a pretty cool event in that it tests everything. There’s people that can ski, there’s people that can bike and run, but to have someone that can ski, bike and run, and then paddle on top of that, really it’s the ultimate test.”
