The Lutsen 99er took place Saturday morning, with over 1,800 rides at the starting line.

Due to the rain and weather the last few days, each race had some adjustments.

Sections of the course were removed and the finish line of each race was changed, along with the overall distance.

"You ride on like gravel roads, pavements, like snowmobile trails and then some singles track as well. This year, it’s only 85 miles because of all the rain we’ve had has washed out some bridges. So they had to shorten the course a little bit, which I’m okay with. But yeah, it’ll be really wet on track like there’s unlike the snowmobile trails, there’s always big puddles so that will be interesting," said Ski Hut Sales Manager Jake Torch.

The Top three 99’er female finishers where Jenna Rinehart (5:36:30), Elaina Griffiths (6:06:11) and Dee Dee Winfield (6:17:39).

While for the males it was Josh Bauer (5:06:25), Brian Johnson (5:07:55) and Will Surbaugh (5:08:45).

In the 69’er female Dellia Barrett, Chloe Leege, Ronnie Lajoie came across first. For the male event it was Chase Sams, Casey Lajoie and Jonathan Toftoy.

Chelsey Youngberg, Phoebe Leege and Dorothea Kramer where top three in the 49’er. Alongside Nate Schneider, Rowan Hall and Eric Ellingson.

Rounding the day out in the 25’er was Brooke Ailey, Char Ailey and Danica Barrett for the females, with Steven Anderson, Miles Lechtenberg and Colten Lajoie.
