Chris Boice topped the professional men’s category at this year’s Pajarito Punishment downhill race.
The downhill competition was Sunday at Pajarito Mountain. While the Pajarito Punishment usually consists of a cross-country race as well as the downhill, but due to fire damage from 2011 and reconstruction efforts at Pajarito, that race had to be called off for 2012.
Boice, who rides for the Yeti Fox team, went 3 minutes, 16.63 seconds on his second ride to claim the title. Both Boice’s two times were the fastest posted in the competition this year.
Vince Sanchez of team Heart and Soul was the runner-up, finishing 2.95 seconds behind Boice.
In all, 50 men and women finished the downhill race.
In the women’s open category, Michelle Pederson of Bike n Sport Racing easily won the title over two other competitors. Pederson’s finish time of 4:47.66, posted on her first attempt down the course, was more than 41 seconds better than Terah Blake.
