-A A +A

Kip Taylor just nipped local racer Fortunato Ferrara to prevent Ferrara from repeating at this year’s Tour De Los Alamos.
Ferrara, from Los Alamos missed out on his second straight win at the event. Taylor topped him by 8 seconds in the 81-mile race, finishing in a time of 3 hours, 30 minutes, 14 seconds.
Sunday’s race was the 42nd running of the Tour De Los Alamos. The race bills itself as the oldest continuously-run road race in the Southwest.
In all, 124 racers finished Sunday’s contest.
The Tour consisted of a 27-mile loop from downtown Los Alamos, through the Back Gate, down to White Rock and back up to Los Alamos via the Truck Route.
Only one woman elected to do the two-lap, 54-mile race this year. Gretchen Selby finished her race in a time of 3:04:51.
The top men’s division included 13 racers. Taylor and Ferrara averaged nearly 24 miles per hour during their rides.
In the citizen races, which consisted of one lap, Mike Prime and Cathy Christofferson, both of Los Alamos, were the top overall finishers.
