Pole Pedal Paddle Title Remains In Jackson
JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — Jackson's annual Pole Pedal Paddle race drew competitors from as far away as Indiana and California but a local emerged as the winner.
Spencer Morton finished the multisport course in 2 hours, 22 minutes and 49 seconds to win his second-straight title. The Jackson Hole Daily (http://bit.ly/HDeoTL ) reported that Adam Wirth of Boise, Idaho finished two minutes behind him and Dave Bergart of Victor won third place.
The competition has been held on the second to last Saturday of skiing at the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort for 37 years. It includes four events — alpine skiing, cross-country skiing, cycling and boating. Contestants can compete individually or in teams.
An Army pilot who just returned from Afghanistan competed in a bear head and hide. His team took the best costume award.
