(24-Hours) Fully committed, certifiably insane. This is good info to figure out how many people are planning to ride and/or support the entire night, and who they are. That way we can better plan ahead of time about who's parking their van or truck out at the lake overnight, at the "base camp" where we need to have somebody always stationed near the support supplies. And if we don't know each other already, it's also a great way to try connecting and do some rides beforehand as well!

(Personal Best) is for people who are eager to show, but know that 24 is daunting, especially for a first time out. They've set their own goals, like 12 hours, 6 hours, 2 hours, or else a certain number of miles / laps depending on the course.

(Skate and Support) is for people who really want to come, skate a bit, and lend a hand, but no particular goal in mind other than to support the people who are shooting for personal bests.

General Ultraskate Preparation:

2nd Place Finisher: Andrew Birchman - 103m
3rd Place Finisher: Zach / Charlie / Jason - 100m
Overall Results: The Ultra 6 vibe was on the chill side, as skaters went up against the cold and strong winds of winter and some still managed to tough it out for 100+ miles!

A lot of personal bests were made in the 40--80 mile range and skaters learned strategies on pacing, fueling, and course choice for distance skates coming later in the year.

Amazing turnout around the world!
