Team Osprey jetted into shore just 2 minutes behind Team YogaSlackers (from Seattle) as both teams were well ahead of the rest of the field. After a quick transition for both leading teams, off into the slickrock canyons they headed, in search of the next checkpoint – at a long Via Ferrata, which they hit at 1:00 in the afternoon. This would take the teams from Corona Arch up through a labyrinth of ramps and narrow ledges to the top of a large mesa. The two teams would race neck and neck across the mesa tops, picking up checkpoints along the way. The third place team would get to the Via Ferrata a mere 9 minutes after the leading pair, so it is still a tight race!!!
