Diehl Delivers the HURT at Hill of Death Magnetic!

Diehl... the real deal!
Diehl... the real deal!

Just minutes before the race, Team NJS reached an agreement with Team HURT, allowing Doug Diehl to lay the HURT on the rest of the field in the Hill of Death Magnetic Rollerski Race.  Diehl rocketed out into the lead on his psychedelic green kryptonic rollerski wheels, gapping the field within the first two minutes of the race.  Diehl continued to power up the punishing climb and won the Hill of Death Magnetic Race.  Diehl now leads the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse Rollerski Series.

Diehl finished minutes ahead of the rest of the pack. Chris Rose managed to come in second, passing Jim Kobak on the final climb.  Kobak was stunned, “I had two Rulfs Donuts and three cups of coffee just before the race, wha’ happened??”

Team NJS/HURT’s Andy Farry came in fourth, almost overtaking a suffering Kobak on the final climb.  Just behind Farry was Team HURT captain, Dave Kvam.  Kvam battled the Lord of Destruction, Bob Maswick, throughout the race.  Maz was a little shaken when he couldn’t reel in Kvam near the finish, “I thought I had properly wheel-doped for this race… I need to get some of Diehl’s psychedelic green kryptonic wheels before the Climb to the Castle Race!… Maybe I can borrow Joe Korzinecki’s ultra fast V4‘s.”

Saratoga Biathlon’s Tom Moffett, the pre-race favorite, managed 7th place.  Moffett had been training hard, winning Monday’s Pointe Au Death Time Trial, then putting in a Hill of Death PR on Tuesday.  Then, he hammered the Hill of Death again on Thursday, “I guess I was a little spent…”

Skiers were greeted by the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse at the summit of the climb.  All agreed that the Four Horsemen look much less intimidating in person…
