APPLE PREVIEW III - When this was written, only two women were registered in the Elite division. But they are two of our region's very best, national class talents certainly.

We're talking about SUZIE FOX and ELAINE NELSON, both of whom are past Apple champions. This head-to-head promises to be epic.

Here's some comparative stats: 

 

SUZIE FOX, 32, Chaska

 

Career wins (since 2009) - 41

Career Du Wins - 9

Apple Podiums -  2 x 1st (2013, 2011), 2 x 2nd (2015, 2012), 2 x 3rd (2016, 2014)

Best Apple Time -  1:33:40 (2012) - #7 all-time amateur (since 2004)

 

ELAINE NELSON, 38, Duluth

 

Career wins (sine 2011): 16 (28 starts)

Career Du wins: - 2 (Apple 2015, Gear West 2014)

Duathlon Podiums - 2 x 1st, 1st 2nd (Gear West 2017), 1 x 3rd (Gear West 2015)

Best Apple Time - 1:34:06 (2015) - #9 all-time amateur (since 2014) ...

 

 

Prior to Saturday's race, Fox and Nelson had only faced each other on four occasions, and Nelson came out on top each time. Still, the MTN Guys believe that this battle is too close to call. RACE WEBSITE
