Julie Young was third overall. Griffin Easter took the overall title for men, followed by David Greif in second and Levi Leipheimer in third. Tinker Juarez was the top male on the long course in the 50-plus category, and was seventh overall.Stetina’ Paydirt, founded by pro cyclist Peter Stetina, provided their full cash purse, $4,000, exclusively for women this year, noting “we resolved that equal payout doesn’t make up for ground lost” with gender equality in cycling. The top women and men all received custom-stamped pure silver ingots as awards, recognising the silver mining history of the Nevada region. “Thanks for your patience for the last three years. It means a lot to me,” Stetina told riders before the morning start in Carson City, Nevada. The event officially began as a gran fondo ride in 2017, then converted to the mixed-terrain contest of pavement, gravel and sand two years later, but was halted for two years due to the coronavirus pandemic.The combined efforts of two timed segments accounted for overall standings, which was instituted to “keep things competitive without separating yourself from dear friends in the dusty west of Nevada’s desert”, according to the event web site. And dusty it was on Saturday, with 102.2km (63.5 miles) and 1,532.5 metres (4,700 feet) of elevation gain on the journey for the long course, the Paydirt. Easter and Leipheimer were the only two riders to record sub-one-hour times for both segments, Easter recorded a total combined effort of 1:43:43. Runner-up Greif was 1:45 faster than Leipheimer, but Leipheimer was more consistent over the timed segments. Grief had an issue on the first segment with a time of 1:02:10, but had the fastest second segment of the day, 43.02, to edge him in front for second place.Each of the top three women in the Paydirt long competition represented best times in their age categories, Young the best in the female 50-plus field, Cantwell tops in the female Under-40 field and Parks tops for the female 40-49 age category.“It was as challenging as it was fun,” Parks posted to her Instagram account. “To be honest, I wasn’t quite sure if I was going to be ‘ready’ to race again after the massive loss our bike family experienced.”Prior to the mass start, the event held a moment of silence to honour Moriah ‘Mo’ Wilson, who was killed two weeks ago, her murder still under investigation in Austin, Texas.“I had forgotten my Garmin at home which meant I also had no power meter to guide my efforts. So I defaulted to my chasing after Mo mode. Her presence in this community will be felt for a very long time. We all miss her and all I could do was imagine riding like we had done so many times, until I knew at some part of a techy spot she would just ride away with her effortless moves through the single tracks. Today, I was able to focus on those great memories on and off the bike and that’s what I want to do: hold on to the good stuff. Thank you Pete for providing us with just that. “Thank you for putting the women at the forefront of your event and taking a stand with us for more equality in our sport,” she added. “As I had mentioned at the podium presentation, I will be donating a portion of my Paydirt race winnings to the foundation that Mo’s family started. #RidelikeMo.” Results – women overall Pos.Rider Name (Country) TeamResult1Flavia Oliveira Parks 2:02:352Lauren Cantwell 0:02:533Julie Young 0:04:134Helena Plasschaert 0:04:475Kate Maher 0:05:036Maude Farrell 0:06:157Clare Walton 0:06:418Emily Schaldach 0:08:569Julie Hogue 0:14:3310Samantha Shields 0:16:08 Results – men overall Pos.Rider Name (Country) TeamResult1Griffin Easter 1:43:432David Greif 0:01:293Levi Leipheimer 0:03:144Collin Huston 0:11:385Harrison Biehl 0:13:016Zack Karas 0:13:097Tinker Juarez 0:13:248Erik Nelson 0:14:319Karl Schulz 0:14:5910Patrick Huibregtse 0:16:43
