Bishop Repeats Victory at NUE Mohican 100
After setting the course record in 2017, Jeremiah Bishop wins the 2018 Mohican 100-mile with a time of 6:57:53.
After the race, Bishop joked, “Perhaps I had better invite a slower carpool buddy to drive to races with, I thought, as Bryan Lewis [a fellow Virginian who Bishop had talked into joining him for the NUE event] demolished the lead break of NUE contenders on the toughest climb of the day. Christian Tangy and Brian Schwarm lost contact, and I was in trouble.”
Recalling the day’s effort, “OUCH! 400+ watts at 5 1/2 hours in, and I was getting dropped after the second big attack. I clawed my way back to the wheel and we came to a stalemate until the final slick single track where my 20-years of Pro-XC experience gave me an edge. I attacked full gas out of the saddle on every turn and gained just the slightest advantage and take the win at the finish line.”
