In Mountain View, Arkansas, David Riddle was the overall winner of the Sylamore 50k. David's win was over quality competition and continues his unbeaten streak in ultra marathons to 5. David said that he was in awe at the shear cliffs that the trail ran along with incredible views down below. David's time of 3:48 was just off of the course record which remains in tact for Fleet Feet Huntsville owner Dink Taylor from the year 2000. David was 7 minutes ahead of 2nd place finisher, Nick Lewis.
