Team Herbalife rider Nate Whitman had a career-best day time wise, crossing the line 19th in 7:06:48. The significance? It was Whitman’s best ever time by some 19 minutes, and marked his 10th finish at Leadville, earning him a place in the exclusive 1,000-mile club.

“It was a dream ride for me today,” said Whitman, who spent the better part of the last month living in Leadville, while running the on-site Herbalife24 Basecamp. “To ride on the wheels of guys like Tinker, Alban Lakata and Carl Decker was an amazing experience. Leadville just seems to bring out the best in me. But it was a crazy day. I was in the chase group early, and everything was nice and smooth. But when Alban got back into the group after he flatted, he was so much stronger that it just shattered everybody else. Then it was just every man for himself.”

Whitman’s teammates Gerry Cody (10th) and Nate English (20th) gave Herbalife a day’s best three in the top 20.
