The 25 Hours of Frog Hollow is the longest day cycling race ever. Taking place just outside of Hurricane, Utah, this past weekend (Nov. 5-6), the bike race started at 10 a.m. on Saturday and finished at 10 a.m. on Sunday, gaining a 25th hour thanks to the daylight savings time change.

Local Will Inverso won the solo singlespeed category, finishing a record-breaking 19 laps. The old record was 17 laps.

At 12.8 miles per lap and almost 1,000 feet of climbing per lap, he rode 243.2 miles and climbed nearly 19,000 feet.

Inverso finished the season by winning the first two solo mountain bike races he entered – the 24 Hours of Moab and 25 Hours of Frog Hollow.
