Fink-Debray, Garrec pace 178 BHC climbers


     A brand-new face and a very familiar one emerged as the winners of the 34th annual Baldy Hill Climb Sept. 29 on a 1.86-mile, 3,140 vertical foot course up the Warm Springs side of Sun Valley Resort’s principal ski mountain.

     Ketchum’s Miles Fink-Debray, 24, won his sixth Baldy climb in seven years at 36:09, 46 seconds ahead of second-place Reid Pletcher (36:55) and over two minutes faster than last year’s BHC men’s champion and third-place Michael Tobin (38:14) of Boise.

     Tobin, 48, a seven-time BHC winner and course record holder, captured the “Cheeso Double” that also featured a mountain bike race up Baldy.

     Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation Gold Team skier Lucy Garrec, 23, from Freeport, Me. won the women’s title (44:50), in 13th place of 82 racing class finishers Saturday.

     Garrec competed in cross-country skiing for Colby College and University of Vermont. In March she medaled in third place at the NCAA Nordic Ski Championships 15-kilometer classic race in Bozeman, Mt.

     Hiking (recreational class) winners were Gretel Kearney (52:27) and Mike Wolter (52:52).

     Full racing and hiking results on page B-8. Mountain bike results will be published when they become available, but here are the top finishers:
