The Crud 2 Mud got underway on Sunday with a sold-out field of 180 athletes taking part, and perfect conditions both on snow and through the bike park.

The majority of participants did the event solo, although you could do the race with a relay partner as well. If you did both sections, that's a total vertical drop of 1,200 metres — skiing or snowboarding from the Roundhouse to Olympic Station and then biking down B-Line and Ho Chi Min to the finish.

The fastest overall time was set by Robin Courcelles in the Ski Male 19 to 19 solo category. He was the only racer to beat the 10-minute mark, finishing both legs and the transition in 9:47.83. Martin Lacroix was second in the category in 10:06.39, followed by Adam Dagg in 10:32.27.

Julie Mountfield won the Ski Female 19 to 39 race in 11:17.32, followed by Jenny Liljegren in 12:10.81 and Anna Louise Nordlander in 13:46.90.

In Ski Male 40-Plus, Trennon Paynter was fastest in 10:39.91, followed by Mike McLellan in 11:39.12 and Dusan Markovic in 11:46.60.

In Ski Junior, the Iles brothers gave each other a close race with Jack Iles finishing first in 11:52.63 and Finn just seven seconds back in 11:59.82. Alex Auger was third in 12:47.47.

Wendy Robinson won Snowboard Female 19 to 39 in 13:07.54, followed by Lacy Kemp in 15:25.59 and Bianca Ferrajohn in 15:39.64.

For the men, Ross Dunlop was the fastest snowboarder — and the only one to break 11 minutes — in 10:46.42. John Shelly was second in 11:30.26 and Kenton Dunning third in 11:40.6 6.

In Snowboard Female 40-Plus, Linda Lowery finished in 22:06.22. In the men's 40-Plus it was Brad Morin in first in 14:33.32, followed by Eric MacLeod in 14:44.78.

In the junior team category, mountain biker Zander Geddes and skier Broderick Thompson teamed up to post a combined time of 9:35.61, which would have placed them third in open men. Rhys Verner and McKinley Languedoc were second in junior in 10:30.59, followed by Mikayla Martin and Luke Dimarzo in 10:46.85.

In the female team category, Simmone Lyons and Bryann Palmer were first, followed by Sarah Wilson and Dawn Cashen, followed by Kim Villeneuve and Melanie Reid.

In the male team category, brothers Jake and Tyler Allison posted the fastest time of the day, a 9:02.24. Alexander Matheson and Brian Hutchison were second in 9:26.28, and Daniel Moore and Stuart Ray third in 9:51.45.
