The Newton's Revenge event began in 2006 when the Mount Washington Hillclimb (scheduled for Aug. 17 this year) became so popular that a second race was needed to accommodate the interested racers.
The course records also remained intact. The men's mark is 49:24, set by Tom Danielson of Connecticut in 2002. The women's record is 58:14 and belongs to France's Jeannie Longo (2000).
Wolfeboro's Brad Deshaies (also 14) shared the nod for youngest competitor with Thompson. Deshaies finished 82nd in 1:31:12.
