The team of Janice Tower, Darcy Davis, Stephen Tower and Mark Davis set a record in the 200-mile tanden relay Saturday in the Fireweed 400, Alaska's biggest bike race.
About 600 cyclists raced distances of 400, 200, 100 and 50 miles in the two-day event. The 200-mile race went from Sheep Mountain Lodge on the Glenn Highway to Valdez, while all other races started and ended at Sheep Mountain.
The Towers and the Davises teamed up for a time of 10 hours, 21 minutes, 35 seconds, slicing more than an hour off the 2007 record of 11:27:59.
