Fulda Challenge racer Greg McHale of Dawson City, Yukon Territory, passes over the Summit Creek bridge as he approaches the finish line of Wednesday's mountain bike race at Fraser, British Columbia. McHale won the event - an uphill race from Skagway to Fraser - and leads the men's standings of the 10-day extreme sports competition. There are nine two-person, coed teams competing. McHale and his wife, Denise, are the only non-European team in the event and lead through five stages. More details will run in a future Empire.
