Hotter 'n Hell 100 2013 Has Most "Triple Threaters" Ever

- Cyclists are already putting the pedals to the metal as this year's Hotter 'n Hell Hundred events got underway this morning.

Athletes took to the Wee-Chi-Tah Trail starting at 10 a.m.

That was for the off-road mountain bike trail races that took cyclists 12 miles on the Wee-Chi-Tah Trail by The Falls and ended at the J.S. Bridwell Ag Center.

Those bikers are just some of the thousands that make up some record-breaking Hotter 'n Hell numbers.

A total of 391 cyclists took to the mountain biking trails this morning.

That number was capped at 225 last year.

Sunday, 358 runners will compete in the half-marathon, while 97 will run in the 10K race.

Those numbers are expected to increase as registration is on-going.

That's a total of 846 athletes participating in this year's off-road events.

This is the second biggest year for advanced registrants at 8519.

Last year was the record breaker with more than nine-thousand registering early.

This year tops all past years for the number of Triple Threaters: those that competed in the mountain bike races, will ride in tomorrow's 100 mile ride, and will run in Sunday morning's half-marathon.

This year 253 brave athletes will be dubbed Triple Threaters.
