With temperatures soaring to new records in many northern Michigan cities, there was no ice for the Iceman, or slop for the Slush Cup, but there were over 4,400 riders in the popular bicycle races held this weekend in Kalkaska.

The 28-mile Iceman was won by Jeremy Horgan-Kobelski and Alison Dunlap, both of Colorado. Both are also Olympic riders. Horgan-Kobelski turned in the winning time for the men at 1:34:02, and Dunlap finished in 1:46:41.

In addition to the 28-mile Iceman from Kalkaska to Traverse City through the Pere Marquette State Forest, is an eight-mile "Slush Cup," and the "Sno-Cone" - a race for kids under 12. The event is the largest single-day mountain bike event in the country.

Thanks to the many corporate sponsors, first place men and women earned $3,000. The runner-ups received $2,000. Third-place finishers took home $1,500.
