John Parson of Palmdale placed second in the men's pro/expert division in 2:04.23.
"I knew John would close the gap on every climb, so I had to make the downhills count," said the 34-year-old Ray. "Plus, I've been riding this trail half my life. That kind of helps, too."
Clovis' Kristi Eastin, a Fresno State classics professor who used to be a pro mountain bike and road racer, won the women's pro/expert division in 2:35:55, followed by Amber Finch of Truckee in 2:36.51.
