PINKHAM NOTCH — Newton's Revenge, the grueling 7.6-mile bicycle race up the Mount Washington Auto Road to the summit, is marking its 10th year this weekend.
On the men's side, defending champion 29-year-old Cameron Cogburn is scheduled to take part in the race Saturday. Seven-time women's winner Marti Shea dropped out because of a knee injury.
Cogburn's time last year was 53 minutes, 12 seconds; Shea's was an hour, five minutes and 53 seconds.
Newton's Revenge is the first of two bicycle races up the Mount Washington Auto Road each summer. The 43rd Mount Washington Auto Road Bicycle Hillclimb, a fundraiser for the Tin Mountain Conservation Center in Albany, N.H., is scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 15.
