PINKHAM NOTCH, N.H. — A 32-year-old Boulder man has come within 8 seconds of his own course record in winning a grueling bicycle race up the steep Mount Washington Auto Road.

Tom Danielson on Sunday pedaled the 7.6-mile road in 49 minutes, 32 seconds to win the Newton's Revenge race ahead of nearly 200 other cyclists. The contest was scheduled for Saturday but was pushed back a day because of bad weather.

Danielson finished 11 minutes, 55 seconds ahead of second-place finisher Charles McCarthy, of Middlebury, Vt. Danielson, who set the course record in 2002, grew up in East Lyme, Conn., and now lives in Boulder.

The top women's finisher was 47-year-old Marti Shea, of Marblehead, Mass., who finished in 1 hour, 9 minutes, 36 seconds.
