With a personal best time of 8:11:02, Riddle bested a top notch American women's field that saw five women under the nine hour mark for the 62.1 mile distance. The win and top three finish means she has made her fourth consecutive national 100K team, that will compete in Winschoten, The Netherlands on September 11th.
