The Tarahumara hadn鈥檛 just gone from last to first; they鈥檇 done serious damage to the record bookin the process. Victoriano was the oldest winner in race history, eighteen-year-old Felipe Torreswas the youngest finisher, and Team Tarahumara was the only squad to ever grab three of the topfive spots鈥攅ven though its two top finishers had a combined age of nearly one hundred. 鈥淩eally?

Top of the list was his amazing internalGPS; Fisher was like one of those house cats who reappear at home in Wichita after getting lost ona family vacation in Alaska. His ability to sniff his way through the most bewildering canyons maybe unrivaled on the planet, and it appears to be mostly raw instinct. Fisher had never seen anythingdeeper than a ditch before leaving the midwest for the University of Arizona, but once there, heimmediately began plunging into places better left unplunged. He was still a student when hebegan exploring Arizona鈥檚 mazelike Mogollon canyon range, venturing in just after the head ofPhoenix鈥檚 Sierra Club killed there in not-uncommon flash flood.
