Epic Singletrack Series at Winter Park: Feeling Good Heading in to Europe Trip

Disclaimer:
Big races in Crested Butte and elsewhere attracted many of the top names elsewhere this weekend.  Nonetheless, I was stoked to get the win in the pro field at the Winter Park Epic Singletrack series race today.

Front Range 60 MTB Race...and More!


Bee-lieve it or not, this swarming of stingers on a for-sale bike at Bear Creek Lake Park is not the only exciting event of the last week.  In three years of existence, the Front Range 60 has grown into a competitive and well-attended event.  Consisting of six ten-mile loops on a relatively flat course with short, punchy climbs, the race provided a good speed workout for me.

Bailey Hundo

Even in Colorado, it's rare indeed that one can drive just a few minutes from home to compete in a world-class event.  The Bailey Hundo, however, presented an exception to the rule and made for an excellent Father's Day weekend experience!

Teva Mountain Games 2011


Year after year (I think it's been 10 now), the Teva Mountain Games have brought together the country's greatest athletes in a wide variety of adventure sports.  And, year after year, I have sought to take home to the prize in the Ultimate Mountain Challenge, a multisport competition that combines a racer's times in a 20-minute downriver kayak race, a 90-minute mountain biking race, a 10k trail run, and, finally, a 30-minute, all-out, lung-burning road bike time trial up Vail Pass.

Iron Horse Bicycle Classic

The 40th annual Iron Horse Bicycle Classic was a great time for all!  A full Memorial Day weekend of fun sandwiched between seven-hour car rides was memorable indeed.
