Mountain Bike Season Wrap Up | Breck Epic

My initial run at the Breck Epic 2016 was challenging.  For the full six days I was maxed out, fully pinned to hold onto the lead my partner and I had over the other coed duo teams, being the weaker of a pair takes a bit to stomach. The rules are stay together, the challenge is to communicate.  We certainly had our setbacks but to race in such an extreme setting of elevation, intensity, and duration make for as much if not more exhilaration than fatigue.  We maintained our lead throughout and upon the conclusion of the week I felt like a different person.  I had taken on challenges I hadn’t even thought to before and felt as though I was seeing the world with a fresh perspective filled with the confidence of what I could overcome. 

I spend the majority of the year seeking and pursuing challenges almost exclusively as an individual.  It is a second nature for me, perhaps born out of the excitement and fulfillment I get from being outside of my comfort zone, and the challenge of finding anyone with a matching enthusiasm. This challenge also seems to be more difficult to find with a growing breadth of experience and the passing of time. That rare opportunity to race as a team really drives home how incredibly rewarding it is to step outside of the usual pursuit of individualistic goals.

My ideal partner would be someone who shares my drive, determination, and compassion while also being similar in fitness and ability.  I take pride in being able to mentor, motivate, and encourage but also want the comfort of knowing that when the tables are turned someone has my back as well and I’m not stuck bearing the full burden of responsibility. …

The Elevate-KHS Pro Cycling Team had a phenomenal campaign at the Tour of Utah. The team was diligent in their preparation for the event by holding two attitude training camps in the weeks preceding the event. After spending 3 weeks in Truckee, CA the team moved to Park City, UT for another 2.5 weeks to train at altitude and to also have the opportunity to ride the upcoming stages. The opportunity to not only acclimate to the environment but also see each of the stages provided the athletes and staff the chance to begin the event with the confidence that they had come prepared.

Mountain Bike Season Update #8 | Winter Park w/ Rebecca Gross

I’m not a huge fan of weekend mountain travel.  Don’t get me wrong, I love the mountains but sitting for hours on a Friday evening of stop and go traffic while driving a loaded vehicle up a 15% grade in 90+ degree weather with 5k of your angriest friends who have the exact same idea only to repeat the feat 48 hours later pointing east is in high competition with the thought “is it worth it?”
After an entire season of Friday afternoon Denver mass exodus to high ground avoidance, I packed up the van and headed up the mountains to our community junior mountain bike camp.  There’s nothing like a big smack in the face from cool temperatures and gorgeous mountain views to remind you that it should be your mission to spend as much time as humanly possible making the most of such worldly wonders.

So after camp I returned the next weekend to race, and then again the following weekend after that.  With my fat tire campaign winding down to just a re-attack of the six-day life changing Breck Epic in August, I rekindled my love for travel in a few short drives up the mountains.   The Winter Park series covers the summer snow free calendar months but I typically end up racing the one weekend that correlates with the Colorado Freeride Festival.  I enjoy the bustle of the added racers and the opportunities of getting a glimpse into the world of big travel and bigger air.  While this year the cross-country racing fell on the weekend preceding and then again after the festival, I was hardly a chore to convince me to come up and shred some singletrack awesomeness

This race begins with a thirty minute climb…
