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 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.
