This year the Breck Epic attracted a really deep field of great mountain bikers, it’s cool how this race has become a must do for folks that love to ride epic single track. Myself being one of those folks who loves the skinny trails makes this race even cooler that it’s in my backyard.
From the start of Day 1, I could tell it was going to be a tough week! Day 2 was marred with mechanical problems suffering 2 flats, but other than that everything went really smooth. I was pretty consistent through the 6 days of racing, usually finishing in 4th or 5th place each day. Every year I forget how hard this race is but by the last day I remembered why this race is called “epic”. It was a complete joy to race with everyone this week and I was glad to finish the week off with a 4th place overall. Someone asked me before the race who was coming to race, I honestly didn’t know any names but I did know that It was going to be a bunch of fast guy’s and it was. I’m glad I had a chance to be involved in another year of the Breck Epic and even If I don’t race it next year I will definitely be involved in some way.
