Enduro Bites Ambassador Branden Rakita participated in the Ultimate Mountain Challenge at the Go Pro Games in Vail this past weekend and forwarded this photo journal to make the rest of us feel like sloths. - Brian
Six events over four days - a choose your own adventure to win the Ultimate Mountain Challenge at the Mountain Games Vail.
My 6 events:
Rocky Dog 5k with Shadow
Short Track MTB Relay with Jason Hanson
Aprés 5k Run
Down River Kayak Sprint
XC Expert Mountain Bike
Pepi's Face-Off - 30 minutes of steep uphill/downhill running on Pepi’s Face in Vail
It was a crazy weekend, but an absolute blast. I came up just short of defending my UMC title and placed 3rd. The top three finishers were separated by 1 point, and the top 6 by 4 points! You have to bring your A game to every event if you want a chance to win!
