The Breck Epic -- it's more than a grueling mountain bike race. Just looking at the miles and elevation gain for each of the 6 stages doesn't tell the whole story. Racing day after day and trying to recover all while being above 9,500 feet is a unique challenge. Sleep itself, even when not racing, can be difficult at this elevation. It's not unusual to get winded from simply walking a short flight of stairs in Breckenridge.
Congratulations to Nick Gould and teammate, Travis Hauck, for dominating the Open Men Duo category at TransRockies Classic with an overall time of 24:34:48 while winning all seven stages!
