The greatest gift this season is my health. I'm looking forward to skiing on Christmas Day, celebrating the evening with Bike Shop Girl's family, and maybe a few more road miles to start off 2015. Happy Holidays and Cheers to Health in the New Year....

Yesterday was the final stage of racing at the 2014 Breck Epic for Amy Thomas. Catch all of her stage recaps here! It's really hard to believe today was the last day. While I am relieved to no longer sleep in compression tights and eat boatloads of sugar throughout the day, I am really sad it's over. This week of riding I will never forget, in part to not just the amazing amounts of hard riding, but to this great community that has formed over the week. I hope to ride again with so many new friends.

Over the hump!

Day 4 is a monster loop that brings us from Breckenridge to Keystone and back with a few big ridges in between. Today we rode about 42 miles and 6500' of climbing and was reminded that "it ain't called the Breck Epic Tickle Fight".

Three down, three to go!!

While the major goal of this week is to get through all 6 stages, there was one stage in particular that has caused some PTSD since 2010. As the name suggests, the Circumnavigation of Mount Guyot is not the shortest point from A to B. It's a BIG day, lots of steep, unrideable (for most of us) climbing, with some of the gnarliest technical descents in the county. On fresh legs, these trails are brutal. Coming on day 3, it makes it all the much more trickier to not make mistakes.

It's the Colorado Trail stage and that name says it all. If you only have ONE trail to ever ride in Colorado,  ride ANY section of the Colorado Trail. It's all amazing and you will be rewarded for your efforts.

After what seemed like an eternity of waiting for Breck Epic to start, it finally happened. With a record attendance of over 400 racers, the start was definitely a little nerve wracking. One of the cardinal rules of the Breck Epic is "don't be a dick". With everyone gunning for good position on the initial singletrack descent with only a 2 mile road climb to spread out that large of a field, I can happily say everyone (at least within 10 riders of me) was really respectful.
