Last Weekend: Fairplay, Breckenridge & Frisco

  Last weekend I had the opportunity to frolic in the mountains with my wife and a couple of friends. We had perfect timing to see the Aspen’s leaves changing and somehow lucked out all weekend on gorgeous weather. If you are ever looking for a great weekend trip, or even a long day trip, check out the bike path from Breckenridge to Frisco (or beyond!)

Review: Buffalo Creek Mountain Biking

Back in mid-July, Emily and I finally made the quick trip to Buffalo Creek for some mountain biking. This trail system has a lot of hype around it and within a few miles of our route I realized why.

2014 Breck Epic: Final Day!

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…

2014 Breck Epic: Wheeler Pass

Daily race reports of the 2014 Breck Epic from Amy Thomas of the Yeti Beti MTB Team. It took 5 days but it finally hit me. I am tired. Stage 5, Wheeler Pass, is a deceivingly hard stage. On the course profile map it looks like a giant kidney bean over the Ten Mile Range between Breckenridge and Copper Mountain. At “only” 28 miles and @5000’ climbing, you…

Breck Epic: Keystone Aqueduct

Daily race reports of the 2014 Breck Epic from Amy Thomas of the Yeti Beti MTB Team. 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”.

2014 Breck Epic: Circumnavigation of Mount Guyot

Daily race reports of the 2014 Breck Epic from Amy Thomas of the Yeti Beti MTB Team. 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…

2014 Breck Epic: Colorado Trail

Daily race reports of the 2014 Breck Epic from Amy Thomas of the Yeti Beti MTB Team. Day 2 of Breck Epic defines the perfect pairing of ebb and flow. 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…

2014 Breck Epic: Pennsylvania Gulch

Daily race reports of the 2014 Breck Epic from Amy Thomas of the Yeti Beti MTB Team. 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…
