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 expect the day to finish easy peasy. What the map fails to show is that most of that climbing comes in the first 7 miles and tops out at 12,460’ at the summit. Only 5 of those miles are rideable.
