• Breck-Epic: Stage 5

    After yesterday's suffer-fest in the 2nd part of the stage, Sonya and I settled into a easy pace off the start. The entire time, looking down the switchbacks to see a charging Kent Eriksen team. But after about 15 minutes of 'light' pedaling, Sonya started to have happy legs and began to charge up the mountain. That is not a figure of speech. We literally pushed up and over the 10 Mile Range which backdrops Breckenridge to the west. Pushing followed by riding followed by more pushing followed by a rip'n descent. Knock on wood, our day went smooth. No blow ups....no mechanicals. We crossed the line right at the 4 hour mark and put roughly 13 minutes into the 2nd place team from Steamboat Springs and taking our 5th stage win in just as many days.

    Here is Stage 5....where my red blood cells got a damn good workout!

    Friday is the last stage of the event. It is a fast one with some fantastic trails to rage on. Sonya and I will go back at it trying for the 6th win in a row and taking the overall at the 2010 Breck Epic.
