The weather in Breckenridge, Colorado during this event has been brutal for the last 2 years. The wind whips the snow around creating white-out conditions and cuts to the bone. Each year, I am more and more impressed by these people. Their amazing abilities to train for such an event in all the different elements as well as come out on race day to face Mother Nature with a smirk that says “bring it.”
The racers, all of them, are intriguing, motivating, friendly and so down to earth that they inspire you to be a better you. A few photos from the race are below … challenged by the weather, but you certainly get a sense of the scene. Enjoy the climb!
