L'epic avec JG: musings de la musette
He all, wanted to pass along the chance to follow one of the newest redstoners through the Breck Epic.
The Breck Epic, July 5-10 2009, is a 6-day ultra-endurance mountain bike stage race held in the sprawling backcountry of Breckenridge, Colorado. After a 10-mile time-trial on day one athletes will contest 5 subsequent stages spending 4-8 hours on course each day, most of it over 10,000 feet...check out the course profile HERE.
The race does have a tender side: Proceeds from the inaugural “B.E.” benefit local open space initiatives and trail improvements. Registration for 2009 is still open!
Join us at the Oskar Blues Brews & Bikes Blog for L'epic avec JG: musings de la musette.
