Breck Epic - Stage III - Breckenridge, Colorado

Racers tackled on of Summit County’s classic routes today – the circumnavigation of Mt. Guyot. Totaling 44 miles and 9000 feet of climbing, the route crossed the Continental Divide twice, showcasing some of Summit County’s very best terrain along the way.

Course marking sabotage late in the stage saw about a dozen riders head off course losing somewhere between 10-15 minutes each. At the nightly racer meeting it was decided that while unfortunate, times would stand. The elite field was the most affected and to a person they showed incredible maturity and sportsmanship. It should also be noted that Panache CycleWear rider Colby Pearce went the right way, put the mental dots together that the course was somehow marked incorrectly, and headed back downhill to fix the mark. In other words, Colby Pearce in one single act of pragmatic selflessness, saved the race for everyone behind him...which was pretty much everyone.

Tomorrow brings another day of long decents and spectacular vistas as racers tackle the Aqueduct stage, taking them to Keystone and back over some of the most magnificent terrain in all of Colorado. Stay tuned for updates from our end.
