Hector Riveros Paez Wins a Showdown in Steamboat While Gretchen Reeves Walks Away with a Win

The Steamboat Stinger has grown a lot over the years. From a race of 200-300 mostly-local riders to a full on event that sells out in minutes with over 500 racers from all over Colorado and Utah. The Stinger's special brand of great trails and fun atmosphere keeps the competitors smiling and coming back for more.

The Stinger is a 50-mile race featuring two 25-mile laps up and over Emerald Mountain in Steamboat Springs. 

This year's race featured a stacked field of heavy hitters from around Colorado and Utah. The men's race saw Rotor USA rider Hector Riveros Paez take the early lead with his familiar all-out climbing style. With over 3,500 feet of climbing per lap being fast on the climbs is a good strategy in Steamboat. Utahn Nate Miller (Light in Motion/Honeystinger) was the only rider capable of matching Riveros Paez on the climbs and Miller actually held the lead at the end of lap one. 

It wasn't meant to be for the Utah rider however. He lost his lead to Riveros Paez on lap two and slowly faded back as the miles wore on. Now riders like Jay Henry (Tokyo Joes) and Chris Baddick (Red Ace Organics) would take their shot and the Columbian climber. 

On the long final descent Henry launched a vicious attack shredding the last miles of singletrack on a mission to overtake the leader. Unfortunately for the chaser, Riveros Paez proved he can do more than just climb as he held off Henry's formidable pace to take the win in just under 4 hours and 10 minutes.

Baddick finished third just over a minute back followed by Carter Shaver (Cycleton) and Jakub Valigura (92Fifty)

The women's race saw a dominating performance from endurance specialist Gretchen Reeves (Tokyo Joe's). Reeves is a major threat at any long distance event and showed her skill in Steamboat crushing the field. She was the only woman to finish in under 5 hours and beat a majority of the men competing in the event. 

Second went to Meghan Sheridan (Utahmountainbiking.com) who upgraded to full-suspension for the first time prior to the race. The change worked well for the Utah rider as she handled the rooty, tree-lined course with skill despite a tough challenge from Deidre York (Red Ace Organics) who finished third.

Fourth place went to Blair Vajda (Boulder Running Comp) followed by local racer Hannah Williams (Honeystinger).
