The word on the street (er, trail) is that Mick McCormack is planning a multi-stage mountain bike race in Breckenridge, CO next July called “Breck Epic.” The 5-day race will be configured to start and finish in the same location each day rather than go point-to-point like most stage races. This means logistics are easier but it also means there’s the potential for a better spectator experience. And although the race is said to be based out of Breckenridge, this ain’t no resort ride – expect the course to stick to high elevation, remote backcountry trails and offer serious technical and aerobic challenges. Weekend warriors need not apply.
While there’s nothing official about the race yet, keep checking breckepic.com to find out more once the details are worked out.
