“We are deeply proud that the Bailey HUNDO will have 250 racers this year who are so committed to supporting youth biking initiatives in Colorado and trail building in the Platte Canyon area that they are willing to raise much-needed funds and spend months training for this 100-mile endurance race,” said Bailey HUNDO Executive Director Noah Aptekar. “The Bailey HUNDO provides the opportunity; it is the racers who make the impact on the
state of cycling for Colorado’s youth and in the Platte Canyon area through their dedication to raising funds and participating in such an extreme and exciting event.”
The Bailey HUNDO was started in 2010 with only 150 racers and was a huge success! The top three finishers in the Men’s Open/Pro category were Olympian Jeremy Horgan-Kobelski (6:36), Colorado mountain biking legend Dave Wiens (6:49), and Team Epic Endurance racer Brian Alders (6:56). The top finishing times in the Women’s categories were turned in by Sonya Looney (8:19) and Eszter Horanyi (9:04, singlespeed category). The Bailey HUNDO looks forward to attracting an even more competitive field in 2011.
