Updated Race Report

Under absolute beautiful weather the 2011 Winter Park Epic Series kicked off with the start of the Men Pro field. Within the first 200 yards, Brady Kappius, one of this years favored riders to win, blows his front cx tire leaving him to ride on his rims the next 5 miles! and still pulling off a sub 40 minute time! The snow lined course was smooth and fast giving most of the riders (minus Brady) the advantage. The post race recovery at Winter Park Base reminded me more of a bike tour than a race, they had free food and recovery drinks while we all awaited the results. This weekend cyclist had LOTS of other options to make (check the Colorado Cycling Calendar to see all the choices we had) but still a pretty good turn out was there, many more would have made the road a little crowded.

Online reg at - link soon! Sorry – there will be no day-of registration.

Like many of you, we've been awed and inspired by some of the great experiential races out there. Events like the Firecracker 50, the Gunnison Growler and the Laramie Enduro provide both a stout challenge and feature the singletrack and scenery we all crave as mountain bikers.

Honey Stinger was born and bred in Steamboat Springs, home to some of the highest quality riding in the Rockies. For years we've been talking about a backcountry race that showcases our world-class riding and our terrific community.
