The Rocky Mountain Endurance Series, directed by Warriors Cycling, has become a staple on the Colorado mountain biking race calendar because of the quality courses, organized planning, information, and race days, and the great overall experience and atmosphere. Most of the current events are relatively new, as well as new to the series. Two of the 2013 planned races have been around for several years.
The Breckenridge 100 results date back to 2005. Because of the years it’s been around, the extreme nature of the race, and the difficulty, it’s maintained its role as the anchor of the series.
The Battle the Bear, which was known in previous years as the Front Range 50 and 60, is the second oldest race on the current 2013 schedule.
