People ask me what is 303? My answer before March might have been a little different answer than today. Different but not really. It’s always been about the endurance community; offering a place to find information, read stories about people, events and the industry that supports it all. Connecting everything.
Like everyone, Covid has made us re-look at things. It crushed our advertising support that centered around events primarily. We had already been moving to broadly expand our coverage and interest well beyond races and events. Last year we committed major capital to buying a media trailer with the intention of rolling to races and rides all summer. This trailer is hand built by Colorado Teardrops in Boulder. We can produce videos and photos with people standing on top. We can do interviews and podcasts inside So now what? Read more
We caught up with Russell and Kalan to talk about their 240 mile and 20K of climbing in a single day’s ride. As it turns out, we aren’t the only ones Strava-stalking. I was on my Thursday run with my buddy Aaron Monroe and I started to tell him about these two guys who did a 240 mile single day ride – he replied “you interviewed Kalan Beisel?” For those of you who live in the front-range of Colorado, you’ll find this route absolutely fascinating (and mind boggling). For those of you not in the area, don’t worry, we’ve got a lot of interesting information that you can apply to your riding or perhaps inspire you do an epic ride where you live! Read more

That prize was the biggest ever for a women’s race. Read more
On Saturday, professional triathlete and Boulder native, Sam Long “Everested” a combination of Lee Hill Road and Deer Trail Road. In exactly 10 hours, Sam ascended and descended those roads 15 times. He rode a 133 miles and climbed 29,219 feet averaging 254 watts. Think about all those descents at near zero watts–pretty impressive. The 4.52 mile climb is notorious in the Boulder averaging an 8% grade for nearly 1,900 feet of climbing. By comparison the climb on Lookout Mountain, Pillars to Post, is almost the same distance but climbs 1,200 feet, For math fanatics, there is a slight hill on the descent of Lee Hill that adds to the totals.

“The experiences have really helped me realize how precious life can be, so it’s hard to find me on a bad day” – Paralympic time trial specialist Kyle Pitman. A war veteran and US Marine, Kyle sustained injuries that led him to the para classification and road to Tokyo!
