Alex Lussier - Colorado Trail Race

After Many Years of Threatening to enter a bike-pack race I finally pulled the trigger on the 2015 Colorado Trail Race. I thing this one mostly Because It fit in well with my schedule. I soon Realized That bike-packing races come in very different flavors. As I Pushed my bike up yet Reviews another high mountain pass gold, i could not help comparing this goal to a 500 mile enduro. The Colorado Trails is a hiking trail Predominantly bike and the acts Alternately have a fantastic enabler and a ridiculous and awkward object That You lug up or down a rocky path.

Day 1 Had Me climbing over 21,000 feet from Durango, Silverton through, and beyond into the San Juan Mountains. The race started at 4:00 am and 1:30 am It was the next day by the time I-settled down for the "night." I was lucky enough to find Reviews another competitor to share the last 7 hour push into the night. We Travelled 98 miles at 12,800 feet and bivied. It was a weird experience to be out of breath When I was try trying to sleep and this Would come to bite me later.
