Breckenridge 100 Result

Breckenridge 100

MTBCoach on Podium Breckenridge 100

My 2nd 100 miler is the books.  It seemed like it took for ever to start.  I really enjoyed last years race, and couldn’t wait to do it again.  I wanted to come a little more prepared.

Quick Stats:

  • 21st Overall
  • 2nd in Age group
  • finished in 10:03:24
  • 7:30min faster then last year
  • Started in the RME Series Leaders Jersey

Going into the race, I felt like I was ready for this race, I really thought I could have a better time.  But from the first point it turned up I felt slugish and no power.   The long climb up to wheeler pass was slow, and I think I was 50th going into the single track.  The second loop I felt better and started pulling in a few people, but by the end of the second loop I was really didn’t want to go any further.  And on the third loop, I limped around, but still pulled in a couple of people and didn’t loose any spots.

I’m very happy with my result, and retained the RME Series leaders jersey.  I’m looking forward to the next 100 milers which is entirely on new dirt, the Pierres Hole 100, in Alta WY, which has about 3-4k more climbing then the Breck 100.
