Silver Rush 2012 Sprint to Top of Ski Hill Winner

Although the Silver Rush 50 is a great race for preparing for Leadville 100, I skipped it this year. I was up in Leadville to pre-ride the Leadville 100 course so I stopped and watched the start of the Silver Rush 50. Here are a few of the photos I took and I have more Silver Rush 50 start photos here.

The photo above is of the first racer up the ski hill getting a gold coin from Ken Clouber. The gold coin that qualify for the Leadville 100. This guy gave it his all coming up the hill so he must really want to race the Leadville 100.

UltraRob Leadville 100 2011

David Kutcipal from 303Cycling got some great photos of the Leadville 100 mountain bike race on Saturday. Unfortunately he caught me during one of my on bike naps. The photo above of me hints at how very dusty it was.

The photos from the official photographers, zazoosh, are also now online. They’re searchable by last name or racer number.

My 8 year old daughter also had fun at the Pipeline aid station outbound taking photos with my camera. I’ve glanced through them and I’ll post some of them but haven’t gotten them edited yet.

Mountain Biking Position to Avoid

May 15th, 2011

Endo in Palmer Park during Sand Creek Mountain Bike Race

Update: Sand Creek Series Palmer Park mountain bike race photos are now posted.

It can happen to the best mountain bikers but this is a mountain biking position to avoid.

It was a good day of mountain bike racing out at Palmer Park today for the first race in the 2011 Sand Creek Series even though the day started out wet and stayed cloudy and cool all day.

I’m still going through the photos that I took but the one above is definitely the photo of the day. The photo below is the shot just before he crashed. The racer did ride on after a couple minutes but I think he and his bike were a bit beat up.

Colorado College Criterium

April 16th, 2007

Colorado College Criterium with Pikes Peak in Background

On Saturday I went and watched some of the Colorado College Criterium. I watched the Men’s Cat 3/4 race and part of the Women’s and Men’s Pro 1/2 race. We had one Pikes Peak Velo member in each of those races. I heard there were more in the Men’s Cat 4/5 race. The fields were small in the races I watched but I expected that with the Boulder Roubaix being rescheduled to the same day because of bad weather on the original date.

I hung out most of the time on the climb on the south side of the Fine Arts Center. The climb is less than a block long but it has a pretty good grade to it. I raced the same course when I was in college and that hill certainly hurt after 30 minutes of racing. I took several pictures with my auto everything point and click camera. It takes pretty good scenery pictures but action shots are tricky.
