Mountain Bike racing has begun in Winter Park! The Hill Climb Kick-off is always the first race in the Epic Singletrack Series. It is also my least favorite of the 7 races. It starts at the base and climbs over 2,000 ft of elevation in 5.3 miles up the mountain road to the top of Mary Jane where the finish line is. I had numerous small issues throughout the race not feeling the best but I was able to push it out and win Expert 30-39. Love you Winter Park but glad the Hill-Climb is behind me! I do much better when there is a lot more to do biking besides climb.
