Jeff Kerkove joins the show to discuss his recent experience at the Breck Epic in Breckenridge, Colorado. He, along with teammate, Yuki Ikeda, took the win in the 6-day Men's Duo Category. They had a great race all week, taking the win in each of the individual stages. It didn't come easy though. Jeff and Yuki pushed each other hard, raced as a team to get through the painful climbing and enjoy the sweet, flowing singletrack to grab the final #1 and much coveted belt buckle.
The Breck Epic is a 6-day and 3-day stage race based in the middle of one of the best mountain biking areas in the country and world. It is composed of large, backcountry loops between 35 and 50 miles run in a cloverleaf format; each loop starts and finishes within a mile from downtown Breckenridge and utilizes the sprawling network of trails in both Summit and Park Counties.
The Breck Epic's first rule? It's "Don't Be a Dick."
