What was the winning strategy for Colorado Springs local Jacob Mohoric, who successfully tracked down three Speed Club bottles?

My winning strategy to find the bottles was to setup alerts on Instagram and look for clues in the terrain while utilizing my knowledge of the trail system. As soon as I had an idea of where to go, I biked over to the hidden locations, often setting some PRs on the way and poked around until the bottles were found. The Pikes Peak Apex scavenger hunt was a ton of fun! I really enjoy scavenger hunts so being able to do one on my bike was awesome. Thanks to ASSOS USA and The Pikes Peak APEX for sponsoring #theAPEXhunt. 

I am really looking forward to the race this September!. The scavenger hunt was a good indicator about how fun the race will be while still being competitive. The race is a wonderful opportunity for Colorado Springs to show off that we know how to have fun with our high-quality trails.
