Nick Gould set out on the inaugural Pikes Peak APEX presented by RockShox last year under a bit of controversy at home. His wife was due to give birth to their daughter any day! Luckily he was able to stand on the 2nd step of the Master’s 40-49 podium without missing that special moment.
As our friend and announcer Dave Towle would say, the Pikes Peak APEX Strava Challenge is done and dusted for 2021! Dusty it was, as our two winners threw dirt on both of the former KOM/QOM holders and raged up Mt. Herman road in record time.
We hit go on our 2021 Strava Challenge just 10 days ago and already the existing KOM has been broken! Nick Gould, our 2020 winner, went out last weekend and crushed it up Mt. Herman to start off the challenge with a bang. His time of 36.54 knocked 2 minutes off the previous best time set back in 2014. The good news is that everyone has almost two more weeks to knock Nick out of that KOM spot, and the same for the ladies for the QOM.
This past Sunday, the Pikes Peak APEX Strava Challenge came to an end.
