There weren’t a ton of options for racing in 2020, and the inaugural Pikes Peak APEX presented by RockShox was one of a handful of races. With a COVID-19 Mitigation Plan in place, the event was able to pull off 4 days of action. Chloe Woodruff, one of the top mountain bike racers in the country, took notice. Chloe competed for Team USA in the 2016 Rio Olympics and is part of the Tokyo 2021 long team.
If you missed After Party for The Pikes Peak APEX presented by RockShox, we brought back Dave Towle to host and interview some of the top riders and get their stories from the race at the front. Dave talked to XTERRA World Champs, Bradley Weiss and Josiah Middaugh to get their thoughts about 'real' mountain bike racing.
'National mountain bike champion Chloe Woodruff and marathon national champions Rose Grant and Russell Finsterwald among many to attend the inaugural stage race in Colorado Springs.'
