In our first episode of The APEX podcast, host John Croom chats with Missy Ross about her transition to cycling, what brought her to ride in The APEX in 2021 and what she is looking forward to from the 2022 APEX Endurance Camp and Pikes Peak APEX presented by RockShox. They also cover where to get a bite and a brew in Colorado Springs. Take a look.
Watch as Cannondale documented Alex Howes and Lachlan Morton having ‘pure fun’ in Colorado Springs. For us, it was pure fun having these guys join us for 2021, and watching this video documenting their time in Colorado Springs was a bonus.
We were back to America The Beautiful Park for the final day - Stage 4: Cheyenne Canyon. Same start line, but this time riders headed towards Cheyenne Canyon and Capt'n Jacks before returning to receive their finishers glass and a non-alcoholic beer from Athletic Brewing Company. After cooling down, everyone met up at Goat Patch Brewing for the APEX Awards & After Party co-hosted by Springs Wealth Group.
Today we rolled out of America The Beautiful Park for the Gold Camp stage. Riders were called up to the start line positioned in downtown Olympic City, USA between the bridge to the US Olympic & Paralympic Museum and The APEX Outdoor Festival & Expo. Stage 3 ended with Alexis Skarda and Keegan Swenson leading.
Amazing day in the Town of Monument. Exceptional hospitality as the mayor and community joined us downtown send the riders up Mt Herman Road for an epic day of riding. Congratulations to Stage 2 Leaders Alexis Skarda and Keegan Swenson and overall GC Leader Evelyn Dong.
