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.
Time to start planning for 2021! Without a doubt, Buffalo Lodge Bicycle Resort was a hit in 2020, and owner Torie Giffin, along with her team, received rave reviews from everyone we know who stayed there. They’re inviting us back for 2021, AND we’ve worked out a discount. APEX participants will receive 50% off Signature Rooms and 25% off Standard Rooms. Buffalo Lodge Bicycle Resort is a historic bicycle-themed motor lodge, with amenities and activities suited to cyclists. Availability will be limited. Don’t wait and risk missing out!
When registration opened for the 2021 Pikes Peak APEX presented by RockShox, Tom Turney, from Monument, Colorado was the first to sign up. Colorado Springs' own Russell Finsterwald, Men's Overall Winner for 2020, reached out to welcome Tom and ask what's he's looking forward to at this year's event.
