OutThere Colorado: $50,000 prize purse up for mountain bike event in Colorado

The Pikes Peak APEX

Thanks to OutThere Colorado for covering the announcement of this exciting event!

Tuesday morning at USA Cycling headquarters, before announcing “the largest mountain bike race Colorado Springs has ever seen,” Micah Rice was roaming the room, at one point stopping to shake hands with a stranger.

Chris Franz introduced himself: “I’m just a random person.”

Just a random person who’s been hitting the local trails for the better part of 15 years. But for Franz and others like him, Tuesday’s announcement was perhaps most meaningful.
