Like many cyclists in the area, the experts at Enduro Bites moved to Colorado Springs and experienced the stress of altitude first hand. They have developed products to support high-altitude adventures by helping your cardiovascular system carry more oxygen to working muscle and allow you to do more work with this oxygen when it gets there.

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.
