Last Saturday, race organizer Tobin Behling became a pioneer for mountain bike events in this new era of COVID-19.

Colorado Cycling Community Saddened by the Recent Passing of Two Top Cyclists

The Pikes Peak APEX sends condolences to the teammates, friends and family of both Ben Sonntag and David Krimstock. We were hoping to see both of these talented mountain bikers battling it out on the slopes of Pikes Peak this September.

The Colorado cycling community is saddened by the loss of these two top cyclists over the past few weeks. They will be missed. Both riders were graduates of Fort Lewis College in Durango—one of the strongest collegiate cycling programs in North America.
