Sports Strategies announces another stacked race for the 4-day mountain bike challenge on the slopes of Pikes Peak. $25,000 is up for grabs, split evenly between the men and women’s top finishers.
When you coach and crew for a lot of endurance athletes, you spend a lot of time discussing the choice between bottles and a hydration pack. The reason is because both are perfect; they’re just not perfect for every situation.
Sports Strategies announces a two-year partnership between SRAM and Pikes Peak APEX. The iconic RockShox brand will return as presenting sponsor of the event for 2022 and 2023.
Watch as over 25 riders are interviewed at the 2021 Pikes Peak APEX presented by RockShox and learn what makes this a 'can't miss' event on everyone's fall calendar.
Sports Strategies announces a successful close to the 2021 Pikes Peak APEX presented by RockShox following 4 days, 120 miles of dirt and over 15,000 feet of climbing. Alexis Skarda and Keegan Swenson, both from Santa Cruz/SRAM, beat strong fields to win the overall general classification at The APEX. The men’s field featured a who’s-who of American mountain bike racing plus EF Education-Nippo riders Lachlan Morton and Alex Howes, while the women’s field ended up being a tight three-way battle between three well-known domestic pros.
We were back to America The Beautiful Park for the final day - Stage 4: Cheyenne Canyon.

Last Saturday, race organizer Tobin Behling became a pioneer for mountain bike events in this new era of COVID-19. Fans of the sport were watching closely and hopefully, as so many other events have fallen, or fallen out of favor. With few surviving and a limited calendar remaining for 2020, we were all rooting for the Telluride 100 to pull off a safe and fun event.
