I had a great race. I won 1st place amateur overall...and was 13th overall. I was so stoked to finally have a good race, being a championship race made it that much better. The course was brutal, but amazing. This course is perfect for me and my strengths...full report coming soon.

Xterra Crested Butte: pretty much my favorite xterra race ever...if you like xterra and haven't done this you are missing out. beautiful swim, hard technical bike, and technical run. i think the elevation is around 9,000ft....so good. Unfortunately i felt real flat and had no juice the whole race. i was traveling for work the week before and training was super minimal. i started the swim ok, then i felt "weezy" and couldn't catch my breath. this continued during the whole bike, and my legs felt super heavy...i finished the bike and suffered through the run. I was 4th place amateur across the line, but should have been 1st or 2nd ( i was 2 min slower than last year). i still won my age group, but whatever. this race is awesome! the EPC team cleaned up...every single one of us WON our age group!
