Papago 6 Hour Mountain Bike Race

Tempe, AZ • Jan 28 2023…

A fun and interesting race in the heart of Tempe, AZ. Some rough technical terrain and fast hard-packed gravel along the canal riding. Each lap was 6.6 miles long with a run through a long culvert twice each lap that was dark and had two way traffic. The climbing was not insignificant with about 450 feet of climbing each lap. Considering each lap had a flat 2.5-3 miles along the canal there were some tough rocky climbs.

Kim Bear: 5h 47m 04s, 9/11, Open Women
Jan Bear: 5h 44m 38s, 15/44, Open Men

El Paso Puzzler 50 Mile MTB

El Paso, TX • Jan 15 2023…

A very tough 50 mile mountain bike in the Franklin Mountains on the outskirts of El Paso. I think this is the toughest 50 mile mountain bike race due to the technical terrain and you are constantly going up or down. I rode the course with Pile Simpson my Cape Epic partner this year.

Jan Bear: 6h 32m 17s, 24/36, Men 60+

There were only 36 finishers of the 63 starters. The last finisher was at 9:16:50.
