On a day with perfect weather and perfect trail conditions at Winter Park Resort, top professional male mountain bike finisher Chris Baddick, 28 of Boulder had the race of his life.

From the first climb on Tipperary he had the lead.

“I could see Kelly at Vasquez Road and I just kept going,” he said after the race on Saturday, August 27.



He held the lead the entire race.

Next week he races the Fall Classic in Breckenridge and the following week will race in Vail to end the season.



“It is nice to be back in Colorado and racing close to home,” he said. “There is such a friendly vibe here.”

This was the final race of the Epic Singletrack race series held on Saturdays at Winter Park Resort.
