The 2019 Breck Epic 6-day, multi-stage mountain bike race got off to a wet and muddy start on Sunday as more than 400 riders raced through the first 36 miles of this year’s 211-mile course.

In the end, Park City-native Keegan Swenson won Day 1’s Pennsylvania Creek stage, which climbs 5,700 feet of total elevation gain. The stage initially brings riders south of Breckenridge before looping around Mount Argentine and riding back north west of Bald Mountain. The final half of the stage then takes riders through the trail network east of Breckenridge, over Farncomb and Humbug Hill before riding north of Mineral and Prospect hills and south of Gibson Hill. The race then concluded at Carter Park in Breckenridge.

Swenson was joined on Sunday’s overall men’s podium by Colorado Springs rider Russell Finsterwald in second place. On the women’s side, Katerina Nash of the Czech Republic won the stage.

Monday’s second stage will send riders out for a 41.4-mile, 6,565-foot elevation gain route on the Colorado Trail.
