BRECKENRIDGE — The Breck Epic dished out its biggest stage of the week on Tuesday, one complete with snowfields and onlookers in the form of mountain goats on the above tree line slopes of Mount Guyot. And in the end, race leaders Keegan Swenson and Katerina Nash won their third straight stage to remain on top overall in the men’s and women’s Union Cycliste Internationale elite professional races.

Swenson, who entered the day with a 4 minute and 25 second lead on Russell Fintsterwald, won the 39.2-mile stage, which is the steepest of the tournament at 7,100 feet of elevation gain.

Swenson, a Park City native, was trailed on the day by surging Luis Mejia, of Colombia, and Russel Finsterwald, of Colorado Springs. The stage was pivotal for Mejia, as the mountain biker entered the day 10 minutes back of overall podium position. Fintsterwald kept distance with Swenson after entering the day trailing by 4 1/2 minutes.

In the women’s race, Czech rider Katerina Nash won her third of three stages, followed again in second by California native Hannah Finchamp, who was behind Nash by just over three minutes entering the day.

The slip n’ slide section up on French today was no joke. The queen stage didn't disappoint with steep climbing, high alpine riding, sweet, sweet singletrack … and the snowfield. #Guyot #BreckEpicVideo: Devon O'Neil

It appears to be a two-woman race between those two CLIF pro team riders, though Evelyn Dong rounded out the podium with a third-place finish on the stage after entering the day in fourth-place overall, just over six minutes back of overall podium position.

The six-day multistage mountain bike race will continue Wednesday with the fourth stage of the series, the 41.2-mile, 6,473-foot elevation gain Aqueduct course in the backcountry near Keystone. The stage will be a slight respite for racers after the grueling circumnavigation of Mount Guyot on Tuesday under sunny skies.
