Results, video, photos: Breck Epic stage 2, Colorado Trail

The 2019 Breck Epic 6-day, multi-stage mountain bike race continued on Tuesday as sunshine and clear skies greeted racers on the 41.4-mile second stage, the Colorado Trail.

Cyclists climbed 6,565 feet of elevation on the day, as Park City-native Keegan Swenson won his second consecutive stage after ending the first day up 2 minutes and 42 seconds on Russell Fintsterwald of Colorado Springs. Finsterwald finished second as well on Tuesday, while Ryan Standish of Heber City, Utah joined them on the stage’s podium in third place.

Standish, who won the Firecracker 50 mountain bike race earlier this summer in Breckenridge, entered Tuesday’s stage in seventh place, his stage-1 time 6 minutes and 6 seconds off the pace of Swenson.

In the women’s race, the tight battle between the top two cyclists continued on Monday. Czech rider Katerina Nash won her second consecutive stage, edging Hannah Finchamp by a hair. Nash entered the day up 2 minutes and 39 seconds of the second-place Finchamp.

Tuesday’s third stage will be one of the most intimidating of the week, the 39.2-mile circumnavigation of Mount Guyot. The stage is the steepest of the week for the riders, climbing 7,100 feet in total elevation.
