BRECKENRIDGE — Make it four-for-four for Keegan Swenson and Katerina Nash. The top professional cyclists at this year’s Breck Epic stage mountain bike race each won their fourth stage in four days — the Aqueduct in the backcountry between Breckenridge and Keystone — to maintain their leads with two stages remaining in the six-day race.

Swenson’s Stage 4 time of 3 minutes, 11 seconds and 39 seconds was just under five minutes ahead of overall second-place racer Russell Finsterwald. Finsterwald completed the 41.2-mile, 6,473-foot elevation gain stage in 03:16:10.04, the seventh-fastest time of the day in the elite men’s Union Cycliste Internationale division. Through four of six days, Finsterwald trails Swenson by 11 minutes and is 7 1/2 minutes ahead of overall third-place rider Nash Dory, who took fourth place on the stage.

Entering Thursday’s Wheeler stage, the top three overall men’s riders clock in at 12:18:23.65 (Swenson), 12:29:25.04 (Finsterwald) and 12:36:54.81 (Dory). The top three men’s riders for Stage 4 were Swenson, Luis Mejia (12:38:39.07 overall, 03:12:32.72 Stage 4) and Richard Cypress Gorry (12:38:35.78, 03:12:48.63).

In the women’s race, the top three overall women also went 1-2-3 on Wednesday. Nash’s Stage 4 time of 03:54:43.72 was just under 90 seconds ahead of Hannah Finchamp’s time of 03:56:10.35. Heading into the 24-mile, 5,227-foot elevation gain Wheeler stage Thursday, it appears to be a two-woman race between the CLIF pro team cyclists, as Finchamp is back 7 minutes and 16 seconds.

Evelyn Dong, who is 32 minutes back of Nash, joined them on the podium with a Stage 4 time just more than four hours.

Thursday’s Wheeler stage will take the more than 400 mountain bikers to the heights of the Tenmile Range, steeply ascending and descending Wheeler Pass between Peaks 8 and 9 before riding the Copper Mountain Resort side of the range to the turnaround point on the Peaks Trail in the backcountry outside Frisco.
