Grant and Dixon win Breck Epic stage 3

The paparazzi lined the streets, snapping photos of the rainbow of helmets and jerseys set against the dramatic Ten Mile range. Cow bells rang out while the man an the helm of the Breck Epic, Mike McCormack, scaled the start line scaffolding to conduct the morning meeting. On tap for today was the queen stage, with big climbs and descents to match. Arguably the best section of the Colorado trail was before the racers, with smooth, flowing trail that transitions suddenly to rock-strewn singletrack which tests even the most skilled riders.
