2011 BMA Sufferfest / Caribou Classic

Boulder Mountain Bike Allliance annual Sufferfest event upped the ante this year as it celebrated many achievements in 2011. The amazing send off point of Caribou Ranch was an amazing home base for an event that is likely to grow as word gets out. A large thank you to the Guercio family for sharing their little piece of heaven with our hands-on group of trail advocates. The two day event kicked off with a 37 or 50 mile ride followed by Oskar Blues food & brew and campout.
The group of over 125 rolled off from the line....the group included jeremy horgan kobelski and wife Heather Irmiger straight off their top races in the World Championships, congrats as they both rode to top 12 finishes.
The riding gets techical for the group with Chris leading on the 505 climb.
