Home of the "Sundance Film Festival" this ski resort course is one of the most difficult in the series. Hard enough just to finish, let alone place. With a back drop like something out of " Lord of the Rings" the race starts with at least 20 minutes of climbing at full effort to the top. This is some of the first singl...e track offered is the series and the first out of the deserts and up in the mountains. I led the climb 2/3 of the way up. Catching first at the bottom, starting the second lap. After that I battled inside the top 6 until pulling ahead to secure a hard fought 4th.
