XTERRA Buffalo Creek, one of the best overall venues and trail systems on the entire XTERRA Circuit makes its long awaited return in 2013! Without Limits, with the help of Lake Wellington and former race director Robert Martinich, is proud to bring off road racing back to some of the best mountain bike and running trails in Colorado.
The swim will start off with a 1500m Swim in the clear waters of Lake Wellington, then it's off on a 22 mile mountain bike ride. If we had a scale with XTERRA Lory falling on the left side as beginner friendly, and XTERRA Curty Gowdy on the right side as more advanced, XTERRA Buffalo Creek would fall right in the middle. Double track, a few jeep roads, and some IMBA Epic rated Single Track comprise one of the longer routes on the circuit.
After the bike ride athletes will begin a 5 mile run on hilly terrain that circumnavigates the Lake before cruising through the finish chute by the transition area. After a 3 year break this is one XTERRA you won't want to miss in 2013!
"The Buffalo Creek course is one of the best courses on the circuit. It has a little bit everything: twisty singletrack, fast rollers, good climbs, total fun. So close to home, clean water, killer trails, what's not to like? Do not miss this one! Four weeks out, it's also a great XTERRA Nationals prep race so there will be plenty of competition on hand!" - Cody Waite EPC Coaching
