2011 XTERRA….Mountain Triathlon in Beaver Creek, Colorado

I had the opportunity to shoot the 2011 XTERRA Mountain Championships for Vail Resorts in Avon & Beaver Creek, Colorado. The race featured a kids race, as well as, a sport and pro class race. The course began with a swim in Nottingham Lake followed by a mountain bike leg up to Beaver Creek and finished with a trail run on the trails of the Beaver Creek ski area. The weather was perfect and the course proved to be a challenge for all. The Beaver Creek stop is part of the XTERRA American Tour which hosts races all over the US. Many of the Pro athletes that competed here will travel to Ogden, Utah on September 24th for the XTERRA USA Championships, part of the XTERRA World Tour.

I am testing a new feature on the blog that gives the opportunity to create a gallery of images, as opposed to posting them individually. The jury is still out as to whether I like this feature.
