2011 FIRECRACKER 50 AND THEN SOME......
What a weekend, road racing, calling the Firecracker 50, mountain biking in Eagle, and still here enjoying the high country for another day. Colin Cares, Jay Henry, and Kelly McGelky threw down at the 50, and Pua Mata finally broke through and absolutely decimated the women's field in Breckenridge on July 4th in one of the country's premier events.
