Huffing and Puffing, 54 Bicyclists Complete First Alpine 50 Race

Bicyclists in last Saturday’s first Lake City Alpine 50 mountain and gravel bike race were exhilarated by supreme mountain views but often exhausted after the strenuous, precipitous climb up the back side of Engineer Pass.
Local photographer Michael Underwood chronicled Grand Junction mountain bike racer Todd Ousley as he neared the pass summit, tranquil Denver Lake and the upper Animas Valley in background. For full story, pick up a copy of the August 30 Silver World.
