After doing the underground, 550-mile, self-supported bikepacking Colorado Trail Race in 2011, I was stoked to get an email from Stefan G., the "organizer" of the CTR, saying that he was thinking about running the race backwards in 2013 (Durango to Denver), and wondering if I'd like to host the start at VC. Of course I said yes! I was already planning on tackling the beast again. This time, I brought a camera (serious oversight in 2011!). Here are the results.
