Welcome to Episode #60 of the Mile High Endurance podcast. Mile High Endurance is your weekly connection to coaches, experts and pro athletes to help you reach your endurance and triathlon goals. We're your hosts Rich Soares and Bill Plock and we thank you for giving us the next hour or so. We have Daragh Kneeshaw from Aspen Snowmass on the show today to talk to us about the Audi Power of Four Ski Mountaineering Race later this month and the Trail Race coming up this summer.
Thanks again to Mark Mastalir for joining us to talk about the Halo Neuro Sport.
I really need a few minutes to reflect on this.
If you listened to Khem's and my interview with TrainingPeaks co-founder Dirk Friel a few weeks ago about new features in TP.
At the tail end of that interview, we talked about Dirks races in 2017. Now Dirk, as you probably know was a former professional cyclist. So what does a former pro cyclist do for races and athletic activities in the winter you ask? Well we'll tell you. He does that Audi Power of Four Mountaineering race.
The Audi Power of Four Race Series is a premier endurance race series utilizing the unique and amazing terrain of each of the four Aspen Snowmass mountains. Each race is designed to test the limits and skills of both elite and recreational athletes.
The Power of Four Ski Mountaineering Sport Division has a 6:00 AM race start in Snowmass Base Village. The Power of Two Rec Division begins at 8:00 AM at the base of Aspen Highlands.
Bill, you first looked this up and shared it with me. What made this race appealing to you? What are the four mountains? https://www.aspensnowmass.com/our-mountains/snowmass
Aspen Snowmass has two additional races in this series. There's a Trail Run with 10K, 25K and 50K distances. There's also 33 mile mountain bike race across all four mountains.
We've got Daragh Kneeshaw with us to talk about Aspen Snowmass, the 4 mountains, the race series and much more.
