After riding 454 miles in four and a half days with just seven hours of sleep, Pivot Ultra Endurance Athlete Kurt Refsnider has won the Colorado Trail race! This win makes him the first person to win the Triple Crown of Bikepacking events (Tour Divide, Arizona Trail 750, and the CTR). “I had had 4 failed race attempts on this trail previously, so this was a really rewarding win for me,” says Kurt. “The Mach 4 SL was so much fun out there – amazingly fast on the climbs, and it still could pound down the chunkiest descents (of which there are a LOT).”
