Hoke, Stetson-Lee brew up a pair of fat-tire victories

This ‘was hands down the best mountain bike race’
Fans crowded in the alley behind Steamworks Brewing Co. to watch riders such as Durango’s Tad Elliott exit the bar and ride over a series of obstacles in Sunday’s Iron Horse Bicycle Classic mountain bike race.
The section of the mountain bike course that went through an open Steamworks window and through the crowded bar was a favorite for riders such as Durango’s Greg Carpenter in Sunday’s mountain bike race. “It was awesome going through that bar,” said Boulder’s Mitch Hoke, who won the men’s professional field.
Kelsy Bingham of Ogden, Utah, and the rest of her mountain biking competition rode up and over obstacles behind Steamworks during the mountain bike race. Mitch Hoke and Teal Stetson-Lee came out on top.
Riders jostled for position at the start of the men’s Category 1 mountain bike race Sunday. The three-lap course started in downtown Durango, climbed to the edge of the Fort Lewis College campus, skirted its edge and descended back into town for the finish.
Competitors in the men’s Category 1 mountain bike race had plenty of time to work their way through the field. Each of the laps took more than 30 minutes for the fastest riders.
