Once again, Crested Butte’s rich and long history in mountain biking came to life this past Saturday and Sunday with the annual Pearl Pass to Aspen Klunker Tour.

Cool temperatures and spectacular views were enjoyed this past weekend as runners competed in the third annual Park to Peak to Pint trail running race hosted by Griggs Orthopedics.

Runners embarked from Crested Butte to Aspen this past Saturday, and mountain bikers rode from Aspen to Crested Butte the following day as part of the Grand Traverse, hosted by Crested Butte Nordic.

Sunshine and no wind.

That is what disc golfers will be hoping for this coming Sunday, Sept. 9 as the High Mountain Flyers Disc Golf Club host their 13th annual High Mountain Invitational tournament, which is not actually an invitational at all and is open to the public.

Last Wednesday, the Cowboys traveled to Black Canyon where they finished fourth overall — second in the 3A division. Pederson led the way, shooting a 77 on the day, followed closely behind by Dalton Huckins who had a 78. Trujillo rounded out scoring, shooting an 87.

He’s an 11-time champion at various levels of competition himself and coach to five national champions over the last two years.

That describes Tom Barber, head coach of the Western State Colorado University and Gunnison Boxing Club.
