Competition draws riders from across U.S.
On Saturday, hundreds of riders from across the nation came to Keystone Bike Park in Summit County for the annual Big Mountain Enduro series. The Keystone stop comes on the heels of the June 9 Eagle stop in the six-event series, filled with massive boulders, screaming straightaways and more than 70,000 vertical feet throughout the course of the endurance series. The next step in the takes place in Winter Park on July 8.
Paul Cuthbertson set out by himself around 3 p.m. Friday from the trailhead that leads up to the Polar Star Inn, according to his father, Mike, but never made it to the popular backcountry hut as a late-spring snowstorm moved in.
