In the men’s race, Trek-Segafredo’s Simmons, a Durango native, outsprinted Team California’s Caleb Classen to set the Iron Horse course record with a time of 2:11:29. Last year’s winner Riley Amos (Trek Factory Racing) took third place, about a minute behind.

“It’s always been something I look forward to in the schedule and for whatever reason it hasn’t worked so to be home and race with the whole family, it’s a really fun weekend” Simmons said after the finish. “To be able to race at home is special.”

In the women’s race, Kira Payer (DNA Pro Cycling) beat out 2019 Iron Horse champion Sarah Sturm (Specialized) by 16 seconds with a time of 2:43:34. Human Powered Health’s Katie Clouse placed third.

“We kept it pretty steady up the climbs and people just started popping,” Payer said. “Sarah put in a little dig and got rid of Katie, and it was just Sarah and I on the descent. I got a little gap at the end and just rode it in.”
