Eagle’s Mike Skellion won Sunday’s hill climb portion of the Roan Cliff Chaos bicycle race at Bureau of Land Management land near Rifle.

Skellion beat out second-place finisher Ken Holsinger and third-place Ben Norris for the title, which followed a second-place finish in Saturday’s cross country portion of the Chaos. The cross country took place at JQS Trails on the Roan Plateau.

The high finishes earned Skellion the distinction of being the expert rider division’s King of the Chaos, which went to the weekend’s overall champion.

Julie Morrow was the women’s uphill winner, beating out second-place Helen Carlsen.

Through Monday’s third stage of the Tour de Suisse, Glenwood Springs High School graduate Bobby Julich sat in 83rd place in the vaunted Swiss race. He finished 75th in Monday’s stage, which was won by Australia’s Rob McEwen.

The Tour de Suisse is a nine-stage race throughout Switzerland that will cover almost 1,500 kilometers before concluding on June 22.
