Race director Keith Hughes is clearly very excited for the 2012 race season to get started "In thirty years of racing around the world and a decade of directing races I've never been as excited for an event as I am for the Epic 250 in Bend.” Stated Hughes at the Bend, OR press conference. “I am determined to find a way to both race and direct Bend in 2012, this is simply the World's best triathlon course!"
