The Challenges

Leadville Trail 100 MTB

The Leadville Trail 100 MTB, affectionately know as the “Race Across the Sky”, is a single-day 104 mile mountain bike race in the Colorado Rockies. Starting at 10,176 feet (3,101 m) and climbing upwards of 12,424 feet (3,786 m) and tallying some 12,000+ feet (3,658+ m) of climbing along the way, it’s a lung- and leg searing test of endurance.

I finished in 8:35:50, thus earning the big gold and silver belt buckle.
