Pb – ville!
After my interview tomorrow I’m planning on driving a little further and making my first trip down to Leadville! Leadville is the highest city in the United States and because of it, has some pretty bad A races!
It’s home to the Leadville Trail 100 Mountain Bike Race, probably the most popolar of any in the race series. Because yes, Lance Armstrong has done it, and won it. But last year Levi Lephimer crushed Lance’s record from the previous year and this August won the inaugural US Pro Cycling Challenge; proving he truly owns the Colorado Mountains!
Leadville is also home to the Leadman Race Series, which involves: Trail Marathon, Leadville Silver Rush 50-Mile Mountain Bike Race or Silver Rush 50-Mile Trail Run Race, LT100 10K (I’ll be racing this in August), Leadville Trail 100 Mountain Bike Race, and Leadville Trail 100-Mile Run…yikes!
I guess that’s how the saying goes…”Leadville is home for miners, muckers, and mean mother-f*ckers.”
Plenty of photos and a blog writeup to come on Saturday after I get back!!
