Want to train for the Leadville 100 Mountain Bike Race with an experienced race finisher?
We'll teach you the ins and outs of the course, where to rest, where to dig deep, where the aid stations will be, and how to finish this demanding race. These training rides are for the first time Leadville rider or for experienced Leadville riders who want to finish with a faster time and win a bigger belt buckle. Pro Rider, Richard La China, will share some of his lessons learned on this course and give you a toolbox of virtual skills and tips that help prepare you for the event.
We will stick to a rigid schedule with specific details to help riders prepare for the annual August race. We will start these rides early, both to simulate the actual race start and to complete our ride before the afternoon thunderstorms descend upon the high country.
Riders will need to be prepared for the high country by carrying proper clothing, food, tools and any other items to successfully complete a several hour strenuous, high altitude ride. You will be given a mandatory and recommended list of items when you book this training ride. All riders will be required to have a Colorado Search and Rescue (COSAR) card before the ride and we provide them as part of your fee.
