    Any bets that Lance is on a 29er this year at Leadville

    Now that there is a racing 29er with a Trek Logo i'm thinking he'll hop on the Trek Superfly.?

    Is it confirmed that Lance is racing at Leadville this year?
    If the Superfly dons the Trek label and he's there then have to believe he will be on one. Leadville in particular is perfect for a 29er...a roadbike race on the dirt.
    No doubt he is still licking his wounds after the TdF however...emotionally at least since his least favorite racer won the race again. Hard to give up that glory it seems.

    HA! That is pretty funny.

    RIDING in particular is perfect for a 29er.

    Didn't he test both 26" and 29" bikes and decide on the 26" last year? I'm pretty sure he would've been able to ride the bike he was most comfortable and faster on.

    Lance is in D-Town with the Governer for a press conf. So That tells me he has already been riding at altitude for the race.

    He is racing

    The Leadville site has him signed up for the race.

    I think he will be on a 29er from Bikesdirect!

    Lance is clearly the favorite if he attends. His level of training and conditioning mixed with competitions like the Tour De France most likely exceed any level of training that most mtb pros do. Perhaps if the course was shorter, other mtb pros might have a greater chance of keeping up.

    "This month is one month you wanted to lay low," Armstrong said. "It ends up I'm pretty slammed with some commitments."

    He told the AP he's also leaning toward riding again in the lung-searing Leadville 100 mountain bike race on Aug. 14, the nation's highest-altitude endurance test that he won in record time last year.

    "I just had my first ride on dirt in about a year," Armstrong said Tuesday. "So, it's just trying to get my mountain bike skills back. The other key is altitude. Almost the whole race is above 10,000 feet. I have to make sure I spend enough time in the mountains before I go out.

    "I suspect I'll be there."

    2 questions.


    1. Are You Racing in the Leadville?

    2. Could you hand Lance his ass on a platter on the race course (could you beat him?)



    If you answered 1 & 2 with no then STFU!!!!!!!!!!!

    If you answered 1 yes then good luck and I wish you the best of luck.

    If you answered 2 with Yes then I am going to call BS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Nope no plans to race the road race high up in Colorado. Brec100 one day. Not a Lance fan. He did alot to bring people out for Leadville. But compared to the W101 or the SM100 its nontechincal. Yes elevation is a factor, still a roadie style 100.

    Harlan price knocked off Floyd Landis at the SM100 a few years ago.

    So take a second step back and calm down. Just stating my opinion dude.

    If Contador or Schleck shows up then Lance is in big trouble. Not to mention the whole grassroots aura of the race.

    As for what bike he'll ride...

    ...it all depends on what Trek's making an effort to sell through his participation. It really is that simple.
