    Wow, that is awesome. I also heard there was another mt bike race out in Colorado somewhere in which both Lance and Landis were participating. Not sure if that happened yet.

    Landis road in the Leadville 100. Finished second behind Dave Wiens. Actually bettered the previous course record though Wiens bettered it just a little bit better. Armstrong did not show though he was in Colorado that week.

    so, looks as though he is in decent shape.

    Anyone have any pics from some of the single track in this race? Especially that rocky downhill that almost killed me between aid 3 and 4

    I had a blast at this race. It was an eye opening experience and one I will not soon forget. The event was first rate all the way!

    Here is a pic of the top of Dowell's Draft dropping into where that loose section is. (CP2-CP3)



    And a pick on the descent down to Braley's. (CP3-CP4)

    Nice looking trails - Leadville could sure use some trails like to jazz things up a bit.

    . . . and my sultan loved it up there. I must say that if I was on my old bike I might have walked 1 or 2 of the downhill sections. I see more trips to that area in my future
