The Leadville Trail 100 2017

August 12at5:00 am - 9:00 pm

best Mountain Bike Racing Series in the US Leadville 100

The Leadville Race Series is one of our favorite mountain bike racing series in the US. The historic Leadville Trail 100 2017 edition is the race of all races. One hundred miles across the high-altitude, extreme terrain of the Colorado Rockies, this event was created for only the most determined athletes. Starting at 10,152 feet and climbing to 12,424 feet, you’ll be challenged to catch your breath — while the views try to take it away. The majority of course is on mountain two-track fire roads. Riders get the chance to win daily prizes and maybe even wear the leader’s jersey on days two and three.
