Leadville Trail 100

This what I heard over the phone about twenty minutes ago: Lance Armstrong is 12 minutes ahead of Weins @ 60 miles. Records may fall, records may not. We may have race reports, we may not.

I can’t wait to hear about this one. Packed with talent. Shit is on.

Update 1: Best online source for Leadville is this twitter.com/singletrack_com.

Update 2: This is the top ten as I currently understand it to be. Times may be wrong. But it looks like we have a new course record.

1st Lance Armstrong 6:28:50.9
2nd David Weins 6:57:02.0
3rd Matt Schriver 7:09:48.5
4th Alex Grant 7:10:54.1
5th Len Zanni 7:11:21.0
6th Max Tamm 7:16:56
7th Travis Brown 7:22:05.5
8th Manual Prado 7:35:27.2
9th Mike Hogan 7:353:35.0,
10th Jason Tullous 7:35 47.1

About big jonny

The man, the legend. The guy who started it all back in the Year of Our Lord Beer, 2000, with a couple of pages worth of idiotic ranting hardcoded on some random porn site that would host anything you uploaded, a book called HTML for Dummies (which was completely appropriate), a bad attitude (which hasn’t much changed), and a Dell desktop running Win95 with 64 mgs of ram and a six gig hard drive. Those were the days. Then he went to law school. Go figure. Flagstaff, Arizona, USA

  1. Lance killed it. Broke last year’s record by 15 mins, beat Weins by about 30, and rode in on a rear flat.

    Weins is still my hero though.

  2. Lance crossed the line and went straight to his RV, Weins could barely stand up and had full body trebles but sat straight down on a cooler for an interview.
    Class.

  3. …both guys are amazing athletes, not one iota of doubt about that…as are all who finished or even put in a good effort…poor tink, one of THE endurance athletes of our times & he gets waylaid by a broken seat-clamp ???…that’s a heartbreaker…

    …& big david wiens will forever remain one of the classiest guy to ever throw a leg over a top tube…& i mean ever…

  4. The whole top ten is class. I got this info from Gary Fisher’s twitter:

    Good looking out Big Tex Tullous! He who holds the Texas Package!

  5. Anybody takes more than seven hours to finish 100 miles is a pussy. Or is this one of those hilly ones?

  6. Flat as a pancake. And all fire roads! It’s so pussy. There are kids in Flagstaff that proudly say “Real men ride singletrack!” They are so hard, those kids in Flagstaff. Hard as nails, I tell ya.

  7. Watched the race today. It’s a dumb course from a mountain biker’s standpoint. Still kinda wished I was riding; spectating is kinda boring. Shout out to Jason Nepp, squeeked in with a minute to go.

  8. so if someone brought 5 thugs with flat bars to kill it on the fireroads to beat the shit out of a guy who is a class fucking act… and then disappears into his RV? .. although i cheered at the french race.. gotta call it out now…. cocksucker….

  9. “”I don’t normally change flats. I call the car and they fix it. That’s the way it works in road cycling,” Armstrong said. “And when I’m out on a ride and have to change one, I’m just terrible at changing flats.”

    Lance cant fix a flat?

    Really Lance?…….Really?

    Sheesh.

  10. “Lance cant fix a flat?
    Really Lance?…….Really?”

    Dude— if you were riding a sub-6:30 pace at Leadville, you too would be pissy about changing a flat.

  11. …agree w/ ya mikey…

    …man didn’t say he couldn’t change a flat, man said “I’m just terrible at changing flats.”

    …i recall david finished finished last years race on a virtual flat…something about being close to the finish & having a guy like either one a’ these two behind ya & ya just wanna ride it out…anxiety factor after a 100 miles of nasty…

  12. “Dude— if you were riding a sub-6:30 pace at Leadville, you too would be pissy about changing a flat.”

    Dude, if I just rode that I would still be lying in a ditch somewhere unconscious………but my tire would be inflated.

  13. Yea, my tires would be inflated and my bike too. Hell, my bike would still be on the rack and I’d be at that bar on the corner.

    F that race. Straight to hell.
