I’ve heard a similar complaint from a few people this past week – Armstrong packed the race with worker bees while others went the lottery route and didn’t get in.
This is from the Velonews Mailbag:
Wow. I just read that the organizers of the Leadville 100 allowed three late entries so Lance can break Dave Wiens’ record. I entered the lottery and lost out this year. Dave Wiens entered the lottery and lost out his first year. What happened to the rules? Very dissappointed in Ken Chouber.
I think I will save my money for promoters who are FAIR.

I know a lot of people that have missed out on the Leadville Lottery. And I can understand why people would be upset after something like this.by
