Is anyone doing the 2010 Leadville 100 Mountain Bike Race? I just got in the race through the lotto this year and this is my first time. I am looking for some training recommendations/plans etc.
I've finished the Leadville 100 5 times. Last year I got sick the night before and dropped out after 20 miles. I'm back in this year.
There's a Leadville 100 group on Yahoo It's listed as a running group but it's for the mountain bike race. If you go back through the old posts you'll find lots of information or you can ask something new.
For training plans, I've heard very good things about Lynda Wallenfels personal training or some of her pre-made training plans. People will start with on of the base training plans and finish up with one of her 100 miler plans.
I've been working on a Leadville 100 FAQ but still have lots to finish up on it.
Our own Active Expert and Leadville 100 vet Gale Bernhardt did a blog post on preparing for Leadville:
Scroll to the bottom for links to her past articles and blogs on the race. And keep an eye on her blog. Gale will often post training updates throughout the year. Good luck!
