There are a few pro cyclists revered as iconic Leadville 100 MTB Racers. For our money, Todd Wells belongs alongside Rebecca Rusch and Dave Wiens on the Leadvillian racer equivalent of Mount Rushmore. (Who else belongs? We ask him.) Self-effacing in victory and gracious in defeat, Todd has great stories to tell both from the front AND the middle of…
 
In just a few weeks, Jeff Leenhouts is going for his 25th finish at the Leadville Trail 100. And despite a rather...unique...approach to training and fueling, Jeff has an amazingly consistent record at the Race Across the Sky. If you're looking for great stories from a guy who loves this race and the people who race it, look no further. You're goin…
 
If you're looking for inspiration, this is the episode for you. Roxanne Hall — a Leadville local, businesswoman, athlete, and artist — has finished the Leadville 100 more times than any other woman...in spite of chronic pain from a terrible crash years ago. In this episode, Roxanne shares amazing stories, motivation, and practical advice based on h…
 
Leadville is a legendary place to most of us, so what does it mean to be one of the local legends there? Marvin Sandoval would know. He's consistently a sub-nine-hour finisher of the LT100, has raced the Leadman nine times and has won the series twice. Along the way he's collected a lot of great stories and valuable information for anyone who races…
 
In endurance racing, little improvements can add up to big differences. That's why we have Adam Kerin of Zero Friction Cycling as our guest. He runs an entire testing center dedicated to chains and lubrication. We asked Adam to focus on the conditions we see in the Leadville Trail 100 and how we can save valuable time with some smart drivetrain cho…
 
Earl Walker knows how to get around on two wheels. He's been a pro downhill mountain biker. He's completed the Leadville ten times. And if you've raced the Leadville 100 in the past nine or so years, you've no doubt noticed him at some point in the race. That's because Earl is riding the moto, out in front of the lead racers. From there, he has the…
 
Heath Speckman is a Leadville State Trooper, an Air Force Veteran, and a one-time MMA fighter. And those are the things we hardly even touch on in this episode. Because Heath is also the guy who Everested by riding up and down Columbine over and over. And Heath is the guy who rode the Leadville course every week for 8 weeks last summer. And in shor…
 
You may know Peter Stetina from his World Tour days. Or you may know him from his fourth-place finish in the 2019 Leadville 100. But we connected with him because we heard he had a great story to tell about his very recent attempt to set a new record on the 142-mile Kokopelli Trail (Moab-Loma). It's a great story on its own merits, but a ride of th…
 
We’re joined by the host of the popular Youtube channel Hardtail Party for this episode. Steve has a deeper understanding of the pros and cons of hardtails as your everyday ride than just about anyone, and has some extraordinary recommendations on how to select your next bike (but you may be surprised what he recommends for a Leadville racer). Enjo…
 
John Croom has NOT raced the Leadville 100. Yet. But that’s about all he has not done. He’s on Team USA for track cycling, was an Olympic hopeful, and holds the national record in track cycling’s team pursuit competition. And now — like the rest of us — he's getting ready to race the Leadville 100. Unlike most of us, however, he does not own a moun…
 
This episode is an answer to a question many racers have asked a number of times: is the Leadville 100 actually a great GRAVEL bike course? Well, we found a guy who — along with a few friends — has taken this question way beyond the “thought experiment” stage. Stephen Fitzgerald of Boulder Colorado — owner of Rodeo Adventure Labs, a small bike comp…

And maybe you'll want to go in even sooner, because it's simply a great bike shop with a terrific vibe...and they take care of you like you're a local. In this episode, Hottie and Fatty talk with Brian Feddema, founder, owner, and head me…
 
Michael Iddings is one of very few people to have completed the Leadville 100 more than twenty times. But as his power and max HR plummeted, his frustration grew: his doctors weren't taking his concerns seriously. And, as it turns out, those concerns needed to be taken VERY seriously. Season 4 of the Leadville Podcast is all about stories, and we'r…
 
Season 4 of the Leadville Podcast will center around the amazing stories this race brings, and that dovetails nicely with the intriguing "From the Ground Up" contest pro cyclists Ryan Petry and Alexey Vermeulen have dreamed up: Choose three people new to mountain biking and give them (almost) everything they need to race the Leadville 100. We talk …
 
Our first guest this season was Michelle Duffy, Associate Marketing Director at Life Time, talking about the LT100 2020 registration challenges. Little did she (or we!) know that by the time we talked again, that would be the smallest challenge the team (and she personally) would have dealt with. We're happy to have the 2020 season behind us, to be…
 
Kimo Seymour — President of events and media at Life Time, not only has his thousand-mile buckle, he’s finished the Leadville 100 UNDER eight hours every time he’s raced. In other words, we could learn a thing or two about this race from this guy. But we didn't bring Kimo on to talk about the course or race day tactics (at least not this time). It’…
 
There are exactly TWO people who have done the Leadville 100 every single time it’s been held. John Callahan is of course one of those two, and TODD MURRAY is the other...and we’ve got a full hour with him. There’s literally nobody with more experience with this race, and it was an amazing honor to swap stories with him for an hour.…

But Brian also brings something exceptional to the coaching table: remarkably infectious enthusiasm. Brian has boatloads of energy, and boy do we need that now. So get ready for some training focus reload and some great stories too.…
 
Last Tuesday, Fatty and Lisa went to Leadville, checked into their AirBnB, went to bed, and then got up and rode the Leadville 100 course — with a stowed ice chest as their sole support. It was a hard day. A slow day. A day of re-learning some very important things about the Leadville 100.
 
Have you ever seen a racer on a Singlespeed at the Leadville 100 and wondered, "Why would someone do THAT?" Well, this is the episode that tries to answer that question. Fatty has raced on a singlespeed for six of his 22 finishes — even winning the category once. Fatty's built (and will talk at length about) the singlespeed of his dreams for the 20…
 
Let's just say right up front that this interview is one of the single most fun conversations we've ever had in the Leadville show. Whether it's podcasting, endurance racing, or absolutely crushing the CX field on a singlespeed, Sarah brings amazing energy and join to what she does. And the fact that she is an incredibly accomplished racer and a Le…
 
In our first bonus episode of the season, Fatty and Hottie talk with Rebecca Rusch — The Queen of Pain — about the RPI Challenge, a reimagining of the Rebecca's Private Idaho race. Learn what it is, how it's different from any other virtual event (that we know of), and why Hottie and Fatty are excited to be signed up and ready to train and race wit…
