This is your one chance to see the movie of this classic off-road race which starts at over 10,000 feet and hammers on for 100 miles. Watch the best off-road racers in the world struggle to endure this challenge. The race that started 25 years ago as a running race to drive tourism in Leadville has now grown to a lottery cap of 1000+ competitors, many of them the world's most elite cyclists. But the Leadville Trail 100 "Race Across the Sky" Mountain Bike Race is not just a race of man against man: it's man vs. man, man vs. self, man vs. elements, man vs. time. A clock set for 12 grueling hour's slugs through 100 miles, over 14,000 vertical feet of climbing, some two miles above sea level, through extreme climate changes ranging from heat to hail, from rain to snow. To the racers, the risks of injury, fatigue and mechanical failure pale next to the chance that they will fall behind the 12 hour cut off mark and be eliminated.
