The Leadville 100
What is the Leadville 100?
A double-barrel shotgun shatters the cold morning in Leadville, Colorado.

Leadville is largely contested on old mining roads made up of dirt and rock, and the high point of the race is known as Columbine — an old mine at 12,000 feet above sea level. Joe Dombrowski raced here in 2017, coming in second place, and we’re thrilled to tackle the challenges on offer in Leadville yet again.
