I've been hearing similar grumblings from several of my friends. I think the ultraendurance mtb scene is going to follow a course similar to that which brought about gravel road racing in the midwest. We want to race, compete, and push each other to be better, but we can't always afford it. When events get too expensive, too popular, or both, it creates a new market. Somebody is going to capitalize on that. I see a grassroots, ultraendurance mtb series that welcomes all riders for little or no money. And it will be good.


there are 100 Milers all over the country...

many of which are also selling out

yes... it sucks when a secret becomes common knowledge

but... this could give you and/or your buddy a chance to try a different event

personally I am partial to the Shenandoah Mountain 100


it is far more of a mountain bike event than Leadville... but there still needs to be some serious road strength
the road sections kill me everytime

The Trek ran like a top, like butter on a hot skillet, smooth like a baby's bottom, like a shot of Johnnie Walker Blue, . . well you know what I'm trying to say, like a brand spanking new 5.9 Madone!
