What comes down must first go up. This universal truth has a terrible price you're going to pay this August in this out-and-back race. As you climb Kevens, Sugarloaf, Columbine, the Powerline and more, it will be painfully obvious that you've got to carry every single pound up every single climb. So how do you take the sting out of this equation? Lighten up, obviously? The question is, is the obvious thing the right thing? We've go...

Many of us have been captivated by the first three seasons of the "From the Ground Up" video series, following new mountain bikers as they work to race The Leadville 100, with only a few months to prepare. Alexey Vermeulen and Ryan Petry are the creators of this project, and in the three seasons they've guided novice racers, they've learned a lot of lessons worth sharing. Also, be sure to listen in to Fatty's Finishing Tips, as he ...

It is new bike day on the show. We went to the Sea Otter Classic, roamed the expo, in hopes of finding a bike – or bikes – that are Leadville worthy. We found four. One that spares no expense, one high value full suspension, one hard tail with a recent Leadville win, and one that promises not to break the bank. For sure there are other brands and models that would make a great choice for Leadville but this was fun exercise and one ...

Every Leadville racer has the same question: "What will be my finish time?" And there was a time when that question was a real mystery. Now, however, if you are willing to fill in the variables, Best Bike Split can give you an astonishingly accurate prediction. In this episode, Best Bike Split ambassador Dave Schell joins us to explain how. And be sure to listen to Fatty's Finishing Tip in this episode: he's emphasizing a crucial p...

Ray Landry is quite simply the friendliest and most Leadville-knowledgeable guy you could ever ride with. He obsesses about this race every bit as much as Hottie and Fatty do, and has absolutely top-notch advice for Leadville racers. He's shared his wisdom at the Leadville Camp each year for several years, so we jumped at the opportunity to ask him what he hears as the most common questions and concerns. Enjoy the episode!

An interesting — and confusing — story came out in the Leadville Herald Democrat late last week. In this episode, we untangle the story and lay out our best guesses for what significant changes are actually in store for the 2024 LT100. Then for our main feature we bring back show favorite Dr Justin Ross to talk about what it really means to dig deep, and how understanding this very real phenomenon can help you have a successful day...

If you're 40+ years old and racing the the Leadville 100, you're in good company: a LARGE majority of folks lining up this August are Masters racers, and our podcast survey at the beginning of this season shows that 80% of our listeners fit in this group (it goes without saying that both of the hosts are). So we're very excited to have two true experts join us for this episode: Joe Friel -- the author of The Cyclist's Training Bibl...

Without question, the Leadville 100 is about the location. And it's about fitness. And it's about nutrition. And it's about the people. But really, when you think about it — before, during, and after the race — it's about the climbs. Face it, your reaction and conjured mental image when hearing the words "columbine" and "powerline" are already vastly different than 99.99% of the people in the world. So in this episode, we talk abou...

Your race day nutrition plan is a crucial part of your race training, and this episode Hottie's got a great interview with Bill Armstrong of NeverSecond about setting up a one-company nutrition ecosystem.

Next, Jonathan Lee of TranierRoad joins to help you get ininto the zone -- your training zone, of course -- and how to understand and incorporate zones into your training.

We're excited to have Coach Hunter Allen—who has worked with Jeremiah Bishop and dozens of the Leadvilles—join us to talk about a crucial (and often overlooked) component to your success in leadville: pedaling. Trust us, it’s more than just turning the cranks. In Fatty's Finishing Tips, Elden tells you to lighten up...but in a good, non-judgey way that will make a real difference in your race. And finally, we're outrageously excite...

Hottie and Fatty are joined by 2022 Leadville 100 champ Hannah Otto — one of the busiest professional bike racers in recent years. Between juggling UCI races, the Lifetime Grand Prix, and the occasional FKT, Hannah stays fast, smart, and positive: skills all Leadville racers should try to emulate.

In this episode, Hannah talks us through both her prior Leadville 100 races AND walks us through a new approach. While none of us could ...

By now you know whether you got into the 2024 Leadville 100. If you did (and even if you didn't), now is the time to do a baseline FTP test, so you can measure your progress through the season (and yes, Fatty reveals his own current FTP). Coach Jonathan Lee of TrainerRoad -- a favorite friend of the show -- joins to talk about the why, how, and what of FTP testing.

In this mini-episode, Hottie and Fatty encourage you to enter the lottery for the 2024 LT100...but also, to not expect to get in the race that way. We dig into what the surefire ways are to get in, what the tradeoffs are, and strategies to get in that cost less (but are also less certain) or that require more time and patience. Also, we have a request as we plan out Season 7 (!!!) of this show: fill out our listener survey at leadv...
