After 20 years of mountain biking in and around Austin, this past August I finally raced in the Leadville 100 MTB, an epic 100-mile mountain bike race at 10,000 feet in Leadville, Colorado. Of course it wasn't without my fair share of mistakes, setbacks, successes and failures. So I wrote a book about it!
It's called "The First-Timer's Guide to the Leadville 100"
]It's about how two Texans aspired, planned, prepared, and finished the “Race Across The Sky.” It is not a training plan. Instead, this book is meant to inspire you to prepare to climb YOUR OWN Leadville, whether it’s actually Leadville or not. Much of what is shared will dissolve some of the unknowns about America’s premier mountain bike race. Questions that we had in our preparation and on race day are answered here. These stories will encourage you to follow your passion toward its peak. And once you get to that peak, keep climbing!
It's available starting today on amazon. I hope you like it!
