Johnny, Todd, Breck & Randy flew to Leadville to pre-ride the Leadville 100 race course. They split it up into two days, because riding your mountain bike 100 miles in one day is just silly. But racing 100 miles in a day is fine!
The Leadville Airport is the highest airport in the continental US at almost 10,000 feet. You get a certificate just for landing there! And if that wasn't cool enough, the airport has a few loaner cars, one of which is an Ambulance. The boys had a great time rallying around town in it and only turned on the sirens when absolutely necessary. The ride details are here and here.
Great views of the Rocky Mountains en route to Leadville
