Next stop: The Leadville Trail 100

It has been awhile since the authors of Saatchi Sweats have made any posts but it doesn’t mean we haven’t been sweatin’. So many things to talk about including the California Ironman 70.3 at Oceanside, the XTerra West Championships at Lake Las Vegas, The Traverse, Project Rwanda 50 mile mountain bike ride, more business travel and triathlon training segments, and many others. Our own Mark Turner is currently in Canada racing the 7 day stage race known as the BC Bike Race on some of the world’s best single track. His report will be one to look forward to.

Detailed race reports of those events are soon to come but for now I’d like to announce that I, as well as another SSLA ad man, Daniel Brienza will be racing the epic and infamous 100+ mile mountain bike race known as the Leadville Trail 100. Leadville is the ultimate single day butt kicker with over 100 miles or mountain biking, 12,000+ feet of elevation gain, and the best (worst) part… almost all of this takes place at over 10,000 feet. That is some thin air.
