Leadville 100 Mile Mountain Bike Race with Lance Armstrong
These photos were taken near Fish Hatchery & along the Powerline Trail which crests at Sugarloaf Pass at 11,130 feet above sea level.
I ran up to Sugarloaf Pass and waited for about 50 minutes to capture photos of the leaders. Lance Armstrong shot around a bend and was going so fast that I was able to get just one picture. 20 minutes later perennial champ, Dave Wiens zipped by.
Lance went on to win in a new course record of 6:28:20... Dave Wiens came in second in 6:57:02... third went to Matt Shriver in 7:09:48.
Near the top of the Powerline Trail - Sugarloaf Pass above 11,100 feet... with a nice view of Turquoise Lake. I waited here for over 50 minutes before the leaders ripped by. This part of the trail is shared by the Leadvile 100 Mountain Bike Race -and- a week later the Leadville Trail 100 Mile Endurance Run.
