Race the Leadville 100 MTB with WBR


Leadville’s Sixth Street is the Champs-elysees of mountain biking. It’s the closest thing we mountain bikes have to the magnitude of celbratory mayhem that Tour de France racers bask in as they roll through the streets of Paris on the final day of the grand tour. -Rebecca Rusch, Rusch to Glory

We are looking for special individuals seeking out an epic race with an awesome group–and to do it for World Bicycle Relief. Join Team WBR at the most famous mountain bike race in the world–the Leadville Trail 100 MTB. You’ll race this extreme terrain as a member of our team alongside other athletes representing the Power of Bicycles. Between now and February 20th, apply for a slot through the application below. We will be selecting four individuals with both the desire to race and give back. Athletes will be selected based on a compelling application and the commitment to raise $5,000 for World Bicycle Relief. Not only will you have a chance to race in the rare air of the Colorado mountains but take part in pre-race events with Elden ‘Fatty’ Nelson and four-time Leadville champion Rebecca Rusch. Be a part of something bigger on race day and ride for the Power of Bicycles. Check out all the details below. 

“It’s no secret that I love the Leadville 100; I’ve raced it every single year for the past eighteen years. This race tests and inspires me like nothing else. It’s also no secret that I’m a huge fan of World Bicycle Relief and the difference it makes in people’s lives. Having a Leadville-WBR-Fatty team is‰Û_well‰Û_it’s a perfect storm of awesomeness. -Elden Fatty Nelson, FatCyclist.com
