Leadville — The 100 Mile Mountain Bike Race Podcast, p/b Shimano is the show for people racing (or just interested in) The Leadville Trail 100 Mountain Bike Race. Fatty (a 23-time LT100 finisher), Hottie, and a host of experts answer your questions, give you training tips, detail the course, and tells the stories about the highest and hardest one-day mountain bike race in America: The Leadville Trail 100 Mountain Bike Race.
S5E26: Fatty's 2022 Race Recap
This is it -- the final episode of Season 5: Fatty's recap of the 2022 race. He goes into what went right, what went wrong, what he learned (yes, you can still learn things the 24th time you do this race) and whether he'll ever race the LT100 on a singlespeed again.
Thanks for listening to our show, and we'll see you next year...on the starting line!
S5E25: What Happened While You Were Racing
While you were racing (or crewing, or spectating) the Leadville 100, there were literally thousands of other people on the course, each having a remarkable experience. Hottie was out there, with a mic, capturing those stories. Whether you were in Leaadville or just wish you were, you do NOT want to miss this episode!
S5E24: Final Prep for the Big Day (Live from the Leadville 100 Expo)
Fatty and Hottie join a wide array of experts to talk you through your final prep for the big race. Merilee and Ken welcome you to the family, two-time-defending champion Rose Grant describes her race strategy and why it doesn't change depending on others, Tamira Jenlink and Ryan Cross underscore the most important things you should think about for the race (including the weather), and two of the smartest and most-experienced cycling minds we know of -- Josh Poertner of Silca and pro racer Jeremiah Bishop -- give you tips for the best, most successful race you can have this weekend. This is a can't-miss, information- and inspiration-packed episode!
S5E23: Crewing Fast, Crewing Smart
Fatty's a lucky guy: not only is Hottie an amazing podcast co-host, he's also an experienced Leadville racer and crew chief. When you add to that the fact that both he and Mrs Hottie are detail oriented and fast on their feet, well...you've got a LT100 crew that dreams are made of. In this episode, Hottie and Mrs Hottie share their secrets for crewing success. You -- and your crew -- will not want to miss it!
S5E22: Fueling in the days before the race
You're getting down to the final days before the big race. In this episode, we bring Denis Faye back to the program to talk about some fueling strategies to use in the days before the LT100. We also spend plenty of time detailing the miles from Hagerman Rd to the Turquoise Lake Climb up to the Carter aid station, then down Kevens and to the pavement. It's a lot to know, and the more you know the better you'll be prepared.
S5E21: Cole Chlouber and Lessons from Leadville
Cole Chlouber has arguably been a part of the Leadville 100 in more ways than anyone else. Son of race founder Ken Chlouber, Cole literally grew up with the race and has marked it, measured it, ridden behind it, cleaned up after it, ridden it, worked with the staff on it, and now is following his father's steps as the face of it. Enjoy this story-filled episode from someone who loves this race as much as we do.
I have been listening to Fatty since you “tried out“ for a professional cycling team. Through blogs and podcasts I’ve come to appreciate him and this race he loves so much. Throw in hHottie and now you have a bangers podcast that really does a great job promoting this race. At some moments I’m inspired to try to partake but it ain’t gonna happen.
THE source for all things Leadville MTB
Fatty and Hottie combine knowledge, experience, humor, and great personal chemistry to help anyone learn what they need to make their Leadville Trail 100 MTB race the best that it can be. Technique, gear, fitness, nutrition, and the course, all covered with the perfect amount of detail in an incredibly engaging manner. When I see the "new episode available" mark appear on the LT 100 tile in my podcast app, I stop everything and give it a listen.
Amazing podcast. Great tech content, guests, and banter. Thank you!
