Leadville — The 100 Mile Mountain Bike Race Podcast, p/b Floyd's of Leadville is the show for people racing (or just interested in) The Leadville Trail 100 Mountain Bike Race. Fatty (a 22-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.
S4E28: Start Getting Ready for 2022
As far as we're concerned, the off-season is just a term for that short time when you get yourself ready for the next on-season. In this episode, Fatty and Hottie talk about the ways you can start preparing for the 2022 Leadville 100 and beyond.
S4E27: Leadville, Love, and a Bicycle Built for Two
Every racer has a story, so it stands to reason that every TANDEM team has twice the tale to tell. Brent Davis and Michelle Schwartz have a great story to tell about their podium-worthy day on the course, and a heartwarming story about how they wound up on the same bicycle in the first place. We won't guarantee you'll want to try Leadville on a Tandem after listening to this episode, but we DO guarantee you'll have a soft spot for the folks who do.

S4E26: New Perspectives on the Leadville 100, with Life Time's Kimo Seymour
2020 wasn't an easy year for Life Time President of Events and Media, Kimo Seymour. In addition to the normal challenges that come with the Leadville 100, there was the massive registration deferral issue. On top of that was the pandemic. And on top of THAT was a very serious illness that Kimo is still recovering from. It's enough to make you think about what's important. We talk about all that, plus new events and the future of the Leadville 100, in this can't-miss episode.

S4E24: Meet the New LT100 Race Director, Tamira Jenlink (Part 1)
Tamira Jenlink took on a big job — race director for the Leadville 100 — at a critical moment for the race. She hasn't yet caught her breath after the Leadville races, but she still made time to answer every question Hottie and Fatty threw at her. In fact, this is a substantial enough conversation that we have split it into two parts. If you love the Leadville 100 and want to know where it's headed next, you will not want to miss this conversation.
S4E23: Tips & Stories from 2019 & 2021 Champ Rose Grant
Rose Grant brought both extraordinary strength and strategy to the 2021 Leadville 100, besting her already mind-boggling winning time from 2019. We're lucky to have her tell her story and share her practical advice any racer can use.
Amazing podcast. Great tech content, guests, and banter. Thank you!
Love the pod
I look forward every week to listening to Fatty and Hotty talk about the Leadville 100. I am not a mountain bike racer/rider but still find the podcast very interesting. I was in Leadville the week before the race and hoped to run into one of them but that didn’t happen. I feel like I have ridden the race and I think I have all of the sections memorized by this point. Great job guys.
I absolutely love listening to these guys. I’m doing my first Leadville this year. These podcast have been awesome to get me excited, pumped and ready to race out at Leadville.
