    What comes down must first go up. This universal truth has a terrible price you're going to pay this August in this out-and-back race. As you climb Kevens, Sugarloaf, Columbine, the Powerline and more, it will be painfully obvious that you've got to carry every single pound up every single climb. So how do you take the sting out of this equation? Lighten up, obviously? The question is, is the obvious thing the right thing? We've got experts in this episode to help you find the line and make smart scale-based decisions.

Enjoyable pod, even when you’ll never race it

I really enjoy listening to the advice on this pod, even though I’ll never race Leadville or similar. I might have when I was younger, but now I appreciate learning about it and watching it on-line

Love It

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.
