Follow our wagon train up north to Flagstaff for the fifth annual Landis Cyclery Barn Burner 104! Come and get out of the heat, ride through the beautiful Coconino and Kaibab National Forest and camp on private land. Bring the whole family, we have something for everyone!
Endurance mountain bike racing at its Western best. This is a 104-mile endurance mountain bike event. The course is a 26-mile loop on Forest Service roads. The course is not technically challenging, and is considered a "roadie" mountain bike course . . . meaning it is beginner friendly(ish) and fast for those with more experience. There are a few sketchy spots to keep you honest and climbs to make your lungs hurt a bit. All in all you are riding at altitude, in cooler weather, with cool people and camping out — what more can you ask for?

Those who do not
have a current qualifier time or
year prior LT100
As one of the most well known mountain bike races on earth, getting into the Leadville Trail 100 has always been difficult. LT100 Qualifiers are long and tough, with lots of climbing. They are similar to the classic course at Leadville in that they consist mainly of rugged jeep roads of gravel and dirt. A qualifier event could not only gain you entry into the LT100 MTB, but it could also boost your corral starting position in the Race Across the Sky!
We're looking forward to another fun event in 2014. Join us Friday evening for live, acoustic music during packet pickup. The quarter-mile looped pump track will also be open so your kids can practice for Saturday. Saturday morning, while parents are out riding, kids can participate in planned events including pump track races by age, frisbee and bean bag toss games and other activities. The awards ceremony will take place Saturday afternoon and campers will be treated to a campfire and s'mores**, beverages provided by Four Peaks Brewing Company — first 2 are free, $2 per thereafter and 100% of proceeds benefit local trails — and a family-friendly movie beginning at dusk.
5:30 a.m. – 6:30 a.m. Last minute registration and packet pickup at race site
7 a.m. Start time. Riders will start Lemans style, running to your trusty steed and heading out on a wild west adventure! All riders will check in at the barn at the completion of each loop to change riders or simply check in before continuing onward.
4 p.m. All riders must clear the course
6 p.m. Awards ceremony
*Schedule based on 2013 event, subject to change.
