Hey Leadville Family,

ONE WEEK until we meet at 10,152 feet. ONE WEEK until we channel that Grit, Guts and Determination. ONE WEEK until we Race Across the Sky at the 2022 Stages Cycling Leadville Trail 100 MTB.

Before you start the climb to Cloud City, our Life Time team has a list of 5 race-week happenings to help you plan your Leadville adventure:

  1. Race Across the Sky Expo 

Join your fellow racers and slew of outdoor vendors for the expanded Race Across the Sky Expo at 135 E 6th St! Grab your race number, snag your swag bag, and enjoy a little food, drink and live music before you hop in the saddle!
