2020 LeadBoat Challenge
Stages Cycling Leadville Trail 100 MTB
& SBT GRVL BLACK p/b Canyon
The LeadBoat is the ultimate challenge of 2020 – racing the Leadville Trail 100 MTB followed by SBT GRVL Black. These two arduous endurance races take place in the Rocky Mountains on the same weekend. Completing either of these races is an accomplishment in and of itself. To become a LeadBoat Legend, the cyclist must prepare for back-to-back events completing a 106-mile mountain bike race less than 24 hours before beginning a 144-mile gravel race. Each race requires a different bike and a different skill set.
The LeadBoat Challenge is application-based. During the selection process, applications for entry into the challenge will be reviewed with credentials including riders’ motivating factors, proudest accomplishments, past experiences in ultra-endurance events and parity. As both parties continue to advocate for more equal representation on the start line in cycling events, participation in the LeadBoat challenge will be equal parts male and female.
