We love a good Leadville story, and John Gaston is a great storyteller. And it doesn't hurt that the only guy who could beat him in the 2022 LT100MTB was some guy named Keegan.
The crazy thing is, racing bikes is not really what he's into. They're more of his side hustle -- his off-season way to stay sharp and in shape.
But that doesn't mean he doesn't sweat the details, and it for sure doesn't mean he doesn't know his way around the course.
Enjoy John's story, and join us in relishing that an essentially unsponsored rider can get out there and absolutely crush the competition.
