S4E04: Shooting for a Sub-8 Finish...On a Gravel Bike
Play • 1 hr 15 min

This episode is an answer to a question many racers have asked a number of times: is the Leadville 100 actually a great GRAVEL bike course? Well, we found a guy who — along with a few friends — has taken this question way beyond the “thought experiment” stage.

Stephen Fitzgerald of Boulder Colorado — owner of Rodeo Adventure Labs, a small bike company with some VERY capable gravel racing bikes — set out to race the Leadville 100 on his Trail Donkey...not just to finish, but in search of a sub-EIGHT race time.

Whether you're actually interested in trying this course on a gravel bike or just flummoxed by why anyone would try, we guarantee: you're going to LOVE Stephen's honest, insightful, and hilarious telling of his race.
