Landis Racing Shenandoah Mountain 100 Tomorrow

Floyd Landis is racing the Shenandoah Mountain 100 tomorrow. In a post on MTBR, someone, who has done both Leadville and Shenandoah, says Shenandoah is harder.

The Leadville 100 is jeep road and doesn’t really have anything technical so it wouldn’t be hard to have a tougher course. The other Colorado 100 milers all have tougher courses than Leadville. The Durango 100 is still looking for its first finisher under 9 hours compared to Dave Wiens breaking 7 this year at Leadville. In 2003, the first year the Durango 100 was held was the year I did 8:18 at Leadville. Durango was the next weekend so my legs weren’t fully recovered. I did a 10:55 which was still good enough for 4th place. There were 66 starters and 15 finishers.

Even though the 24 Hours of Adrenlin Solo “Worlds” is also this weekend at Laguna Seca Raceway, a lot of the big name endurance mountain bike racers will be at Shenandoah. Chris Eatough and other big names versus Landis should be interesting. Bloggers Danielle and Harlan will be there.

In other Landis news, the arbitration ruling on his positive test from last year’s Tour de France is expected later this month.

    I was curious of the comparison of the Leadville race to the SM100

    I had figured that the SM100 was more technical

    good to hear that the other Colorado 100 milers vary in attraction/appeal/difficulty

    Landis did well
    winning would not be as good of a PR stint as second or third
