Will Lance and Leipheimer Crush Leadville 100 Record?

Dave Wiens and Lance Armstrong at 2008 Leadville 100
In an interview on VeloNews, Lance Armstrong says he is bringing Levi Leipheimer to the Leadville 100 in August. He says the Tour de France and his other races are just a build up to Leadville. He says “seriously” and then he gives a big smile. This years race is August 15th.

He thinks with a strong group of racers they can bring the record down close to 6 hours. Dave Wiens set the record last year at 6:45 with Lance at 6:47. In 2007 Wiens set the old record of 6:58 with Floyd Landis pushing him. My personal record is 8:18.

Dave Wiens has won the last 6 years. He’s a Colorado native and is a huge favorite of the racers and fans. I’m sure he’ll come in top form and I hope he makes it win #7.

I’m sure I’ll just get glimpse of the top riders on their way down as I start my crawl up the Columbine Climb. I’ll be going to my 6th Leadville finish.
