Dave Wiens and Lance Armstrong at 2008 Leadville 100
With Lance Armstrong fresh off his 3rd place at the Tour de France, lots of people think he’ll win easily over Dave Wiens at this year’s Leadville 100. I agree Lance seems in much better shape than last year. It also seems that finishing 2nd last year got under his skin so he’s motivated.

Dave Wiens has won the Leadville 100 six years in a row and holds the course record. He knows better than anyone how to race the Leadville 100. He has also been training hard this summer. I put together a fun list for MTBR of the top 10 reasons Dave Wiens will beat Lance Armstrong this Saturday.

10.) Twin Lakes is going to have its annual Coloradoans vs Texans tomato war a couple weeks early. It won’t go well for Lance.

9.) Dave won’t crash in the creek crossing at the bottom of Powerline like Lance did in a Winter Park race in 1999.

8.) Dave is from Colorado and not a transplant from Texas

7.) Dave has figured out how to use the electricity on Powerline to climb faster.

6.) The Tour de France wasn’t a good way to train for the Leadville 100

Go see the article on MTBR to see the rest of the top 10 reasons Dave Wiens will beat Lance Armstrong in the 2009 Leadville 100.

    I don't know, man… Lance won at Snowmass last week, so he's looking pretty good on the mountain bike right now, too. Maybe Levi will ditch 'em both on the climbs… 🙂
