Leadville 100 Mountain Bike Entry eBay Auction

Leadville 100 - Bottom of Columbine Climb

If you didn’t get picked in the Leadville 100 lottery and you still want to do the race after the felony charges drama this week, here’s a chance to get in and help a charity. A Leadville 100 entry is being auctioned on eBay to benefit Arts Street. Normally you shouldn’t buy a Leadville 100 entry on eBay but the race organizers son, Cole, is on the board of directors for Arts Street and is a legitimate entry.

Currently there’s only a day left on the auction. The price is at $521 but the reserve hasn’t been met. Over the last few weeks they sold an additional 25 entries for $2,275 each to benefit the LT100 Legacy Foundation so I’d guess the reserve is a fair amount higher.

Arts Street is a 10 year-old non-profit youth program in Denver that creates opportunities for the youth of Colorado. The opportunities provided are designed to foster the inspiration and education of these youth to become tomorrow’s professionals – supporting the workforce needs. This is achieved by developing and implementing highly diversified career-based, educational programs that incorporate real-world learning, artistic expression and creative thinking.

    Looks to me like Ken (or his son) is trying to fix this PR mess. Do we know when this item was added on EBAY?

    Many people have a bad taste for Leadville now and I don’t think this will change it.

    I’ve known about this auction since last week. I think it was a 10 day auction so it was posted before the impersonation charges were filed.

    Cole is on our board and offered us an entry to the race a while ago. We just put it on for a 10 day auction. We are promoting our Art for Ransom event. Our non-profit organization offers classes to low-income youth in Art. The reserve isn’t set too high.

    ArtsStreet, Thanks for stopping by with the info on the eBay auction.

  5. ArtsStreet says:

    I wanted to let your blog know that we are re listing the Leadville entry without a reserve (http://item.ebay.com/260605605995). We really want to thank Cole and the Leadville 100 for the opportunity to auction this entry to provide scholarships for youth this summer.
