Leadville Silver Rush 50 Mile MTB Race, 2014
This Video documents the Leadville Silver Rush MTB race on July 9, 2014. As all the events in the Leadville Race Series, the 50 mile bike race race offers a serious challenge for all riders of any level. Starting at 10,200 feet in the city of Leadville in Colorado, this race is a out and back course and it seems you’re either going uphill or blasting downhill. Most people that I have talked to say it is the hardest 50 mile race in the country and they get toknow this at the very start of the race! The start is up a steep hill and it only get harder! With over 7,000 feet of climbing his race will demand everything you’ve got. The steep loose rock climbs take the rider to 12,000 feet above sea level and coming down is a challenge as well. but its all worth it!
