Follow our wagon train up north to Flagstaff for the fifth annual Landis Cyclery Barn Burner 104! Come and get out of the heat, ride through the beautiful Coconino and Kaibab National Forest and camp on private land. Bring the whole family; we have something for everyone!
We're looking forward to another fun event in 2015! Join us Friday evening for live, acoustic music during packet pickup. The quarter-mile looped pump track will also be open so your kids can practice for Saturday. Saturday morning, while parents are out riding, kids can participate in planned events including pump track races by age, frisbee and bean bag toss games and other activities. The awards ceremony will take place Saturday afternoon and campers will be treated to a campfire and s'mores**, beverages provided by Four Peaks Brewing Company — first 2 are free, $2 per thereafter and 100% of proceeds benefit local trails — and a family friendly movie beginning at dusk.

• 4 p.m. Last rider allowed out on last lap
• 6 p.m. Awards ceremony

Endurance mountain bike racing at its Western best. This is an endurance mountain bike event with 26-mile (one loop), 52-mile (two loops) and 104-mile (four loops) distance options. The course is a 26-mile loop on Forest Service roads. The course is not technically challenging, and is considered a "roadie" mountain bike course, meaning it is beginner friendly(ish) and fast for those with more experience. There are a few sketchy spots to keep you honest and climbs to make your lungs hurt a bit. All in all you are riding at altitude, in cooler weather, with cool people and camping out — what more can you ask for?
Start Elevation: 7674.0 ft
Max Elevation: 8110.0 ft
Elevation Gain (per loop): 1581 ft
Elevation Gain (total for four loops): 6324 ft
Please note: Due to safety restrictions on the course wheelchair participation is not permitted.
Pre-Ride: Saturday, August 22
Join us for a no-drop, 1-loop pre-ride of the Barn Burner 104 course.
Meet at 8:30 a.m.
Each Leadville Qualifying Series race provides 25-100 qualifying slots to the Leadville Trail 100 MTB, based on the total number of registered riders at each qualifier event. Half of the qualifying spots will be allocated based on the top age-group performances and half will be drawn among riders who have finished the qualifier race within the allocated cut-off time.
As one of the most well known mountain bike races on earth, getting into the Leadville Trail 100 MTB has always been difficult. LT100 Qualifiers are long and tough, with lots of climbing. They are similar to the classic course at Leadville in that they consist mainly of rugged jeep roads of gravel and dirt. A qualifier event could not only gain you entry into the LT100 MTB, but it could also boost your corral starting position in the Race Across the Sky!
Rider starting positions will be organized in color-coded corrals. These positions will be based on a finish time from the 2014 (year prior only) LT100 MTB race, a 2014 or 2015 qualifier event finish time, or if you hold a current USCI Pro Elite license. Please enter finish times or license numbers when prompted during the registration process. However, if you race a qualifier after previously gaining entry, you MUST email Abby Long at email@example.com to inform her of your finish time and she will then place you accordingly. You will not be placed automatically. Corrals will be assigned as follows:
The Awards Ceremony will take place at 6 p.m., approximately 30 minutes after final completion of the race. If you do not attend the award ceremony to receive your award you must send a check made out to the Leadville Race Series for $15 with the name, bib #, finish time and mailing address to:
1795 Dogwood Street Suite 300
Louisville, CO 80027
*Please note that 2015 awards will not be shipped until the end of our race series season.
All riders will receive a participant T-shirt, and riders completing the race within the allotted finish time will receive a finisher medal.
