Wonder if Mathew McConaughey will tag along?
Here's a link to the Leadville Chronicle article on Lance Armstrong planning to ride the Leadville 100 next year. My favorite line in the story: when race director Ken Chlouber says Armstrong is the most popular man in America. I'm sure Leadville 100 veterans are curious about how Lance, the king of road racing, will do on this legendary race that takes riders up to 12,600 feet. He'll probably smoke at the beginning because the race starts on pavement. But what about the other sections, like the descent on Powerline, that's rough and often deeply rutted? We'll see.
