Lance Armstrong VS. Dave Wiens: Round Two

Posted By: The Ski Channel on August 14, 2009 10:36 am

The Leadville 100 high elevation mountain bike rece begins this Saturday at 6:30 a.m., and two heavyweights are primed and ready for another bought after a close finish in last years event. Dave Wiens, six time Leadville champ and local legend, defeated Lance Armstrong by a mere two minutes in a record 6 hour, 45 minute finish last year. Both riders are eager to challange each other yet again for the highly anticipated re-match. Lance has been working out hard on his mountain bike to prepare, and seems to be gunning to cross the finish line in first place this year. Mr. Armstrong recently won the “Blast the Mass” mountain bike race in Snowmass, and figures to build on that win.

Good luck to all the racers in the event, should prove to be a hard fought victory for whichever champion prevails for the day!
