    That would be my guess. Floyd is incredible on a mtb.

    Also, according to Lance Armstrong's war Floyd once rode a wheelie down the side of a mountain after tacoing his front wheel

    Yeah this sucks. My boyfriends father is the Race Owner. Just let me tell that what you read in the news is not always true.

    As for Floyd he is still a go for the race as far as we know.

    Snowy, I am kind of a voyeur in here rarely post. I actually read alot on the Commuter side of the forum. Are you in Leadville? I saw somewhere that you know the folks that put the LT100 on, I was wondering what you know about the lottery? Do they post it online or do I need to wait for my snail mail to arrive? What is the best source in here for info on the race? It seems you are a frequent forum person so I thought I'd ask.

    Thanks
    Sergio
