Qualifying series announced for Leadville 100

For the first time in the event’s history, the Leadville Trail 100 MTB Race will hold official qualifiers, dubbed the Leadville Qualifying Series.

A rider’s performance at the three races could guarantee a spot at the same start line where legendary cyclists – such as Lance Armstrong, Levi Leipheimer, Rebecca Rusch, Tinker Juarez and Dave Wiens – have once started.

Each race will provide 100 qualifying spots to the LT100, the best known and most prestigious mountain bike race in North America. The spots will be allocated partially on the basis of age-group performance and partly by lottery among finishers.

In addition, LQS showcases some of the best places to ride in America: from the Adirondacks to the Sierra Nevadas to the Rocky Mountains. Registration for these qualifying races goes on sale Thursday.

The qualifying races will be June 19 (Wilmington, N.Y.), July 10 (Lake Tahoe, Nevada) and July 31 (Crested Butte).
