Leadville 2012

I watched the 2010 Leadville 100 Mountain Bike Race from DVD on Sunday. That was the year Levi Leipheimer blew away the recently set record time that Lance Armstrong set in 2009. Leadville Colorado at 10,152 feet above sea level traverses 100 miles in an out and back challenge with 12,000 feet of ascent with forest, twin lakes, the pipeline, the powerline and little oxygen. The personal stories of the men and women who take part in this epic adventure are tales of determination, fortitude and true grit.

If you need help on achieving this awesome goal, Chris Carmichael has a team to help you train. And now is the time to start.

2012 CTS Leadville 100 Coaching/Camp Package Lotteries

To maximize the improvements you can achieve in endurance, power, and weight management, CTS is proud to offer a limited number of Leadville 100 Coaching Packages that start in November 1, 2011 and include a guaranteed entry into the 2012 Leadville Trail 100 Mountain Bike Race.

This lottery is open to all athletes through October 31, 2011. Pricing and information available below. Call 866-355-0645 with questions. Complete details and rules/regulations available here.

Option 1: CTS LT100 Premium Package
With this coaching package you’ll be paired with an experienced CTS Coach who has specific knowledge and experience with the Leadville 100 Mountain Bike Race. Your training plan will be hand-built one month at time – and adjusted every week as necessary - based on your progress and ongoing phone and email communication between you and your coach. Your training plan and training log will be available and can be updated online and via smartphone applications, and your coach will also analyze and utilize data from your power meter, heart rate monitor, GPS unit, etc. to monitor and adjust your training. Price: $288/month*

Option 2: CTS LT100 Ultimate Package The Ultimate package is the most comprehensive way to prepare for the Leadville 100. You’ll work with a coach hand-selected by Chris Carmichael for his or her LT100-specific experience and expertise at the Ultimate service level – an upgrade from the Premium service level featuring increased responsiveness and nutrition analysis. And for 2 ½ days in July 2012 you’ll join the CTS Coaches for our proven Reconnaissance & Training Camp on the Leadville 100 course. These coveted camp slots sell out in minutes, but through this exclusive package you are guaranteed a camp slot at a significantly discounted price. Price: $620/month (includes coaching and discounted camp fees)* *plus LT100 Mountain Bike Race Entry Fee

HOW THE CTS LOTTERY WILL WORK 1. Click on the button below to go to the CTS Online Store. Click the Leadville tab and add your choice of LT100 Coaching/Camp options to your shopping cart.

4. CTS will notify all athletes who registered for the CTS Lottery of their status on Monday, October 31, 2011.

“Over the past two years, CTS has helped me take more than two hours off my LT100 time! Your expertise before the race, and the support during, have been crucial to my success. Thanks!” - Jeff C.
