The Leadville Trail 100 is a 105 mile XC Mountain Bike race that takes place at high altitude in the Colorado Rockies. We sent Chris Opie out to race it, blind, with no training and very little time to adjust to the altitude. Do you need experience to race a 100 mile marathon, or can you attempt it in ignorance?

As a novice mountain bike racer with a solid level of base fitness from his road riding career, how will Chris get on against experienced Leadville veterans from Team Garmin, Walter Summers & Jordan Miller. Will he be able to tear his eyes away from the incredible views of the Colorado Rockies and concentrate on both his Garmin and the singletrack ahead of him?
