Wilmington Whiteface 100 June 22nd

21 May 2014 No Comment

The Adirondack region in northeastern New York is a recreational paradise of high rocky summits and breathtaking vistas — both of which factor into the sadistic mountain bike race known as the Wilmington Whiteface 100K, part of the Wilmington Whiteface Bike Fest. Where Olympic heroes once skied down the greatest vertical drop east of the Rockies, you will face a decidedly different direction. Straight up. Good luck with all that.  http://www.wilmingtonwhitefacemtb.com/

The race will start and finish at Whiteface Mountain and will explore the jeep roads near Jay and Saddleback Mountains before climbing up the front of Whiteface Mountain, which was the site of the 1980 Olympic Winter Games’ downhill ski races—the greatest vertical drop east of the Rockies. Make it to the top for unparalleled views from the summit of the Olympic Mountain.

Aid stations will be located approximately every 20km along the course (20km, 40km, 60km, 80km, finish). Each aid station will be stocked with Gu Energy Gels, Gu Chomps, Water, Electrolyte drink, fruit and light snacks.

LT100 MTB QUALIFICATION SYSTEM

Each Leadville Qualifying Series race provides 25-100 qualifying slots to the Leadville Trail 100 MTB, based on the total number of registered riders at each qualifier event. Half of the qualifying spots will be allocated based on the top age-group performances and half will be drawn among riders who have finished the qualifier race within the allocated cut-off time.

Visit our LT100 MTB Qualification System page for more information.

LT100 MTB CORRAL/START POSITION

As one of the most well known mountain bike races on earth, getting into the Leadville Trail 100 MTB has always been difficult. LT100 Qualifiers are long and tough, with lots of climbing. They are similar to the classic course at Leadville in that they consist mainly of rugged jeep roads of gravel and dirt. A qualifier event could not only gain you entry into the LT100 MTB, but it could also boost your corral starting position in the Race Across the Sky!

Rider starting positions will be organized in color-coded corrals. These positions will be based on a finish time from the 2013 (year prior only) LT100 MTB race, a 2013 or 2014 qualifier event finish time, or if you hold a current USCI Pro Elite license. Please enter finish times or license numbers when prompted during the registration process.

AWARDS CEREMONY
Awards Ceremony will take place approximately 30 minutes after final completion of the race. If you do not attend the award ceremony to receive your award you must send a check made out to the Leadville Race Series for $15 with the name, bib #, finish time and mailing address to:
Leadville Race Series
Attn: Malin Bengtsson

Leadville, CO 80461

*Please note that awards will not be shipped until the end of our race series season, September 15, 2014.

Engraved bike rotor plaques will be awarded 3 deep in each division and to the top 3 teams. Age groups are male/female in 10 year increments (20-29, 30-39, etc.). All riders will receive a participant T-shirt, and riders completing the race within the allotted finish time will receive a finisher medal.
