Leadville Trail 100 MTB Gold Buckles

The Leadville Trail 100 MTB is one of the oldest of a growing number of 100-mile (160 km) marathon mountain bike races.  The ‘race across the sky‘, the Leadville 100 MTB has many unique challenges and all competitors have their work cut out just making it to the finish line.

Each year a select few demonstrate that they have the drive and stamina to complete the LT100 MTB course in under nine hours and bring home a much-coveted golden buckle.  Here are members of the Team Herbalife 24 with their buckles:
