2024 Leadville 100 MTB

Aug 10, 2024
Leadville, CO

This year will be the 17th year First Descents has fielded a team for the infamous Leadville 100 Mountain Bike Race in Leadville, CO – 104 miles long with over 14,000 feet of elevation gain at altitudes up to 12,600 feet.

In 2006, First Descents’ Executive Director, Allan Goldberg, suffered a recurrence of cancer that had been in remission for 26 years. Allan needed a challenge to help him mentally prepare for the long months of chemo and radiation ahead.  He chose the 2007 Leadville 100 mountain-bike race and challenged his oldest and best friend, Brent Goldstein, to join him. They all raced the 2007 Leadville 100 and raised nearly $85,000 for First Descents! Sadly, Allan passed away in 2008. Now, in his honor Team First Descents lives on.

The fundraising minimum to join Team First Descents is $3,500. Team FD athletes will receive the following benefits:

  • FREE race entry
  • Access to our Fundraising Toolkit + other resources as needed
  • Access to the Team First Descents Aid Station at Twin Lakes on race day
  • Team FD Primal cycling kit

The 2024 team is full. To be added to our waitlist, please fill out the form below.
