Weapons of @ss Destruction said:According to Levi himself he has spent a lot of time riding MTB for training in the off season for many years now. Apparently he gets to share trail time with some top mountain bikers, so riding at this type of pace is nothing new for him even if he's not used to competition. Leadville is the closest thing he's going to get on dirt to a big road race, in terms of tactics and course.
chasbo said:Nothing against Levi, but I can't be thrilled about a roadie winning a mountain bike race. I miss the racing from the 80's and early 90's. Oh well, just labeled myself a grumpy old school guy...sheesh
9000ft said:Why label yourself or other people? It's a bike race. Everybody has to ride a bike. Personally, I see myself as a human who loves cycling, both on dirt and on pavement.
Levi was stronger than the competition and won. Pretty simple.

But PLEASE stop calling Lance Armstrong, "Hope," it's probably the most pretentious thing I've ever heard. When you call him that, it makes it seem like you worship him as some kind of messiah.

Squares said:Perhaps we should get a fund together to have Mr. Old School come show Levi and all the rest of us non-Europeans how superior he is next year.
Better yet, make that a bet. We pay his way to get to the race and if he doesn't beat all the North Americans he reimburses us all, double what we paid.
How about it Old School? Ready to show how inferior Levi, JHK and all the rest of the inferior North Americans are?
