Registration for the 2011 Leadville Trail 100 Mountain Bike

I saw this press release come across my email today so I thought I would give it a quick read. Toward the end of the article there are two sentences that caught my eye about the 2011 registration. I know alot of people are wondering how this would work. The two sentences I have highlighted below will give you a little idea. So, there are definitely some changes with registration for 2011. I did go to the Leadville 100 web site to see if there was any more information about registration and I could not find any.

Registration for the 2011 Leadville Trail 100 mountain bike race opens Thursday, November 4, 2010, and closes on January 31, 2011. All entrants are chosen by lottery. For more information, visit

What do you think? New owners new process?

Nothing new here...

they've always 'claimed' that entries were selected by lottery. Their recent announcement isn't really anything new, unless they actually use a lottery. Most folks are pretty convinced already that they haven't really selected entrants by lottery for a long time now.
