Vapor trail 125 mountain bike race 2010, single speed. Started at 10:00PM in Salida Colorado when normal people are going to bed. In order to enter the race you must submit a race resume and be accepted. The popular comparison is the Vapor 125 is like doing two laps of the Leadville 100 with a big portion at night. I would have to agree! There is a two hour hike-a-bike topping out just under 13,000' at around 4:00AM with temps at 11 degrees. I got frostbite on the tips of my fingers. Better gloves next time. Riding a singlespeed was another kick in the teeth as well but worth it. I toasted my fork seals somewhere in the night as well. The people at the aid stations were great. It was pretty cool having Dave Wiens lube my chain at one. Great race!
