Does it also say "you can register at the last minute if you're a Trek sponsored rider working for Lance" even though the race entry is supposed to be a lottery...
I know A LOT of finishers that have not gotten into the race every year. I think for the majority of entries it's luck of the draw, but I'm also sure there are some selective decisions being made. If it was my race/business I would probably do the same thing, it would be tough to handle since no matter what you do you're going to disappoint half the people that attempt to get in.funny how the people who've done it multiple times (and finished) always get in
Yeah, I know a guy who came in 14th several years back and hasn't gotten back in since even after volunteering a few of those years. I was denied the first year I applied and got in the second. I think a lot of it comes down to who you know. Fair? Not really, but it's their race so I guess they can do whatever they want.IndecentExposure said:The whole thing is rigged. They know how many times you've done it in the past.... funny how the people who've done it multiple times (and finished) always get in. So, the lottery is only for those that have never competed before.
I'd have better luck at a casino.
Couple buddies did it. Lots of jeep roads, apparently.SingleTrackHound said:I like the sound of LV Silver Rush 50 mile race on different date. A lot less money and no lottery. Has anyone done it? Same course as LT100? I thinking about checking it out.

Make it a shuttle ride from Copper to Tennessee Pass and you've got a deal!!schnauzers said:Pfffttt!
I've got $.02 on "I will try and drive up there to watch it this year". I've got an even better idea. I will drive up there to ride Camp Hale to Tennessee Pass and then "maybe try and watch it this year".
