Elite Men - gold course: Leadville - Leadville
Keegan Swenson came out on top to win the 2021 Leadville Trail 100 on Saturday. The American beat Lachlan Morton (EF Education Nippo) by close to eight minutes, finishing the race in a time of six hours and 11 minutes. Howard Grotts completed the podium, finishing over ten minutes behind Swenson.
Swenson made his move on Powerline inbound, where he distanced his main rivals.
“I just tried to ride smooth, Lachlan is a heck of a rider and so is Howard. Columbine was my favorite part of the course -- I loved the views, seeing everyone climbing up as I was descending, everyone was cheering for each other. I’m definitely coming back next year," he said.
Peter Stetina had been given fourth, ahead of Payson McElveen, but race organisers later corrected the pair's finishing times, which appeared to fall out of sync due to a timing chip error with McElveen elevated to fourth on the same time as Stetina. Both riders are set to compete in the SBT GRVL race on Sunday.
