Elite Women - gold course: Leadville - Leadville
Rose Grant took a well-earned victory at the 2021 Leadville Trail 100 MTB on Saturday. She covered the 100-mile rugged mountain bike route in 7:23 beating runner-up Moriah Wilson by more than three minutes and third placed Sarah Strum by nearly seven minutes.
“My favorite part of the day, in a love-hate type of way, was the depth of field this year. The racing was completely different than two years ago; the women were mixing it up the entire time and kept the pressure on. It was super suspenseful as to who was going to be the strongest," said Rose Grant following her victory.
The challenging route offered 100 miles of rough terrain through the Colorado Rockies as the course brought them through 13,000 feet of net elevation gain, topping out at 12,424 feet.
