The Leadville Race Series will hold a Leadville Stage Race, spreading the traditional course of the Leadville Trail 100 MTB over three days, from July 24 to July 26, race coordinators said Wednesday

Anyone who can beat the splits of Alban Lakata, the Leadville Trail 100 course record holder, on any of the three days will automatically earn a spot in the sold-out 100-mile race. The team that puts together the fastest three-day total will also gain a spot in the big race.

The solo entry fee is $425, and the entry fee for teams is $675, according to the race website. Like the larger race, the three-day competition will start and end at the Lake County Rodeo Grounds. The first- and third-day stages will each be 42 miles. The second day, featuring the climb and descent of Columbine, will be just 16 miles.
