Leadville 2010 Video: What’s JHK’s Plan for Saturday?

Jeremy Horgan-Kobelski’s “day job” is racing cross-country for the Subaru-Trek Mountain Bike Team. So when he raced — and won — the Bailey Hundo in Colorado last June, it was something of a departure from his regular gig.

Actually it was more than a departure, call it a massively long and painful deviation. It was JHK’s first 100-mile bike race. To be more precise, it was the World Cup XC racer’s first time spending 100 miles on a mountain bike.

The 2010 Leadville Trail 100 will be JHK’s second 100 miler. Check out the Trek 29er he’ll roll (hell, we’ve just got to put a slash in there and call it a Trek/Fisher Superfly Elite).
