Despite darkening clouds of doping allegations hanging over their heads, Levi Leipheimer and longtime buddy Lance Armstrong will race the Leadville 100 mountain bike epic this year, with Lance defending the title he took so decisively from multi-winner and all-around Mr. Clean role model Dave Wiens last year.
The allegations against Armstrong have received wide publicity, but only recently have similar charges against Leipheimer gotten similar notoriety.
Wiens will be back in the mix this year, and Lance’s lackluster showing at the Tour may provide Dave some glimmer of hope. The only problem will be Levi’s coming off a strong Tour performance.
Should be a good show, this Saturday in Colorado.
