Half of the qualifying spots will be allocated based on the top age-group performances and half will be drawn among riders who have finished the qualifier race within the allocated cut-off time.
          Qualifying slots will be distributed at the Awards Ceremony. There will be 25-100 slots per qualifying event. Qualifying slot winners MUST BE PRESENT, as the roll-down qualifiers rule will be in effect at each event. All qualifier slots will be awarded and redeemed on race day. You must pay your entry to the LT100 when you accept your slot. You will have the option to register for the current year or the following year’s LT100 and must decide when accepting your qualification slot. All entries into the LT100 are non-refundable and non-transferrable.

                      As one of the most well-known mountain bike races on earth, getting into the Leadville Trail 100 MTB has always been difficult. LT100 Qualifiers are long and tough, with lots of climbing. They are similar to the classic course at Leadville in that they consist mainly of rugged jeep roads of gravel and dirt. A qualifier event could not only gain you entry into the LT100 MTB, but it could also boost your corral starting position in the Race Across the Sky!
                          Rider starting positions will be organized in color-coded corrals. These positions will be based on a finish time from a previous (see corral chart) LT100 MTB finish/qualifier finish, or if you hold a current USAC or UCI Pro Cross Country Elite license. Please enter finish times or email a current photo of your USAC or UCI Pro Cross Country Elite license when prompted during the registration process. However, if you race a qualifier after previously gaining entry, you MUST email Athlete Services a direct link to your individual results so you will be placed accordingly. You will not be placed automatically. Corrals will be assigned as follows:
                                **CORRAL ASSIGNMENT TIMES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE AT ANY TIME AT THE SOLE DISCRETION OF THE LEADVILLE RACE SERIES.**
