Barn Burner

September 17


The Baren Burner is a terrific endurance mountain biking race taking off from Flagstaff Arizona. It is part of the Leadville Race Series and is organized by Life Time Events.

According to the Leadville race series themselves, this is “Endurance mountain bike racing at its Western best. The course is a 25-mile loop on Coconino and Kaibab Forest Service roads.  Riders have the option of going 1 lap, 2 laps, or 4 laps.  Both the 50 and 100-mile versions can be done as a relay.  The course is not technically challenging and is considered a “roadie” mountain bike course, meaning it is beginner-friendly (ish) and fast for those with more experience.  Don’t let that fool you though, those that think cross bikes are possible are usually fixing flats and we have seen our fair share of not-so-fun injuries.  All in all, you are riding at altitude, in cooler weather, with cool people, and camping out — what more can you ask for?”

The Leadville Race Series is a famous grouping of endurance mountain bike races across the United States that have endurance lengthed 50-100 mile options. These events in the Leadville Race Series, all of which are organized by Life Time Events include:

  • Barn Burner 

The 100-mile race option for the Barn Burner is a Leadville 100 qualifier. For those of you who are unaware, the Leadville 100 is arguably the most famous mountain bike race in history at a grueling 100 mikes and at a high altitude in Leadville Colorado. In order to qualify to race in Leadville, you have to finish a Leadville race series event, as listed above, in a certain amount of time. Only the 100-mile length of the Barn burner has the possibility of qualifying. And if you simply want to race the barn burner on its own, that is completely fine.

The Barn Burner is organized by one of the big dogs in the biking world, Life Time Events, who have a great reputation for the organization, logistics, aid stations, etc so you can expect to be taken care of nicely at the race. Life Time runs some of the most famous events in the country to the likes of Unbound Gravel (formerly Dirty Kanza), Crusher in the Tushar, Silver Rush 50 run, Big Sugar Gravel, Sea Otter Classic, and many many more.

The Barn Burner is a top mountain bike event with lengths for every skill level as well as not being too technical of a course meaning nearly all levels of mountain bikers can partake! Highly recommended by the Strambecco editing team; enjoy!
