I’ve consistently said that this year’s Leadville 100 is the Lance Armstrong race to watch for 2009 (him having no chance in the Giro and Tour). With all those mountain stages under his belt, Lance has to be considered the favorite. Turns out, though, that the Alps aren’t just for the skinny tire set. Dave Wiens, who kicked Lance’s sorry ass all the way back to Austin last year, is riding the TransAlp challenge, the toughest mountain bike stage race in the world. Go Dave!

Add to the calendar: Kranked’s new movie, “Revolve,” gets a show on the big screen a week from Thursday, July 30, at the North Bend Theater, with proceeds going to a great cause: Mountain biking access! See ya there…
