I cannot say that I expected this conversation when I met these two motorcycle riders in the parking lot at the bottom of Lookout Mountain.

Darryl rode the Leadville 100 Mountain Bicycle Race for ten (or maybe even eleven) years.  He managed to cross the finish in a best 10:45.

Debby ran the Leadville 100, finishing twice in her first and last of five entries.   Her best time was a 29:21:10.  Her DNF’s included a 55, a 50 and a 76 DNFs shoehorned between her two 100 mile finishes.  

The two are partners in an injection molding business. 

Endurance athletes on motorcycles…..sounds like a good theme for a TV show…
