How Others Viewed the 2009 Leadville Event

Dave Wiens just posted his Leadville 2009 wrap up:
Part 1
Part 2

The comments to his Part 2 entry much sum up how most Leadville racers feel about him.

For example: I have to be honest and say that I am far more impressed with you as a person than as a racer. There are plenty of guys who have freakish abilities to do what you guys do at the front of the pack, but not many who have the grace, intelligence and perspective to handle themselves with such class at all times, win or lose. For that you are a true role model and I only wish there were more guys like you throughout sport for our kids to emulate.

Rebecca Rusch also posted her summary.

It is cool to see they think the event is tough and challenging, but it is special to them, too.
