Gerry Cody Podium Finish At Leadville Silver Rush

Racers from Herbalife24 Base Camp lined up with over 1,000 competitors for the grueling Leadville Silver Rush 50 mountain bike race.  It’s a race that has always been popular, but for the first time the Silver Rush 50 served as a qualifier for this year’s Leadville Trail 100.  With over 100 entry places into the Leadville 100 at stake, the field set a new record, and fast cyclists from all over the country were in place to try and earn their LT100 entry.

The Silver Rush 50 served as a nice fitness tune-up and self-evaluation waypoint as the team riders prepare for the Leadville Trail 100, which is now just three and a half weeks away. Team Herbalife24 riders from around the country and around the globe will be looking to earn the coveted silver belt buckle for a qualifying finish time.

The riders were refulling with Herbalife24 Prolong.

Gerry Cody moved up from approximately 8th position, including a daring pass in the final 200 meter sweeping downhill finishing shoot, to snare a podium finish in 3rd place overall and the #1 spot in the Open-Pro category.   Whitman had similar luck moving from approximately 15th place, to pass many riders and secure the final spot in the Top-10 for Herbalife24.
