What Should I Ride at Leadville This Year? How About I Let YOU Decide?

07.25.2016 | 1:25 pm

A Tuesday Update from Fatty: So far, the numbers have been a little…shall we say “lopsided”…as to how I should focus my efforts at Leadville:

Chart 1: How Should Fatty Ride?

This incredibly skewed result is, I should point out, thanks to a very major donation. That said, even without that major donation, the results would still be strongly favoring me being The Hammer’s domestique this year. The contest is still young, however, and this vote could still be overturned with either a major donation or many small donations.

I think it’s amazing that not a single person has voted that I should race singlespeed, for myself.

Regardless, I will abide by the result of this vote, and plan to bring both my geared and singlespeed hardtails to Leadville. And unless things change drastically, it looks like I need to choose a 34×20 gearing for my singlespeed, with an eye toward pulling The Hammer.

The Hammer Vs. Monster question is much closer:

Hammer vs Monster

Based on how readers are voting with their dollars, people believe that this mother-daughter battle is going to be close.

I’ll update again tomorrow…when I post a new episode of the Rockwell Relay Race Report. Because, yes, we’ve crossed the $2500 story-hostage threshold. Thank you!

A Note from Fatty About the Rockwell Relay Story: The Rockwell Relay Story is being held hostage. It will be released as soon as I have raised the $2500 I have promised to NICA. Read on to find out how you can help read part 13 soon. 

A Note From Fatty: I’m planning to do three fundraisers this year. Right now begins the first — for The National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA). I’m really excited about this one because I love what NICA stands for, and because of the very cool prizes I will be offering, and because I’ll be doing some very fun and weird things for this contest.

These fun and weird things are:

  1. I will give you the opportunity to win something based on a future event.
  2. I will give you the opportunity to make the two most critical decisions regarding how I approach the Leadville 100 for me, and I will abide by those decisions whether I want to or not.
  3. I want this fundraiser to succeed, but The Monster needs it to succeed. She’s racing the Leadville 100 in a few weeks in a charity slot for NICA. So when you donate, you’re making me happy, you’re NICA very happy, and you’re making The Monster extra double-happy.
I’ll explain all of this a little later in this post. But first, you need to read why The Monster is fundraising for NICA as she races the Leadville 100 this year. 

All or Nothing
by Melisa “The Monster” Rollins 

I am—and have always been—an “all or nothing” kind of girl. If you have been following my past year of riding and racing, you wouldn’t find this too hard to believe.

To fill those of you in who haven’t been following, I didn’t particularly start off my endurance biking career easily. In March of this year, I finished my first-ever mountain bike race, the True Grit Epic: fifty brutal miles of the most technical trails in Southern Utah.

A little later, I raced the Six Hours of Frog Hollow. Then, just over a week ago I finished my third monstrous mountain bike race, the Crusher in the Tushar [Story on that coming soonish. - FC], and am looking forward to next month where I’ll be racing the Leadville 100.

OK. I lied.

True Grit Epic was actually my second ever mountain bike race. My first was just under three years ago, when I decided to try joining and racing with my high school’s NICA mountain biking team.

The NICA race happened to be held just a few miles away from my house, and because I can’t even count on two hands the number of bikes in my garage, I figured I might be able to wrangle up a bike for an hour or so.

Though it was fun, my day ended in a massive wreck:

Three years ago

That, to be honest, is probably not a surprise for those of you who have followed my story. Things haven’t changed much:

Three months ago

IMG 2087
Three days ago

At the time, I decided that this sport would be placed in my designated “nothing” category.

For the time being, my “all” would go elsewhere.

My All

During high school, almost the entirety of my identity revolved around playing soccer. If there wasn’t a ball glued to my feet, it could have only meant one of two things: the administrators at school had taken it away for disrupting the hallways, or both of my legs were broken [Her legs were never actually broken; she’s just being dramatic. - FC].

While friends were out enjoying their teenage years on Friday nights, I was down at the park practicing until my feet blistered.

Timpanogos High School is known for two things: its 95% pass rate on the country-wide AP Calculus test, and its high number of soccer girls whose hands are decorated wit state rings.

Desiring to be a part of this crowd, I ramped up my practicing, and made it my number one goal to be a part of this team. This meant two-a-day practicing for the entirety of the summer, and the best fitness I had ever had. Because of this, it wasn’t much of a surprise that I ended up making the team, but the number of minutes I spent on the field during games might shock you.

This number was zero.

No, I did not bust an ankle or a knee or a collarbone. I just simply “wasn’t good enough” to be put in the game.

And back then I just took this message from my coach without a second thought. I didn’t obsess over the fact that I was putting in twice the amount of time as any other girl on the team; in fact, it made me work harder.

Only now—after placing my dedication into a different sport—do I realize how wrong this was.

Only now am I really appreciating that there has been an organization all along that encourages people to participate no matter what their level. One that includes everyone in the competitions, and where everyone can feel like they contribute to the team’s success.

This organization is NICA, and this sport is mountain biking.

No One Gets Left Behind

I only participated in one NICA race, and every one of the coaches knew my name and cheered me on at the end of the event. Not once did they tell me— or anyone— that they weren’t good enough to participate in the race; they did not punish hard work with time outs.

And this matters. I love NICA’s “no one gets left behind” philosophy and it makes me really happy to see them succeed.

NICA people are good people—and their numbers are growing quickly—but because they are a non-profit, they are having a hard time keeping up.

That’s why this year when I go to Leadville, I’m going to be racing on behalf of NICA. I am also going to be fundraising for them.

And that’s where I need your help.

[And it’s also where I — Fatty — step back into the picture.]

The Contest

Since this contest is happening right before my annual biggest race of the year — The Leadville 100 — and is what The Monster is fundraising for in order to gain entry into the race, I wanted to center the fundraising / contest question around two questions that are the absolute dead center of most of the conversations we are having at my house.

In just a moment, I’ll talk about those questions and how you can help settle them — predictively in one case, and definitively in the other — for us while doing a lot of good for an organization that is making a tremendous difference to a lot of kids in the US.

But first, let’s talk about the prizes you can win by participating.

Thumb IMG 0008 1024

Grand Prize 1:Ultimate Cycling Wardrobe from DNA Cycling

I don’t even know how to describe what a huge fan of DNA Cycling I’ve become. The quality of pretty much everything they make just blows me away.

And for the first grand prize I’m giving away, the CEO of DNA, Joe Sepulveda, is going to give you a call, talk with you about what kind of riding you like to do, where you ride, how you like your gear to fit, get your measurements, and then personally set you up with all the cycling clothes you could possibly need for the kind of riding you do.

Jerseys, socks, shorts, jackets, vests, bibs, knickers, gloves, everything you need for a complete, beautiful cycling wardrobe. 

You’ll note that I’m not getting super specific about exactly what this gear entails. That’s because the ultimate cycling wardrobe would be different for a mountain biker than for a roadie. It would be different for a man than a woman. It would be different for someone who lives in Florida than for someone who lives in Alaska.

But I will tell you this: Joe’s going to open up his candy shop, and you are going to get all the gear you need for the kind of riding you do in the place where you live.

Imagine: a prize that is literally crafted for you. How awesome would that be?

Well, someone will find out.

Grand Prize 2: A Year’s Supply of GU Energy Gel / Roctane

One of the important reasons The Monster is doing so well in this, her first year of racing, is that she’s a serious student. When The Hammer and I give her guidance on endurance racing, she listens and takes us seriously. As a result, she’s managed to leap over a lot of rookie endurance racing mistakes.

In particular, she’s wholeheartedly adopted our race nutrition strategy: A GU energy gel  or GU Roctane energy gel, every half hour. 

Here in the Fatty Family, we’re all very sold on how GU works. And some lucky winner is going to find out for themselves, by getting a committed cyclist’s year’s supply (12 boxes, with 24 gels per box)  of GU / GU Roctane energy gel.


And I will be happy to even provide suggestions on which twelve flavors to get, because I recently ordered twelve boxes of GU / GU Roctane for my own family (of course, for three actively racing cyclists, this won’t last close to a year):

  • Cherry Lime Roctane: This, would be an amazing sherbet flavor and is my second-favorite GU flavor of all time. I love the little punch of tartness the lime gives it.
  • Salted Watermelon: This is The Hammer’s favorite flavor of all time, and my fourth-favorite flavor. Salty is good, and these taste a lot like Jolly Rancher Watermelon candies.
  • Chocolate Coconut Roctane: This is incredible: it tastes just like a Mounds bar. Just like it. It’s the most candy-like flavor of all the GUs. It’s my third-favorite flavor of all time.
  • Cucumber Mint: I was amazed to find that I really love this. It’s mild, it’s different, it’s refreshing. It’s not on my top-five list, but it’s definitely going in a jersey pocket anytime I’m on a four-plus hour ride and at some point am going to need a gel that tastes clean and minty and refreshing.
  • Strawberry-Kiwi Roctane: A classic. 
  • Pineapple Roctane and Lemonade Roctane: I’m always so happy when I pull a yellow GU out of my pocket during a ride, because I know it’s going to be either Pineapple Roctane or Lemonade Roctane. And both are tied for being my fifth-favorite GU flavor. 
  • Sea-Salt Chocolate Roctane and Caramel Macchiato: I am not sure why, but these are my absolute favorite GU flavors when the weather’s cool (below 70 degrees), but I don’t really go for them when the weather’s hot (85+ degrees). I’ve asked other people about this, though, and I’m pretty certain this is a “it’s just me” kind of thing.
  • Big Apple: It’s tart and delicious and perfect. 
  • Vanilla Orange: This is The Hammer’s favorite flavor of all time and is probably my sixth-favorite flavor. Either way, it’s a creamsicle, and there’s nothing bad in the world about it.

Strangely, my favorite GU flavor in the world — Root Beer — is being discontinued, and so is not on this list. But since I still have Cherry Lime, Salted Watermelon, Chocolate Coconut and Cucumber Mint, I’m not too broken up.

The value of this prize? $720.00. That’s a lot of gel, and is guaranteed to be the most useful prize you ever win.


4 First Prizes: GU Stroopwafels

GU has just started shipping GU Energy Stroopwafels, and they are so good (as an important member of the press, I got some before they were released to the public). They come in four fantastic flavors: Caramel Coffee, Salty’s Caramel, Wild Berries, and Salted Chocolate.

These are just amazing — the best thing to eat when you’ve just killed yourself on a big climb, need some calories, and want to reward yourself for the effort with something truly delicious. 

Plus they stay nice and flat in your jersey pocket, helping your figure stay all nice and bulgeless.

Four lucky winners will win a box (16 Stroopwafels per box) of Stroopwafels, in the flavor of your choice.

So if I have done my math correctly — and I have — that’s six extremely awesome prizes you can win in this contest.

And you don’t even know how the contest works yet. So let’s correct this problem right now. And then you can get out your Paypal password (or wallet or whatever) and hopefully win one of those fabulous prizes.

Contest Question 1: What Should Fatty’s Goal At Leadville Be This Year? 

At the end of my race last year — my fastest ever, with a finish time of 8:12 — I vowed to try to finish in 2016 in under eight hours

As I get close to race day, I know that’s unlikely to happen. I’ve needed to emphasize other things: job hunting, interviewing, getting settled in my new employment, and a new constant companion — a chronically painful hernia.

So for me, this year I’m just grateful to TrainerRoad that I’m in any shape at all. That in spite of all this, I am in good enough shape that I can still race.

But the sub-eight-hour dream is out the window for this year. 

Which leaves me in an interesting quandary: what should be my objective in the Leadville 100 this year? I can think of three good possibilities, all of which sound interesting, and could give me a great sense of satisfaction at the end of the race. 

  • Race it as originally planned. I have a beautiful geared hardtail — a Felt Nine FRD frame built up with Enve M 50-Fifty wheels, a Rock Shox RS-1, and a SRAM XX1 drivetrain. It is, I believe, the best no-compromise XC racing hardtail a person could own for the Leadville 100. And I could race it with all my legs, lungs and heart to see if, even in my not-so-great shape, I can still finish in under nine hours. I think maybe I could.
  • Race singlespeed. I love riding and racing singlespeed. And now my lightest, fastest singlespeed — my Stumpjumper singlespeed — has been upgraded with an RS-1 fork (can you tell I’m sold on the RS-1?), making me faster on the downhills than I’ve ever been. Could I win this category again? That of course depends on who else shows up. But I could at least make an attempt at the podium.
  • Be The Hammer’s Domestique. The Hammer is the Leadville 100 women’s singlespeed record holder with a time of 9:50. This year, she hopes to set a new PR, which (unless there’s someone else faster than she is) would also be a new women’s SS record. And if I committed to riding with her, encouraging her and giving her a draft when I could, I think make a difference in her finish time. With my help, I think she could do it in under 9:30, to be honest. And also, we’d be adorable racing our matching singlespeeds.

Which will I do? Well, that will be up to you. How? By voting, of course. Specifically, by voting with your dollars

How? Simple. Below, just specify which you think I should do: race with gears, race singlespeed, or race for The Hammer. Then choose how much you’re willing to donate. The more you donate, the more votes you get (and as you’ll notice, the more you donate, the cheaper each vote is).

And here’s the thing: I hereby commit that, provided we fundraise at least $2500 for NICA here, I will abide by the results and will do as is specified here. As in, I will treat this vote as binding.

OK, let’s do it: 

What Should Fatty Focus on at Leadville?
How Many Votes Do You Want to Place?

Question 2: How Close Will The Hammer’s and Monster’s Finishing Times Be?

There’s a friendly ongoing discussion at our house: how fast is The Monster? She’s  been riding in earnest for less than a year, but has done ridiculously well at each of these races.

  • In her first race (True Grit Epic), The Monster finished just a few minutes behind The Hammer.
  • In her second race (6 Hours of Frog Hollow), The Monster finished ahead of The Hammer.
  • In her third race (Crusher in the Tushar), The Monster finished about an hour behind The Hammer.

Of course, The Hammer is The Hammer, and has not just years of base fitness, but also race savvy and endurance. So I personally think that The Hammer will finish right at an hour faster than The Monster (9:30 vs 10:30).

The Hammer thinks she’ll finish a little further ahead. The Monster thinks they’ll be closer than that.

I’d like you to settle this dispute, by voting below (as with the other contest, the more you donate, the more your vote is worth): do you think The Hammer will be at least an hour faster than The Monster, or will The Monster be less than an hour slower than The Hammer? 

Honestly, I can imagine it going either way. Let’s see how the voting goes…and then we’ll test that whole “wisdom of crowds” thing after the race.

Is Hammer MORE or LESS than 1hr Faster than Monster?
How Many Votes Do You Want to Place?

How Prizes Are Drawn

For every vote you buy, you’ll also get a chance on my magically random spreadsheet. It’s that simple. Then, once this fundraiser is complete, we’ll do random drawings for the total number of chances/votes. No matter which contests you vote in or how you vote, you’ll be eligible to win in all of the prizes.

So: while the voting part is fun, it’s all to help NICA, and no matter what you’ll still have a chance to win. And I will email you when the contest ends, which will be August 8, the first day I’m in Leadville this year.

Updates Soon, and Frequently

I suspect that people will be interested in how the vote is going, long before the results are final. And that’s cool. I will do updates on where the results stand at least once a day, and more often than that when results change dramatically. 

Oh, and finally: yes, I was serious about holding my Rockwell Race Report hostage ’til we hit the $2500 mark. 

Hey, I’ve got to use the leverage I’ve got, right?

Thanks for your donation!

    The Monster is my new favorite FC character!

    Working hard for zero minutes playing time – story of my Football ‘career’.

    I propose a new section dedicated to ‘Monstrous Crashes’- so much beauty and horror all in one spot… it would have to be a hit. :-)

    1.) Badass women cyclists obviously gravitate to you. 2.) No contest, be smart and domestique for the Hammer. It’s the right thing to do, and pays exponential dividends. It’s were my money is going. 3.) Chocolate Coconut Roctane, OMG! 4.) DNA Cyling, the most comfortable kits I own.

  4. Comment by DJ | 07.25.2016 | 3:38 pm

    before I vote, I want to know something about your condition now, as compared to previous years, and if you’ve been able to shed those extra lbs. (watts/kg).

    text or email me the answer.

    the answer will determine my vote, and I’m going to vote BIG.

    one final question: will The Monster be mad (at you) if you are responsible for a bigger Hammer-Monster finish time gap???

    I’ll text you the part of the answer you wanted texted, but as for the second question: The Monster will not be mad at all. She’s just super-stoked that so many people are supporting this thing that got her started in Mountain Biking. – FC

    I think you buried the lead with your post – Root Beer is discontinued!?!?!?!

    Looking forward to casting votes on the rest.

    Sea salt chocolate is my favorite!

    Not only do you have a family of talented cyclists but compelling writers as well.

    I have become as interested in the other racers in your crew as I am in following your events. I’ve been glued to your blog (and now podcasts) for many years.

  8. Comment by Scott | 07.25.2016 | 5:13 pm

    I say be the Domestique it will make for an interesting race report, especially with alternating view points between you and the Hammer’s perception of your domestiquing ability.

  9. Comment by Karen | 07.25.2016 | 8:42 pm

    Now that was fun. Great contest, great cause. Can’t wait to see the results.

  10. Comment by Jeff Dieffenbach | 07.25.2016 | 8:51 pm

    Fatty, I’ve just finished re-reading all of your prior Leadville race reports. Most notably, 2014 stuck with me. Your singlespeed leap-frogging with Hammer and Reba was a dance where you didn’t get to dance together.

    In 2016, dance together.

  11. Comment by AKChick | 07.25.2016 | 11:52 pm

    I’m in for $25. I don’t really care about the prizes. I would have supported The Monster without them. She’s just a super duper rockstar!j

    Also, received my DNA new women’s specific Fatcyclist kit today and it’s JUST SO FREAKING AWESOME! I LOVE IT! It’s raining for the next 3 days so I may have to wait for Friday or Saturday to wear it. Outside anyway. The design and colors are AMAZEBALLS! Have I meantioned that I LOVE IT?! :)

    1. Holding the RRRR hostage is dirty pool.
    2. Monster rocks! NICA rocks!
    3. Domestique was my vote but, now I realize Hammer’s dropping you.
    4. See #1. I am NOT happy.

    Where is the option for you to domestic for the Monster?

  14. Comment by DavidV | 07.26.2016 | 6:52 am

    Can I vote for you being the Monster’s domestique instead?

  15. Comment by Bart the Clydesdale | 07.26.2016 | 7:26 am

    Votes are in.
    Here is hoping for the GU prize, I love all the GU flavors with the exception of all coffee based flavors. I would rather take a hit to the snipe than accidentally ingest a coffee flavored GU during a hot ride.

  16. Comment by MattC | 07.26.2016 | 8:06 am

    I vote that you ride a WBR Buffalo this year! You finish under 9 hours on THAT and you would be DA MAN!

    Just my 2 cents worth.

    Those are amazing bikes, but I have serious doubts whether those coaster brakes would get me down the mountains. – FC

  17. Comment by Corrine | 07.26.2016 | 8:58 am

    Definitely you should be Lisa’s domestique! That’s my vote.

  18. Comment by cyclingjimbo | 07.26.2016 | 9:10 am

    Votes are in:

    One basic tenet is to be sure you take care of yourself, even while taking care of others. My gut reaction is that a single speed ride might be really painful, so I am voting for a geared bike.

    I am also voting that you should help shepherd The Hammer through the course and not try to reach any particular time goals of your own.

    Take it easy (easier?) this year and let your body heal. Then come back next year and hit it hard.

    Good luck to all.

  19. Comment by Jonathan | 07.26.2016 | 9:15 am

    Given the record of van crashing and the ability to forget something so basic as shoes, I image the Hernia flaring up and FC somehow winds up in a body cast. I am not sure why, but I just picture him among those hospitalized in the ending of It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World.

    That’s van almost-crashing I’ll have you know. – FC

  20. Comment by Jeff Dieffenbach | 07.26.2016 | 12:56 pm

    I’m not convinced that domestiquing the Hammer remotely falls into the “taking it easy” category.

    I think you probably have a point. – FC

  21. Comment by Jonathan | 07.26.2016 | 1:03 pm

    Im with Jeff. As soon as Powerline Climb rounds the corner, he will be dropped by both the Hammer and the Monster, only to become The Anchor.

    FC, I only say this out of Hernia experience and seeing the determination in H & M compared to the distractions you have had this year. Not to far from mine in the past year which has caused my bike to miss out on many a lovely day.

  22. Comment by Jason | 07.26.2016 | 1:24 pm

    I raced as a domestique for my girlfriend’s first ever race (73 miles, 8000 ft of climbing gravel/dirt/rock roads) and it was a blast. Have fun and help her get her best time ever!

  23. Comment by Tim | 07.26.2016 | 2:27 pm

    You’re no Queen of Pain, but as the Hammer’s domestique and a hernia, you may get to be at least the Prince of Pain……

  24. Comment by Rob & Joanna Szrama | 07.26.2016 | 2:32 pm

    Why not ride a geared bike so you can better work with the Hammer. You can better be the elusive Nail which the Hammer is chasing?

    That’s a terrific question. If I’m working with gears, I’ll be dropping her in exactly the places I need to pull her. By being on a singlespeed, I can pull at a pace she can hang with.

    Plus, we’ll look ADORABLE riding with our matching kits and bikes.

    Even more plus, my machismo couldn’t handle riding with her and HER being on a singlespeed while I’M on a geared bike. – FC

  25. Comment by PNP | 07.26.2016 | 3:08 pm

    I voted for you to be the Hammer’s domestique, but given the opportunity, I’d have voted for you to get that hernia fixed. I hope that’s on the schedule somewhere.

    Right after the season’s over, assuming I can put up with it that long. – FC

  26. Comment by Kate | 07.26.2016 | 3:37 pm

    Thanks for the update! I’ve been going back to my feed time and time again with the “are we there yet?” excitement of an 8 year old on a road trip.

  27. Comment by NDE | 07.26.2016 | 4:18 pm

    isn’t the hammer being 1 hour faster and the Monster being 1 hour slower the same thing?

    I can see how that is confusing. The choices are:

    - Will the Hammer be MORE than an hour faster than the Monster?
    - Will the Monster be LESS than an hour slower than the Hammer?

    - If The Hammer hits her goal of 9:30 and the Monster gets a 10:35, The Hammer wins.
    - If The Hammer hits her goal of 9:30 and The Monster gets a 10:25, The Monster wins.

    Does that help? – FC

  28. Comment by MattC | 07.26.2016 | 7:26 pm

    Hey Fatty, a serious question if you please…you mentioned you plan on 3 fundraisers this year…can say at this point if one of them will be for WBR? (I’m only asking as I have very limited $, and they are the one charity I save for every year…now that you’ve gotten me hooked on them). If not then I will add my $ to them now while it’s all doubled (the month of July).

    Thanks for your question. The answer is yes. Specifically, here’s what I plan to do this year, fundraiser-wise:

    1. NICA Voting-Style Contest (happening now)
    2. 100 Miles of Nowhere for Camp Kesem (planning now, more info soon)
    3. Grand Slam for WBR (happens in December during fundraising-match period)

  29. Comment by UpTheGrade, SR, CA | 07.26.2016 | 10:30 pm

    I’m all drugged up as I recover from collarbone repair surgery due to falling off my bike. That’s my excuse for totally mixing up Melisa and Lindsay in my mind as I voted, which I just realized as I reread the challenge.

    I still feel that Melisa can stay within an hour of the Hammer, but I hope she enjoys the ride and doesn’t feel pressured to take too many risks – endos can be painful ;-)

  30. Comment by MattC | 07.27.2016 | 7:57 am

    I have to think the Hammer will beat the Monster by a good bit, likely more than an hour (even if you aren’t pacing Hammer). The reason I say this has nothing at all to do with the Monster being an awesome strong biker. It’s simply that younger people aren’t typically as ‘gifted’ for endurance sports (ie: the Grand Tours and such). Younger riders do better at shorter events…and Leadville, while being only 1 day, is a HUGE day. AT ALTITUDE. I think Hammer having ridden Leadville many times will have a huge advantage in her amazing endurance over the Monster in this long and hard of a race. But hey…I could be wrong too…I’m guessing Monster will be motivated by anybody telling her she can’t or won’t beat ‘mom’…who is a pretty amazing athlete…and the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree as they say. That all said, I’d LOVE to see Monster ride in w/ Mom around 9 hours…that would be pretty fantastic!
