Larissa Connors Wins Second Consecutive Leadville 100 Mountain Bike Race

There's nothing quite like the heart of a champion. After shocking the world last year with an incredible maiden championship at the Leadville MTB 100 race in 2017, Larissa Connors returned to Colorado to defend her crown. With a target firmly on her back, Larissa rose to the occasion and rode away from the field, finishing an astonishing 27 minutes ahead of her nearest rival. Larissa opted to ride her trusty Edict mountain bike, aboard which she’s won countless endurance races over the past few seasons. Larissa’s husband, Brendan Connors, is an engineer at Felt Bicycles, and designed the all-new Edict platform. They’re quite the pair, and everyone in the #feltfamily is awed by their accomplishments. Congratulations, Larissa!
