WarriorTalk: Dave’s Race Across the Sky – Lessons in Enterprise from the Leadville 100

On August 11th, Dave competed in the Leadville 100 mountain bike race.  It is called the “Race Across the Sky” because it is held in the Rocky Mountains.  It starts at 10,152 feet and it goes up 12,505.

In this Warrior Talk podcast, Dave tells what it was like to ride in this amazing event, how he did and what he learned. It’s a compelling story of challenge, determination and self-understanding.

The Leadville 100 is also a wonderful lesson in entrepreneurial success. From its founding by Ken Glouber in the 1980s to its reinvention by Bahram Akradi in 2010, the event is a role model for business success.

In this 20 minute podcast, Dave shares with us the entrepreneurial lessons he learned and the ideas we can use.

  1. Great talks Dave! You are on a very cool journey! I recently completed my book titled My 1 Amazing Life and I’d love for you and Laurie to check it out and give me some feedback on if you think it fits with what you are doing – it’s all about mindset – somewhat like Quantum Leap – and yet quite different. I’m planning on teaching the course based on the book beginning 2013. Let me know if you have time.
