August 9, 2012, Leadville, CO — Libertarian Party presidential nominee Gary Johnson will take a brief break from the campaign trail on Saturday, August 11, to tackle another grueling race: the Leadville 100 mountain bike race in Colorado.

An accomplished cyclist and outdoorsman, Gov. Johnson will participate in the high-altitude race for the ninth time since 2002.
