Big Lead Pipes

Big Lead Pipes is the name of the mountain bike team I race with in 12 and 24-hour endurance races. The three founding members are:

  • Jon McCune
  • Andy Wulfkuhle
  • Josh Mullen


In 1998 and 1999, we raced the 24 Hours of Canaan with Mike Wier. In 2000, the race moved to Snowshoe, WV and its name changed to the 24 Hours of Snowshoe. We raced 4 man sport with Darin Shriver and got 10th place.


Last year Andy and I raced the 24 Hours of Snowshoe on a two-man Duo-Pro team. We placed 4th, only 1 spot away from the money!


Andy was unable to race since he was doing a multi-staged road race in New England. Brett Gullborg took Andy’s place. Dave Hurley was our fourth man. We raced 4 man expert, even though two of our team members had never raced before. We had no business being in expert, but we had a lot of fun anyways. Looking at the results, we would have placed 94th in 4 man sport. I think Dave will be back next year, and I think we’ll place well in expert.
