Greg Francis  Living and Training with Hemochromatosis. A genetic mutation of the c282y Gene. Sharing my journey to the 2018 Leadville 100 mtn bike race.

Humbled to have completed the 2018 #leadville100. It was a crazy journey between life and health. Thanks to an awesome supporting crew & great friends, all earning the big buckle! #hemochromatosis #icandohardthings #itzmultisport

King for the day, Ha!...Long awaited trail opening #mtblife #hemochromatosis

Kind of ironic that for all the rocks, roots, twist, turns & other obstacles, we seek solace from the trouble of the world out on the trails. #hemochromatosis #mtnbike

Races the Silver Rush 50 today to get a corral time at Leadville. Tough race, but mission accomplished. Didn’t think that finish line was ever going to come! #hemochromatosis

Had to cut the training ride short due to sore hami, but beautiful ride #indiancreek. Thankful for the great outdoors #hemochromatosis #leadville100

First off, #happyfathersday to all! I wouldn’t be a happy father without the love & support of my family. Thanks for cheering me on yesterday, and for supporting me in all I do. #familiesareforever

Great day of racing yesterday! Awesome to be back, especially surviving in one piece, both bike and body. Even better hanging with the team and life long friends!

She is ready to roll! First race of the season, tomorrow and have the go ahead from the doc to forgo blood donations til after race season. #noexcuses #hemochromatosis

Iron levels finally low enough to get a pass for a few months. Next blood test will help define a lifelong blood draw cadence, but til then, training hard!! #hemochromatosis #leadvilletrail100 #itzmultisport

Picked up my @ltraceseries bike this week! Thanks @bikesource_denver for workin thru #specialized production issues to get me on the trails. Now if the weather and travel would only cooperate! @iamspecialized_mtb #mtblife #hemochromatosisawareness #hemochromatosis

Strength intervals done with the help of @defleppard. #rockinthe80s #itzmultisport #leadville100 #leadvilletrail100

Breakfast cereals are fortified and have high iron. Just may have to give up these all time favs! #hemochromatosis
