We’ve had Elden Nelson on the show in the past; but, now he’s got a new gig and he is THE expert in the field. Elden has completed 20 Leadville 100 mountain bike races and now has a new podcast all about the event – how to train for it, how to finish it, surviving at altitude, what to eat, everything-you-need-to-know. The podcast launched on Wednesday and I wanted to be the FIRST to cover the news! Then, after two failed attempts – technical difficulties – I think we nailed the conversation on the third take. Joe Mungo Reed‘s first novel (his first book) is a slam dunk winner! We Begin the Ascent, out June 19th in...

Many of you might remember my conversation with Jackie Crowell back in July of 2014. At the time, she had just given an amazing speech at the Amgen Tour of California and was in treatment for brain cancer. We spoke with her again in May of 2015 and I’ve been following her progress since. She and her now husband Daniel had postponed their wedding until she was given an all-clear by her doctors and she was doing some great things coaching young riders. Now, the doctors have discovered that her brain cancer is back – with a vengeance. As of this week, the tumor that was discovered a...

Allard This week, I had the distinct pleasure of speaking with one of our Olympic track hopefuls (if not shoe-in!) Josh Hartman. He’s only 19 – but, his career is on a trajectory that will add to the gold and silver medals he already has as a national sprint champion. Not all was this rosy though when, in 2013, he had a horrific crash at the Red Hook Criterium. It landed him in a medically induced coma for several weeks followed by a lengthy hospital stay. You can see and hear about this chapter of life at FloBikes.com. Watch the short documentary Scar. After some serious convincing, his parents relented to letting Josh get back on a bike and follow his...
