She and Levi Leipheimer (her ex-husband) run the Levi’s Gran Fondo from which funds are distributed to several at-risk youth organizations. In addition, Odessa, who loves animals, has recently returned from China in a effort to both stop and rescue dogs from the horrific and sickening Yulin Dog Festival held each June. Please listen to this show knowing that it is a disturbing topic; and, a story that needs telling. You can help Odessa rescue and treat these dogs at her crowdfunding site.

I have a lengthy conversation with the husband and wife coaching team of Braveheart Coaching, Simon Marshall and Leslie Paterson. I’m not sure it gets more qualified than these two when it comes to credentials and success. Their new book, The Brave Athlete – with the sub-title “calm the f**k down and rise to the occasion“, may sound a bit cheeky, but it conveys 320+ pages of solid information and advice in how to calm your “chimp brain”, balance...

I think you will find that the answer is not at all ambiguous. This week, we take an in-depth view of climate, as seen from the seat of a bicycle, when I speak with Dr. David Goodrich. His new book, A Hole in the Wind, published by Pegasus Books on June 6th, is a detailed account of his journeys across the U.S. on his trusty Trek 520. Along the way, Dave talks to us and relays his conversations and observations about history, climate, and how we do or do not account for the variations that seem to be heading in a direction that could eventually lead to no return. Dave worked at NOAA (the National Oceanic and...

We begin on a somber note as we remember the Aexon Hagens Berman press officer, Sean Weide, who passed away unexpectedly at the age of 49 at his home in Omaha, Nebraska this week. Sean was only 49 and one of those 24/7 people who worked behind the scenes as the conduit between the riders and their teams and the press. Caley wrote a great tribute to him on the VeloNews.com site this week; and, the stories about Sean keep rolling in. Then, we head over to France where Peter Cossins, who lives within a few miles of the 2017 Stage 13 TdF event will be ridden this year, has written a new book titled “The First Tour de France....
