Diagnosed at the age of 7 months, doctors told his family he probably wouldn’t live much past his mid-twenties. Phil discovered that riding and Snickers kept his blood sugar manageable, along with the proper insulin monitoring and dosing, and knew at an early age that his success as an athlete was something any Type 1 diabetic could aspire to with some guidance. That knowledge has informed every aspect of his life and his outlook about exercise and diet are most enlightening. His goal is to share that outlook and he’s put together quite a repertoire of projects that further that goal. Author and journalist Daniel...

Roland Della Santa. Roland has stuck with his beliefs and ideas about frame building for over 40 years and still produces his classic Della Santa frames in the “Italian” tradition – steel, lugged, and FAST racing machines. We discuss frames, forks, wheels, Roland’s relationship with Greg LeMond, and even our favorite musicians – Frank Zappa and Joe Bonamassa! As for food – what would you expect? Italian in the Tuscany tradition! Roland pulls NO punches about what he believes, how he builds frames, and what he thinks about today’s offerings in the bike biz. In the second half of the show, it’s...

Editor-in-chief of Bicycling Magazine Bill Strickland is my guest and we have a GREAT conversation about a lot of cycling stuff – from his book Ten Points to the state-of-the-magazine. Probably need to have a bunch more of these chats to get the whole picture! Then it’s off to Mallorca, Spain where I catch up with Guy Andrews. The founder of Rouleur Magazine has just launched the definitive book spanning the entire career of Greg LeMond. Yellow Jersey Racer is arguably the “coffee table book” gift for this holiday season. Guy found an amazing array of folks to cover each phase of Greg’s career – beginning in 1977! There are photos and commentary...

Unbeknownst to me, a book was being written that would not only explain in detail who he is, but along with a prominent medical professional, why his career came to an early end. This week, Elsevier Press released The Science of Fitness: Power, Performance, and Endurance, by 3-time Tour de France Champion Greg LeMond and Dr. Mark Hom; and, instead of an interview that rehashes the same questions he has been asked umpteen times, we were able to delve into who Greg LeMond is, what his racing strategies were (and are), and why this book might just be...
