My first guest this week is the incomparable Katie Compton. With too many wins to list here, suffice it to say that she IS the winning-est cyclocross racer EVER! Our fun and lively conversation covers a bit of her history, her training, her philosophy on the sport, and how she manages her health to stay competitive as she approaches 40. We also touch upon the racing she and blind cyclist Klarissa Whitsell did in the paralympics. Guest #2 is Lennard Zinn. His new book – the 6th Edition of Zinn & the Art Of Mountain Bike...

In fact, our interview had to be broken into two parts to cover all the details of our conversation. But what we didn’t talk about on air was the terrifying and life threatening physical issues he was experiencing. Fast forward to 2015 and the now 57 year old has had to make some serious life choices because of his experiences. These issues were highlighted in a recent Velo News article, “Cycling to Extremes – Are endurance athletes hurting their hearts by repeatedly pushing beyond what is normal?” The...

Lennard was on the show back in April, and time ran out before the discussion turned to crank arm length, which is one of his unique specialties. This time around, we...

As Bob Roll put it, back in the 1980s Andy Hampsten “cracked the chest of European road racing and feasted on its heart.” Andy went on to win the Giro d’Italia, and a stage at the TdF, among other accomplishments. These days, he owns Hampsten Cycles with his brother Steve, and he combines his passion for Italian food, wine, and riding as proprietor of Cinghiale Tours. Andy checked in just before getting ready to head over to Italy for the Giro, and his own touring season. After the break and some news, Lennard...
