Show #336 – February 25, 2016

Guests: Mike Deme; Mike Sayers

This week we visit with two Mikes – one in Montana; the other in California.

Out in Missoula, Mike Deme, who has been with us on the program in the past, talks with us about the goings on of Adventure Cycling Association. Mike is the head of all publications and gives us good news about the Association’s continued growth on many levels – subscriptions, membership, projects, and more.

When many cycling related organizations are floundering, Mike tells us why the news is so positive with Adventure Cycling and what the future holds.

Then, it’s off to Sacramento where Mike Sayers has come home after a stellar career in the professional side of our sport.  He rode for Team BMC, became the first American Director Sportif of a major team (BMC), ran the men’s road team for USA Cycling, took two teams to the Olympics, and now has come full circle to report on the sport.  As the “Mike” half of the “Inside Line with Mike and Dave“, he and Dave Towle offer up a podcast exploring the racing end of the sport with riders, coaches, and more.

2-Mike’s Up!



Show #281 – January 16, 2016

Guest: Race Announcer Extraordinaire Dave Towle

Who is Dave Towle? (That’s TOW-le now tow-EL)

He’s an extraordinary race announcer, a super cool guy, and knows more about modern day cycling than many of us have forgotten.

What is so cool about Dave is his love of the work that he does.  And, he’s got “Towle-isms” such as: “Yes folks he looks skinny but in an hour when the race gets going, this guy will be like a cocktail napkin with an outboard motor attached!”

My conversation with Dave covers the gamut from his early days in Colorado to his… current days in Colorado!

He is not much of a self-aggrandizer (that’s my new $.25 word!) so I had to dig deep to find a good article about him; this one should suffice!

I don’t want to give too much away here because the conversation is fun, interesting, and informative – and it has some pretty nice continuity!

This is the time we also start to remind you that WJCU’s annual “Radiothon” will take place next month.  Get your checkbook or credit card ready! We’ll have more soon.
