Kelsey is the Kim Kardashian of Cycling?!

11/20/2019
Guys calm down, backcountry isn’t suing the podcast…. unfortunately (that free exposure though!). While Clare recovers from not being popular enough for backcountry.com to sue, the seasons change, pumpkin spice comes and is way too soon replaced with gingerbread and eggnog (it’s not even Thanksgiving? Santa go home you’re drunk), and the first whiffs of ski season waft down from the cascades. Mmmmm, the smell of sending and yard sale-ing is so sweet! Speaking of pumpkin spice and everything...

Sadie Samuels Partially Identifies as a Salty Old Man?!
