S2E26: Riding It Blind

10/18/2019
More
Chris Smith raced Leadville for the first time this year. It was a celebration of strength, willpower, and independence...because he raced it after losing seventy pounds, and ten years after being declared legally blind. Riding for the Challenged Athletes Foundation, Chris has a remarkable story to tell. We guarantee you'll be inspired by his 2019 Leadville 100 race report.

9/2/2019

This podcast spends a ton of time talking about the Leadville 100 Mountain bike race, but have you ever considered the RUNNING version of the Leadville 100? In this episode, Fatty and Hottie talk with Lisa, a 15X finisher of the LT100MTB, about her first attempt at doing the LT100 run. It's an inspiring and personal story, but you'll have to decide for yourself whether it makes you want to try...or to avoid...this event.

S2B1: Nate Whitman -- The Fastest Guy You've Never Heard Of

8/2/2019
More
We try to fit everything into our regular episodes, but the interview in this episode was so good, so informative, and — to be honest — so long that it has to stand on its own. (Actually it's not that long … just a bit much to squeeze into our normal shows with all the other stuff we have going on.) Nate Whitman is a name rarely mentioned when discussing the front of the race at the Leadville 100. But he should be, because he has been at the front — a number of times. He has four top-tens...

S2E21: Fatty & Hottie Have a Crew Meeting

7/29/2019
More
If you’ve got a crew — and most racers do — you really want to make sure you’re all on the same page. S1E8 & S1E9 of this podcast were all about creating and executing your crew plan. This year, though, Hottie's crewing for Fatty, and so we're having a little meeting on this show — like the one every racer and crew should have. We’ve put together a shared google doc with Fatty's projected splits, everything he wants at each crew station, and a running to-do, to-buy, to-ask, and to-remember...

S2E20: Dealing With Your Demons

7/22/2019
More
Sometime during the Leadville 100, you're going to suffer. You're going to wonder why you made this ridiculous decision to go do this obscenely difficult race. You could have stayed home. You could have been relaxing. Instead, you're doing this STUPID RACE. Yeah, this is the episode about confronting the inevitable demons. But we've also got great info on taking care of flats fast, strategies for eating as you're traveling to Leadville (so you don't wind up sick on race day), and drive...

7/17/2019

There's no arguing that your Leadville 100 success depends on hard work, skill, nutrition, and preparation. But this episode, we talk with the genius engineer / CEO of Silca — Josh Poertner — about getting free speed on the course. This is a great interview with lots of practical advice from the guy World Tour Pro teams go to when they want to get faster.

Fatty's in Leadville to support his wife as she races the Leadville Trail Marathon. While there, he recon'd the newly-graded Powerline, giving real-time analysis (i.e., he strapped a mic to his chest and talked while riding up the climb) of what this course change means to racers, both on the way up and down. Is an impossible climb now easy? What about the descent? All this, plus cramps talk with Roxanne Vogel and bike cleaning techniques with Ryan Morse. THANKS TO OUR SPONSORS Presenting...

S2E14: New Bike Day!

6/10/2019

Fatty just built up his Leadville 100 race bike (which is also his Silver Rush and Crusher in the Tushars race bike). He's stoked beyond belief and can't help but deep-dive on every little part of his new dream machine. The fact that Fatty eats, sleeps, and dreams this race probably means that the decisions he's made for his bike might be interesting to other endurance racers (like you!) too. This episode isn't all boasting about bikes, though. Our nutrition expert gives out fantastic...

The Leadville 100 is a race that appeals to bike nerds (admit it, you're one of them), people who love to monitor their effort as we train and race. So in this episode we talk with Kenny Carlson, a senior team leader in Garmin's Fitness software engineering group. No matter what device you train with, you'll find lots of good race-day info here. We catch up with our nutrition expert, Roxanne Vogel, talking about what supplements you should check out, and which you might be better off...

Jonathan Lee of TrainerRoad is back with a breakdown on your upcoming training block...which he says should be the hardest 3 weeks of your entire Leadville preparation.

In this episode, our special guest is Floyd Landis. Floyd’s of Leadville is our title sponsor and we’ve been talking a lot about their products, but we wanted to have Floyd on the show to break down how his company came to be and how we can use CBD to make us better Leadville racers. We spend a fair amount of time digging into a question Ron Henion posted on the FB Leadville 100 Participants group that got a lot of interest: What are some things y’all use/d to stay mentally grounded during...

Larissa Connors is an incredibly fast, fun, and joyful racer...and quite possibly the most entertaining LT100 champion Hottie and Fatty have ever interviewed. Also, Hottie's back from Sea Otter and we talk about what what felt like the star of the show: the Niner MCR. Will this be the first production drop-bar bike to have mass LT100 appeal?
