On this month's podcast we chat with USA Cycling's VP of National Events, Micah Rice, on USAC's rationale for enforcement of UCI article 1.2.019, what it means for US racing, and what separates USAC from other event permiting organizations. We also talk about USAC's efforts on cycling development and doping. If you're a cycling fan and either love or hate USAC, you won't want to miss this interview.*
Also on the podcast we discuss the kick off to the XTerra season, why I still think XTerra's idea combining NE and Atlantic regions sucks, is incredibly short-sighted, and smacks of USAC's SoP, as well as how you can apply my experience to your training!
Finally, we have been working through a HUGE back log of product reviews, so this month we're featuring THREE great products, my final impressions of the Stan's No Tubes Alpha 340 team wheelset, Sidi Wire shoes, and the long overdue review of Bobby McGee's Run workouts for runners and triathletes running book. We will also be posting full written reviews of each of these and more throughout the week. So sit back and jack in!
*Note: due to the time constraints of posting this podcast and the length of the interview, we have not booked the show as thoroughly as usual. Your playback position will be remembered, and there are basic chapters set up.
