Deaks!

Just listened to your chat with Ben. Loved it. So good to hear him speak about his time as a marine and how he’s used the lessons he learned to help him forge his path outside on civi street. His attitude is spot on and so good to hear. 🤙🏻🤙🏻🤙🏻

UK Mountainbiker ,

Great podcast. The insider view.

Needles’ experience allows for a very well informed approach to his guests. Excellent.
How about a Chris Porter Geometron Bike’s / Mojo Rising interview Andrew? His contributions to bike tech, especially geometry have been massive.

Rich the racer ,

Andrew loves a tough question

Great listen Andrew likes to get down to business with every guest.
