Stage 7 – Eating
In this episode, Niel and Robbie talk about one of their favourite things, eating. What they eat, how often they eat, what’s their favourite Haribo.
Also they talk Tour Divide, GBDURO, Trans Alba and the North Cape Tarifa race
Plus, Niel gets stuff wrong. A joule is a force of 1N applied over a distance of 1M. He was actually explaining the definition of a kilocalorie (energy to raise 1l of water 1c). Still both definitions of energy though. And it’s efficiency and maximal oxygen uptake that indicate potential performance, although it is believed that there is an inverse relationship between VO2max and efficency (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12471319)

Great interview with Julie
Hits the spot!
Loving the podcast. Listened to the latest episode on 2020 plans last night, kept me focused and entertained on the way up Alpe du Zwift! Keep the episodes coming!
Makes me want to ride more
Love this podcast by the boys! They are very different people with very different ways to doing essentially achieve the same goal. Robbie is a laid back “take it how it comes” kind of a guy, like most talented youngsters. And Niel has a more methodical approach to how it all works together. If you’ve ever thought about riding beyond and then some, give it a good listen.
