BEST PODCAST HANDS DOWN

Each day I go into work and put this podcast on it feels like I’m sitting in a room with them sipping coffee and enjoying an in-depth convo. Thank you for providing info on how to be a better cyclist and triathlete!

Free coaching and bonus entertainment

What a treat that TR provides this podcast for free. Every week, I get to listen to kindred spirits who share my passion for endurance sports and devote their professional lives to figuring out how we can all get faster, ride pain free and safely, and enjoy a balanced life.

From podcast to marketing gimmick

Have listened for the past year and found that initially they felt full of great info and interesting variety of interviewees. Lately it’s become just packed full of TR flogging and answering customer questions. Could save me 15-20min of skipping if they just flushed out FAQs and maybe hired some more support staff.
