Hosted by retired pro-cyclists Svein Tuft and Ryan Anderson, Back on the Bus represents an easy-going environment of interviews just as you could have found us talking on the way to and from races in the back of our cycling team bus. We will have a wide range of guests on the show and everyone will have been influenced by a bike in one way or another.
We have a different show for you this week! We just finished up a three-day gravel bikepacking trip from Gold Bridge, BC. It was a wild trip with lots of great stories that we share in this episode as we sat down with the whole crew: Rob Britton, Jamie Sparling and Taylor Little. We hope you enjoy it!
What a great chat we had with our man Hugo Houle. Hugo made a big impression on both Randy and me back in 2011 when he was 20 years old as he had a level of professionalism that stood out for someone of that age. We always knew he would make it to the world tour but he has become such an amazing rider in the super domestique role. He's found his niche in the sport and is one of the best in the business at helping others win. In our discussion, Hugo describes his progression over the years and the discipline and long-term outlook it takes to make it to the top level of the sport. There are some real gems in here for some of our younger riders to take in. We hope you enjoy this one!
Mike Woods sits down with us this week after a busy month! Mike has some great stories to tell and after reflecting on the episode it's amazing to hear about the path he took to get to where he is now. He could have easily packed it in after any of his crazy setbacks but kept getting back up and now he is one of the best road cyclists in the world! We hope you enjoy it! We had some recording issues with this one (but it doesn’t affect the stories!) - after all, we are just a few guys recording in backyards in different parts of the world.
Back at it from a July break
In this episode, we recap what we got up to in July. One of the highlights was our bike packing trip on the sunshine coast over to Vancouver Island with a good crew and some funny stories. Hope you enjoy it!
This week we had the chance to sit down with Alison after a day out on the bike together. Alison is currently racing in the Women's World Tour for Liv Racing. She shares some of her experiences from racing her way into the World Tour and the balanced outlook on life that she has. She shares some great insight into the women's peloton, we hope you enjoy!
We got Mitch on the show today, a pro-cyclist with EF education nippo. He has his own podcast called 'Life in the peloton' which was one of the first cycling-based podcasts; Mitch was a trailblazer for cycling podcasts at the time. We talk about a lot of things from his early years in Europe to what could be next and all the rest! We hope you enjoy it!
