    Episode 132: Matej Mohoric -- UCI Gravel World Champion, TdF Stage winner (x3), Coming to Unbound!

    Episode 132: Matej Mohoric -- UCI Gravel World Champion, TdF Stage winner (x3), Coming to Unbound!

    There are certain people to watch for the win on any UCI road race start line and Matej Mohoric is certainly among them. He's won the road world championships as a junior and then u-23 rider, he's won three stages of the Tour de France, plus one stages each in the Giro and Vuelta. He tallied a monument, dramatically winning Milan-San Remo, dramatically in the first known case of a race win on a dropper seatpost. Last fall he took home the rainbow jersey in the UCI Gravel World Championship and this weekend he will race his second ever gravel race at Unbound.
    Matej is a former teammate of mine and I loved talking to this young whippersnapper a decade ago with a new fresh perspective to cycling. He's always been wildly curious and brought a freshness to cycling well ahead of his time.
    And if you haven't seen his post Tour de France stage win interview, it's the kind of thing that will melt your heart. Watch that here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pjTROQR9pHQ

    Episode 131: Geerike "Gee" Schreurs -- Pro Soigneur Turned Pro Cyclist

    Episode 131: Geerike "Gee" Schreurs -- Pro Soigneur Turned Pro Cyclist

    Many people who end up among the infrastructure of cycling begin as cyclists themselves. If they make it to the professional ranks, they often segue to professional cycling as mechanics, team directors, team managers, or soigneurs. It's rare that the timetable is reverse and they go from a professional soigneur to a professional cyclist, but that's exactly the scenario which "Gee" has experienced.
    Now one of the fastest women in gravel, Gee raced under the SD Works banner and has taken wins and podiums in UCI races and... well, quite frankly most of the gravel events she's raced. She podiumed at the Traka 360 this year, has bounced around between Europe and the United States this spring, and that allowed this meet up in Emporia, Kansas one week away from Unbound.

    Episode 130: Christopher Blevins -- Olympic Mountain Biker

    Episode 130: Christopher Blevins -- Olympic Mountain Biker

    Christopher Blevins is on a tear. Winning the opening round of the UCI cross-country mountain bike race in Brazil here in 2024, he finished with the silver medal the next week in round two. Wearing the stars and stripes as the reigning US national champion, Chris has the Olympics high on his mind this summer going into Paris.
    From his early days on the BMX bike to showing stellar results on both the road and mountain bike in the U23 ranks, Christopher had to make a big decision going into the last Olympic cycle heading into Tokyo. We'll talk about that decision and how it's paid dividends since then.
    In addition to being extraordinarily fast on all things two-wheels, he's also a very fun, engaging, creative person. We'll talk about Stilspoke, an outlet for community building and storytelling, which is just launching now! Check that out at www.stilspoke.com
    You can follow all of his adventures at @christopherblevs

Great conversational interviews

Top tier show. Great work - looking forward to all of the new episodes

Just discovered “King of the Ride” - Great pod

I especially enjoyed Ted’s interviews with Derek Teen (I actually joined Dialed Health based on the interview) and Alexy Vermeulen. Alexy’s commitment to service is something we should all cultivate.

Great to hear Derek Teel

I always listen to King of the Ride and love the interviews, but this one was special. I “discovered “ Derek Teel on a podcast just before his accident and immediately added his content. I was horrified with his accident, along with everyone else he had touched. Thank you Ted for having Derek on so we could hear how he’s doing.
