    Flamingo Racer with Madison Kelly

    Flamingo Racer with Madison Kelly

    Time away from commuting & office jobs has given some of us more time to think and an opportunity to be more introspective. We thought we’d use that time to talk with Madison Kelly of CWA Racing p/b Trek about her earliest memories of bike racing and what motivates her time and again to the pointy end of the peloton. We also ask what is it that defines success in racing, and it isn’t always finishing on the podium.

    Our Criterium Nation

    As Steve Cullen of ButcherBox eloquently put it in Ep. 21, criteriums are America, they are the ultimate test of racers, machines, and teams. They are also a style of racing that lends well toward cycling media and with a huge fan engagement at the event and remotely, the crit could possibly be the way forward for road racing.

    The Golden Girl

    The 2020 season has been interrupted, but it doesn’t mean that cycling didn’t happen in 2020. Just ask Lily Williams of Rally Cycling and Team USA. She earned her rainbow stripes in the team pursuit in Berlin. Alone that is worth the story; but there is way more to Lily than just being a world champion. In this episode we talk about what it’s like to be an Olympic hopeful, her rise in cycling and how it took a total burnout in her prior life in track to discovery the simple joys of just being on a bik

    Behind the Lens

    First Aired in The Parts Bin.

    Slowing down is fundamentally antithetical to bike racing. When you live at Mach 12 with your hair on fire, you miss details. That's why photography is important, it allows us to freeze time, and embrace all within it, the good, the bad, triumphs, and failures.

    The guest on today's show, Bruce Buckley, is a photographer who specializes in capturing two-wheeled accomplishments. In this episode we explore the how, why, and the details of capturing the fastest paced action.
