This is the first in a special series of OFF BIKE podcasts that will serve as an extra content stream to give you updates, news and interviews with industry leaders.
Then we go and meet Davids’s coach Marti Castello who puts David’s fitness to the test. We talk about how to set your baseline for your time travel challenge. It turns out that it is all about power and that David is actually not that unfit….

David and Mikkel’s interviews with Sir Paul Smith and Tim Marlow are sensational. Each interview is perfectly wrapped in fashion and design dipped in cycling. Fantastic perspectives on cycling from outside the peloton with thought provoking dialog from experience within. Very interesting to learn how both Sir Paul and Tim are both all-arounders in their own professions. Looking forward for to more of the same in future podcasts. Chapeau!
