Informative and relevant

This is a great training oriented cycling podcast. I appreciate having coaches that race different disciplines and the perspective they offer. I like the more recent short episodes but think when we get into race season it’s fun to hear updates on host races, results, etc.

Informative coaching podcast

I appreciate how the coaches try relate their personal training experiences, how it worked for them, and why they would recommend it to athletes they coach.
Being able to email questions and listen to the coaches go through their thought process on why they would recommend a particular course of action, has a lot of value for me.
