Young Blood in Ultrarunning

Most 19 year olds are more concerned with finding people to buy beer for them than finding the next ultra to run. On this edition of Elevation Trail, Gary talks with Patrick Caron, a New England kid who would rather be on the trails than go to a party. We’ll find out why he has chosen to run every day, race every weekend, why he didn’t have a high school graduation party, and how sustainable is his race schedule. We’ll also talk about his 14:51 effort at the Ghost Train 100 mile ultra, his second place at the Eastern States 100, why Ian Sharman hasn’t talked to him, and the dangers of running with bacon.

Helen & Stef Wyman Interview

helenstefHelen and Stef Wyman are advocates of cycling, cyclocross, and gender equality in sport. Her list of achievements is impressive, with a Third Place at the World Championships, two European CX championship titles, 9 British national championships, and numerous race wins in World Cup events. More impressive is her work on bringing cyclocross to the masses, running camps, encouraging younger riders, sitting on the UCI Cyclocross Commission, and now having a development team in the NEXT-Wyman project.  It was great checking up with them, hearing about their travels in the US, their frustrations with a slow rate of change, and their hopes for future directions in cyclocross.

We are honored to have them on the show and hope you enjoy it.

guests. We dive into his gritty Leadville 100 mile run, stunning 100 mile mountain bike race, thoughts on doping, and his future, which looks like it will include Gary and I managing Mike’s entry into the Worlds Masters Games in New Zealand next year, representing the elite Elevation Trail Team.

Hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

Elevation Trail Studios World Headquarters

After a six month vacation from producing a show, Gary and Tim return to Elevation Trail with an update on things and delve a bit into what motivates people to do or not do activities in their lives. Really, it’s just another conversation about life in general.

Jam Rags(?) with Rebecca Fahringer

Becca looks nice but she’ll crush you in a race.

Oh, crap, clean up the studio, we have a guest!

Join us on Elevation Trail as we hang out with “faux” Pro cyclist, Rebecca ‘Becca’ Fahringer. We talk about women in sports, women showering, and naked women advertisements. Fun show and learning experience, in general.

When to Retire

rodrigo

Listener, Rodrigo from Germany. Thanks for the support!

Some people quit a sport for no apparent reason and others linger in their sport well beyond their prime. We discuss that topic along with everything from motocross racing to injuries from doing good deeds. We also announce the winners of the hat/beanie giveaways.

Share with your friends (if you don’t like them and want them out of your life).

Holiday Special Show – Lance Armstrong in Ultrarunning

IMG_0995Ho Ho Ho, whatever. Welcome to our annual holiday special Elevation Trail show. So many topics, so little time. Today we rant about holiday trips, Donald Trump spring water, which is specially filtered through his hair, Lance Armstrong in ultrarunning, global climate change, and much more.

Many people have supplies and plans in place in case the world ends. I have a backpack and passport ready in case Trump is elected.

We’re giving away an Elevation Trail trucker hat and two Run Steep, Get High beenie caps. Just comment here about the show and you’re entered for the drawing.

Didn’t really have a photo to go with today’s show, so here are Cooper and Pippit going for a daily ride.

It’s that time of year when nostalgic thoughts creep into our minds. Unfortunately, there’s not a lot of room in our minds, so we need to discuss our strange thoughts in public. Welcome to one of our normal, random conversations.
