Garry Millburn Interview – Conquering Near Fatal Accident

2011

2011

World class cyclist, Garry Millburn, joins us today on Elevation Trail. He’s currently on a world tour with his new wife, Fiona, visiting beautiful areas while racing bikes. Four years ago he was involved in a head on collision with a car that nearly took his life and left him with a couple years of rehab. Now he’s back pushing the limits in races and riding.

Gary and I also talk a bit about PEDs in sports and his recent (very neat) videocast discussion on the same topic.

Thanks for listening.

Learn more about Anton Krupicka than any previous interview. Listen in with us as we invite Anton Krupicka into our little studio at Elevation Trail. We talk ultra, trail, sponsors, validity in sport, training, and much more. Tony finds out I’ve been stalking him for nine years, calls me a conspiracy theorist, and Gary pushes Tony to start a book. It’s both your typical Elevation Trail show and one of the most unique. Check it out and share it with your friends.
