Changing tack for a moment...

There are some entertaining chapters from the State Bicycle series
Riding Fixed, Up Mountains, with Pros.

About the Series: "Riding Fixed, Up Mountains, With Pros."  The concept is simple, we wanted to get to know our favorite Pro cyclists and what better way to conduct a natural interview than on the bike, taking them out of their comfort zone just a bit by doing in with NO GEARS (and no brakes sometimes).

I'll offer some of my personal favorites.  :)

Ep. 4 Zion National Park, UT w/ TJ Eisenhart

Episode 4, takes us through the majestic Zion National Park in Southern Utah with Pro Cyclist TJ Eisenhart.  The up-and-comer, US Based pro (Holowesko Citadel Team) TJ, at only age 23, has already made quite the name for himself with top finishes at Redlands, Colorado Classic, and Tour of the Gila. Known for his artistic flair, free-spirit, and unique style, TJ Eisenhart shares his philosophy on life, cycling, lingo, and being chill.

From very impressive fixed-gear riding on the descent from host, Scott Piercefield.  :cool

Ep. 7 Ward, CO w/ Toms Skujiņš

In Episode 7 we meet up with Toms Skujins less than 1 week removed from his stellar 2018 cycling season which saw a King of the Mountains Jersey in Tour of California and the Tour De France, a national TT championship (Latvia), and multiple stages won around the world. Toms is a favorite within the peloton for his great sense of humor and a favorite with race fans for his resilience and aggressiveness on the bike. We chat with Toms about his homeland Latvia, living in Colorado, bike racing, and of course his love of potatoes.
