We sat down with Jan Favre to talk some more about hardtails, industry fads and his single-speed adventures. Jan felt triggered by the Hardtails episode we recorded with Luise Rohland over the summer and sent in a thoughtful riposte to our conversation. Naturally, rather than letting the DM rot in our inbox, we invited Jan for a recording to elaborate on his message, some of the thinking and rationale behind his arguments and of course, his own riding. As an experienced shop mechanic, he has a great perspective on things like bike geometry, suspension and what really makes a difference out on the trail. Also, in a quest for simplicity, Jan set up his personal bike as a single-speed and it was interesting to hear how his BFeMax is holding up, from general riding at home, to park days with Anna Newkirk, all the way to multi-day adventures exploring the former Iron Curtain along the Bavarian-Czech border with his dad.

Our guest for Episode 23 needs no introduction in the bikepack racing world. Kurt Refsnider is arguably the greatest bikepack racer of all time. He was the first person to ever win the "bikepacking triple crown", winning the Tour Divide in 2011, the Arizona Trail Race in 2018, and the Colorado Trail Race in 2019-- plus, he's earned countless other bikepack racing wins and FKTs. Kurt has also been remarkably active in the bikepacking community. He's the owner and head coach for UltraMTB ( www.ultramtb.net), co-founder the bikepacking advocacy organization Bikepacking Roots (www.bikepackingroots.org), and has recently become much more involved with the climate activist organization Protect Our Winters (protectourwinters.org).

In 2006 Goat and two friends set out to ride mountain bikes from Alaska to Tierra del Fuego, the southernmost tip of South America, and after three and a half years of travel, the trio completed the mother of all bikepacking trips. Riding the Spine is just one of many adventures Goat has experienced over the years, including living in a tree house and building and working on countless bikes. In this episode we ask: How did you upbringing influence your adventure-based lifestyle? How did you get into cycling, and particularly long-distance riding? What was it like living in a treehouse for 4 years during college? How did the idea of Riding the Spine come about? Who was in the group? What was your bike setup at the start, and how did it evolve during the ride? Why did you and the crew get arrested in Arizona? Which sections were your favorites to ride? Have you been on any bike adventures since the trip? Do you have any planned for the future?

I've long been the introverted, do-it-myself type. I like riding long miles alone, contemplating in silence. One might think these are ideal traits for a bikepacking racer.And they probably are. But my recent finish of my first ever bikepacking race, the Smoke N Fire 400, had almost nothing to do with being alone, and everything to do with a community.A community of women to be exact: Idaho Women's Bikepacking. Founded by Laura Heiner, a long-time racer and multi-time finisher of the SNF 400, who was frustrated with the lack of women racing these events, the group taught me (and a lot of other women) how to bikepack.Full Story: https://www.femmecyclist.com/smoke-n-fire-400/Support the show

Scott Morris is a self-described “lifelong mountain biker, trail mapper and programmer.” He's the creator of Track Leaders, a live tracking website for bikepacking races, and TopoFusion mapping software. In this episode we ask: How did first make the connection between mountain biking and computer programming? Why did you and your brother decide to create TopoFusion? Have there been growing pains as bikepacking races like the Arizona Trail Race become more popular? Will some of the unofficial races need to become more official and organized as they get larger? Are you able to keep the list of ultra endurance records for races like the Tour Divide and Huracan 300 up to date? Do you think there's a value in keeping official records for races like this, and for FKTs? What are the challenges involved in maintaining an official list like this? What led you to create Track Leaders, and how does it work? Are SPOT devices still the best way to track outdoor races? Do you see other devices like smartphones becoming viable for this anytime soon? As a programmer, how do you account for GPS data accuracy when tracking races? Is it easy for someone to cheat? Why is elevation data so notoriously difficult to track accurately with a GPS? When did you fully commit to the digital nomad lifestyle? How'd you finally make the jump? Do you have any tips for going full nomad? When you go for a ride in a new place, do you rely on GPS entirely or do you also pack a paper map? What are you planning for your next adventure?

Bikepacking ist Trend: Veloabenteuer mit leichtem Gepäck. Auch Tobias Müller geht auf grosse Tour. Sein Plan: vom Bodensee zum Genfersee, 800 Kilometer in acht Tagen. Unterstützung erhält er von der Wissenschaft. Doch schon bald sind die schönen Pläne trotz Koffein und Wattmessung Makulatur. Fahren in grünen Bereich Tobias Müller erlebt in den Wochen vor der Tour, was wohl so viele kennen: Die Trainingskilometer, die man sich vornimmt, kann man nicht annähernd abstrampeln. Wie schafft man trotzdem die Fahrradtour, auch ohne dem Hammermann zu begegnen? Der Sportmediziner Patrick Noack hat Tobias Müller durchgecheckt und ihm genaue Leitlinien mitgeben können für seine Puls- und Wattbereiche. Er gibt aber auch Ratschläge, wie man ohne Watt- oder Pulsmessung fahren muss, damit man eine Tour schafft – egal, wie wenig Trainingskilometer man in den Beinen hat. Koffein, das legale Doping Kaffee ist ein Lieblingsgetränk unter Radfahrern. Denn: Koffein gilt als Leistungs-Booster. Doch neueste Erkenntnisse zeigen: Nicht alle Menschen profitieren davon. Es kann gar sein, dass Koffein die Leistung reduziert. Tobias Müller macht den Test: Ist er, der keinen Kaffee mag, ein Koffeintyp oder nicht? Und wieviel würde ihm Koffein bringen? Die Ergebnisse erstaunen. Nicht nur die Ausdauerleistung auf dem Rad hat sich verändert mit Koffein – auch seine Handkraft. Mit dem Blutzuckersensor gegen den Hungerast? Eigentlich sind sie ein wichtiges Hilfsmittel für Diabetespatienten: Die Blutzuckersensoren. Doch nun entdecken sie Sportler wie der Schweizer Radprofi Stefan Küng oder der Ironman-Weltmeister Kristian Blummenfelt. Sinkt der Blutzucker, soll man essen. Funktioniert das? Ist der Sensor der vielgepriesene Gamechanger? Tobias Müller testet, ob er tatsächlich den gefürchteten Hungerast verhindern kann. So viel sei verraten: Ob man Hobbyfahrer oder Radprofi ist, macht einen immensen Unterschied.

This week we are chatting with bikepacking champion, extraordinary endurance athlete, and all around awesome human being Alexandera Houchin! Alexandera has had an inspiring athletic journey culminating in dominant performances at the Tour Divide, Colorado Trail Race, amongst many other long distance bike races. She rides her single speed bike for days and days rocking steel toed boots, fixes bikes with sporks, and continues to smile and laugh despite any obstacle thrown her way. More importantly, she's a super down to earth, resilient, positive person who was an absolute joy to chat with! I'm seriously in awe of her accomplishments and her humbleness. In this episode we chat all about her recent record setting ride on the 486 mile Colorado Trail, her journey from back of the pack in her very first race to becoming the first woman to win back to back Tour Divides (a 2,745 mile race from Canada to Mexico), and the lessons she has learned along the way. This one was one of my favorite episodes of the show so far! My mind is blown by the adventures Alexandera has had and her evolution as an athlete. I'm so honored she would spend some time to chat and felt like her perspective on endurance sports was incredibly relatable. I hope she inspires all of you to take on some major challenges in 2020!

Abby in her own words:   “Growing up, the outdoors wasn't a place I spent much time, unless you count doing all nighters in the park guzzling Bacardi Breezers and shivering into my Jane Norman parka as a teenager.   It wasn't a place I felt I belonged. I hated exercise and actively avoided it at all costs, so much so, I'd hide in the showers to bunk PE lessons.   During lockdown, my dad gave me his 23 year old mountain bike and I set myself a challenge to cycle the distance from John O' Groats to Lands End around my hometown to keep myself from melting into the sofa.   I LOVED it! I felt strong and alive as I whooshed through the isolated streets. Is this what it felt like to enjoy exercise? Had I finally found 'my sport'? 300 miles in, I discovered an enormous Ovarian Tumour.    2 weeks later I was having surgery and my virtual cycle adventure was paused.   The tumour turned out to be a rare form of Ovarian Cancer. I was lucky, it hadn't spread to other organs which meant surgery was all I needed, however, I discovered the dire stats surrounding Ovarian Cancer and feeling lucky to be alive, I wanted to do something to raise awareness and vital funds for the disease.   I decided to cycle John O' Groats to Lands End for real, but this time, I'd make it as fun and spicy as possible. I strapped my gear to the bike and headed for an off road route following GB Divide and Great North Trail. I'd be camping most nights and carrying everything I needed.   I didn't train, I didn't even cycle much before I left, I just had blind faith that if I pedalled one foot at a time I'd eventually get there.”   ***   New episodes of the Tough Girl Podcast go live every Tuesday at 7am UK time - Hit the subscribe button so you don't miss out.    You can support the mission to increase the amount of female role models in the media.

Racing the EWS for the first time is a daunting prospect, but Eric Olsen decided to spice things up by bike touring between the first three rounds to boot. So right after his return from Europe, we sat down with Eric to talk about where the idea came from and what his goals were for the trip; how things went, including encountering golf-ball-sized hail & (almost) running over a bunch of schoolchildren; raising money for World Bicycle Relief & the idea of bikes as transportation; how his fellow racers reacted; his company, Jank Components; and a whole lot more.TOPICS & TIMES:Tour de EWS inspiration (3:25)Goals for the trip (6:01)Route & itinerary (9:53)Golf-ball-sized hail & other memorable moments (14:50)People's reactions (18:20)Packing a bike & gear (25:48)Racing after bike touring (33:37)EWS prep & track walks (35:45)Running over schoolchildren (37:37)Race support & self-sufficiency (43:13)European bike touring culture (44:43)World Bicycle Relief fundraiser (46:56)Lessons learned & teasers for the future (48:50)Jank Components (54:19)Eric's Big Idea (57:25)RELATED LINKS:Tour de EWS BlogBecome a Blister MemberBlister LabsThis Week's Gear GiveawayBlister Mountain Bike Buyer's GuideOUR OTHER PODCASTSOff The CouchGEAR:30Blister Podcast See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
