In today's episode we are going behind the scenes at Magura and finding out a bit more about the company and what they are up to. Hear about how they began their relationship with Loic Bruni and how they worked together on the design of his brake lever. We also chat about their work with Danny Macaskill and Danny Hart too. Find out about the thinking behind some of their design choices, like why they only make organic pads and why bigger discs aren't always better. Find out why Magura think that one brake doesn't suit everyone and how they solve that with numerous options for performance, ergonomics and aesthetics. They also offer some tips on how to keep your brakes functioning at their best. It's clear that Magura think a little differently than other brake manufacturers and it was really interesting to find out more. So sit back, hit play and listen to this episode with Dominik and Tibor from Magura. You can find out more about Magura over at magura.com. Head to their YouTube Channel for lots of in-depth info and give them a follow on Instagram @magura_bicycle.

Supporting Partners Cotic I've been riding and loving Cotic for a long time, but they aren't just great bikes, they are a great company too. Cotic really are focussed on doing what they can for our sport and our planet. They have made me feel like part of the family and they take that same approach with all their customers. That customer focus has been really clear during the pandemic. With parts in short supply, Cotic will do everything they can to help you. They offer rolling chassis builds so you can swap over good parts that you have on your current bike. You can even send them parts you've sourced and they will build them onto your new bike for you.

Strength Factory January is a month where tonnes of people are thinking about being fitter, getting leaner, and getting quicker on their bike as a result. Unfortunately, most people bite off more than they can chew and don't stick with it. But with the Strength Factory's Over 40s MTB programme it's not some crazy plan that promises abs in two weeks, this is an achievable 20-week plan for everyone. Designed to fit around the ups and downs that life throws at us, so that you can stick at it, be consistent and see and feel yourself improve. The programme is written so that you can do it in a gym, but you can also do it at home with just a few resistance bands, so whatever life or covid gives us in 2022, you can keep going and be in the best possible condition when the dry trails return.

Mixed wheel mountain bikes More great trails in more places High pivot mountain bikes Electronic bits and baubles, from drivetrains to droppers Next, we move on to the trends we see shaping up for 2022. Longer travel dropper posts and fatter seat tubes Large scale trail projects with unique funding sources New mountain bike destinations and trails opening as a response to overcrowded ones Bikes and parts supply improvements High pivots on shorter-travel bikes MTB geometry stabilization Finally, we discuss some of the trends we'd like to see happen sooner rather than later. More customizable bike builds DH or enduro as an Olympic sport Athletes receiving a more livable wage This episode of the Singletracks podcast is sponsored by Explore Brevard. Professional mountain biker Adam Craig says it's one of the top three places in the universe he's ever ridden. Where is this magical mountain biking nirvana?

Exfil is an Escape From Tarkov Podcast They're BACK! On this episode, MTBTrigger and Ronal talk all about the new wipe and a few of the changes from last wipe that are now having a, somewhat unexpected, impact.  Both Ronal and MTB are level 25 at the time of recording and have been having a ton of fun. They kick the episode off talking about how they have each been adapting and evolving their playstyle. MTB boasts a 17 raid survival streak and Ronal has been getting aggressive in PMC encounters. They break down what they've been doing to be successful and how they're approaching raids and fights in a different way. After a few raid stories and a strategic talk about point firing, the pair dig into a discussion about operational tasks and how their inclusion is keeping the game fresh and seems to be the answer to the gaps in quest content that was prevalent in previous wipes. Additionally, they talk about how having “random” things to do every few days can really break up the progression grind OR give you the little boost you need to unlock that next trader reputation level. Flea market changes, or exclusions, also get a good look because Ronal and MTB both believe the changes are extending the early game and “fair fight” feeling. Do you agree? Do you like the changes to the flea market? The conversation is rounded out with some quick mentions of the systems that are creating meaningful raid moments and interesting decisions - notably the injector case and the trade for a scav junkbox from Therapist loyalty level 1. All this and more inside the episode - good luck out there!   Catch up with MTBTrigger or Ronal at the EXFIL discord:  https://discord.gg/deU7RSs   Patreon is now live and active for those that are looking to directly support the podcast - https://www.patreon.com/XPMedianow (Thanks to those of you that nudged us to create this)   Podcast Direct Contact & Socials: Twitter - @EXFILpodcast Email - xpmedia2020@gmail.com Youtube - XPMedianow Website - www.xpmedianow.com   MTBtrigger Contact: Twitter - @mtbtrigger Twitch - twitch.tv/mtbtrigger   Ronalgaming Contact: Twitter - @ronalgaming Discord - Ronal#8004

We chat about Joe's approach to racing and how that's changed over the years. Hear how Joe made the move to enduro and what it's been like riding for Pole.

After being left without a pro-team ride for 2021, Katy Winton went all in on creating her own programme. We sat down to find out how that panned out over the 2021 season. As we've come to expect from Katy, this is an open and honest conversation about the ups and downs of the experience she's had.

Hear about the reality of the workload involved in managing a team, training and racing at a high level on the world stage and the impact that had on Katy's physical and mental health. This story has a happy ending, with Katy picking up a ride with GT Factory Racing for 2022, and we talk about how that came together and Katy's thoughts on that programme and what 2022 has to offer.

Well, another year is just about in the books. I think that most of us have had another interesting year with the on again/ off again pandemic and all of the changes it has brought to our lives. However, as much as some things change, others stay the same and I kept bringing you posts and info you couldn't find anywhere else to help you improve on and off the bike.   In this last post of the year I wanted to finish with a podcast recapping the best lessons I learned over the last year. Taking some time to reflect on these things is a great way to get ready for the new year and I wanted to share my reflections with you.   You‌ ‌can‌ ‌stream‌ ‌or‌ ‌download‌ this episode ‌from‌ ‌the‌ ‌link‌ ‌below‌ ‌or‌ ‌you‌ ‌can‌ ‌find‌ ‌it‌ ‌on‌ ‌‌Itunes‌,‌‌ ‌Podbean‌,‌‌ ‌‌Spotify‌‌ ‌‌and‌ ‌all‌ ‌other‌ ‌major‌ ‌podcasting‌ ‌platforms.‌ ‌  ‌ USE‌ ‌IN‌ ‌NEWSLETTER:‌ ‌ Click‌ ‌Here‌ ‌to‌ ‌Stream‌ ‌or‌ ‌Download‌ ‌This‌ ‌Podcast‌ ‌Episode‌ ‌   If I've been able to help you in any way this year it has been my honor. Coaching is my calling and the riders who let me into their lives in some small way to help them on their journey are doing more for me than I could ever do for them. I'm excited by the new direction I have planned for MTB Strength Training Systems and I hope that it will provide you with even better results.   Until 2022…   Ride Strong,   James Wilson   p.s. On Monday I will be releasing my updated 40+ MTB Rider Training Program, which is going to kick off some big plans I have for the coming year. This will be the only program of its kind, combining my unique perspective as a 40+ year old rider with over two decades of experience working with riders at all levels.    It will also be the first program to combine the new elements of Isometric Training and CO2 Tolerance Training into an MTB specific workout, which you won't find anywhere else. Once again I'm ahead of the curve and I'm bringing my fellow riders along for the ride. Keep an eye out on Monday for the email announcing the program's release, you won't want to miss the special deal I'll be having when I do.

Nirjala Tamrakar is from Nepal and from 2001 to 2012, she was known as the Mountain Queen, because she was the first female Nepalese Mountain Biking Champion.  She was also the first Nepalese woman to take part in a UCI Mountain Bike World Cup race, in France in 2012 and she's done the World's highest endurance event, the Yak Attack. Now in her early 40s, she's a mum of two, she moved to the UK with her British husband Dan in the middle of lockdown in late 2020. And in 2021, she became the first Nepalese woman to complete an iron distance triathlon, when she did the UK Ultimate Triathlon, in Whitchurch.  You'll hear: 10:10 Start of the interview with Nirjala, when we hear about her growing up in Kathmandu in Nepal ' I was a bookworm and there wasn't any physical activity to do so I didn't do any physical activity growing up. It was only study, study.' 13:00 Nirjala explains who she started to do yoga and how she heard about a bike race and then becoming Nepal Mountain Biking Champion. 16:00 The reaction of her friends and family as Nirjala got into Mountain Biking. 'why do you go in the muddy road, what do you get from it? You look insane, there is no logic in it. I wanted to follow my passion. I didn't want to do normal work in an office. I wanted to become something big, not normal and I wanted to leave my legacy. 19:34 Nirjala puts some of her success down to her childhood, which involved doing all of the house work. 'We had to do everything by hand. We had to carry water, we had a house made of mud and we had to clean the floor with cow dung. So I was stronger'. 25:00 We talk about changing attitudes for mothers in Nepal and how there is more encouragement for women to stay fit and healthy. 27:00 Nirjala talks about her 'mixed' feelings when she competed at a UCI World Cup in France ' my ranking was like 2,000+ in the World. Their preparation was huge. They had huge vans with every equipment. I was just their with my husband and I felt so small. But he said 'Be proud of yourself'. 33:00 We talk about cycling at high altitude and the side effects of altitude sickness 'even if you are very very fit, you can still struggle with altitude sickness. You get all sorts of symptoms and you can lose your mind. If you don't decide what to do at the right time, it can be life threatening.' 36:00 Nirjala explains why she didn't quit the 'Yak Attack' Race and the mental struggles she faced and how she kept going. 'when you have no other option, you have to be strong' 37:00 Nirjala on overcoming her fear of open water swimming to become the first Nepalese female to complete an iron distance triathlon. 'This was a big fantasy. I didn't know if I could do it or not. But I wanted to and it was a big motivating factor to be the first Nepalese female.' 44:00 Nirjala's message for the endurance community in Nepal and how the stereotypes have changed. 'All of the men used to say 'you can't do this, when are you quitting?' But they don't do it anymore, there is a huge MTB craze in Nepal and people are riding all of the time to ride and have the experience of Nepal. If you keep following your passion, you can reach it.'

In this episode of the BikeJames Podcast I look at how your internal chemistry affects your consciousness and how you can use breathing to affect both.

Getting a better understanding of this and the tools to do something had made a big impact on my performance and mindset and while I know that it isn't something that everyone will connect with, I know that some of you need this type of info more than you need another core training exercise or workout routine. I hope this podcast is the spark that you need to start paying more attention to this forgotten aspect of living a healthy and happy life. You can find more info at my website or let me know if you have any questions or comments, I'm always happy to help. Until next time… Ride Strong, James Wilson MTB Strength Training Systems p.s. I feel that this is such an important part of a holistic approach to your performance that I'm including breathwork in the new 40+ MTB Rider Training Program that I'll be releasing in a few weeks. Breathing is a foundation for your performance and mindset and something the older rider really needs to focus on to get the most out of what they have. I'll also be doing some remote classes and workshops in the coming year to share more about this with my fellow MTB riders. PODCAST NOTES Controlling your consciousness is one of the biggest questions faced by mankind. Your consciousness is how you are experiencing the world and it plays a direct role in your performance and happiness. While most people would recognize how changing your blood chemistry through a strong drug like LSD or mushrooms will affect your consciousness, most people fail to realize how small things on a daily basis do the same thing.   Another example is treatments for depression - the whole point of antidepressants is to change your internal chemistry into one that helps change your consciousness and perception of the world. Looking at natural chemistry, a good example would be a spike of adrenaline from getting startled or scared. Your consciousness and perception of the world changed as a result and no matter how much you didn't want it to happen, it will have an effect. On a performance level, rising levels of CO2 are what trigger that panicky “I Can't breathe” feeling - no matter how fit you are this change in blood chemistry will impact your consciousness and force you to slow down. As much as we hate to admit it, our internal chemistry will affect your consciousness - which affects your performance on the bike and in life - and without having an understanding of this and a plan for how to control it then you are leaving it to chance. So if your internal chemistry is so important then how can we influence it without drugs? The answer is through breathing. How you breath and the rate you breath at will directly influence your chemistry in some pretty profound ways. First, the muscles you use to breath will have an effect. Your body is designed to use the diaphragm to drive your breathing but, since breathing is so important, it will develop dysfunctional breathing patterns if this is not reinforced. The most common and problematic breathing dysfunction is the use of the chest to drive your breathing.  When you do this it is not only less efficient from a performance standpoint but it also creates a stress response in the body.  Since chest breathing is only supposed to be used during periods of high exertion - like running for your life - it signals to your body that you are under stress.  This increases the amount of stress hormones you have in your bloodstream. This less efficient breathing pattern also results in less efficient gas exchange in the lungs, which leads to higher CO2 levels. All of this affects your chemistry, which also affects your consciousness. You'll have a tendency to feel more stressed and have less control of your emotions under these conditions. Second, what hole you use to breathe has an effect. Breathing through the nose makes it easier to engage the diaphragm, which helps with the first problem.  Breathing through your nose also mixes Nitrous Oxide (NO2) into the air. NO2 is a vasodilator which opens up the blood vessels and makes it easier for blood to flow. The improved blood flow makes it easier to get oxygen to working muscles and to take up waste products like CO2.  And since rising levels of CO2 are what trigger the panicky “I can't breathe” feeling it is important to control this for performance and anxiety. Which leads us to the third point, which is how much you breathe has an effect. Most people tend to over breathe, which means they are breathing more than is needed for what they are doing. One of the problems with this is that it leads to chronically lowered levels of CO2 since you are not only taking in more oxygen than you need but you are also breathing out more CO2 as well. Chronically lowered levels of CO2 create a new baseline for the body, which means that it takes less of a rise in CO2 in your blood to trigger the “I can't breathe” feeling we have all experienced at some point. This has a direct effect on your consciousness while performing - if you are riding your bike and every hard effort triggers that feeling then you are not going to have a fun ride and you will not be able to push as hard and ride as fast. This is also a contributing factor to anxiety and panic attacks - since you need CO2 to release oxygen from red blood cells (known as the Bohr Effect) then blowing off too much CO2 will make it harder for your body to actually use the oxygen it has in it. So when something triggers a stress response that includes accelerated breathing with someone who is already over-breathing you can blow off so much CO2 that your brain starts to panic from not getting enough oxygen released into the bloodstream. This is why breathing into a paper bag can help someone who is having a panic attack and feels like they can't breathe - they intake some of the exhaled CO2, which raises the CO2 levels high enough to get the oxygen to release into the bloodstream. If you want to be able to control your consciousness you have to control your breathing. Breathing with the diaphragm, using the nose as much as possible and being aware of over breathing are all ways that you can have a big impact on your chemistry and consciousness.

Rested XP is a New World Podcast hosted by MTBtrigger and Ronal. On this episode, MTBtrigger and Ronal talk about their first run through the Dynasty Expedition.  The expedition was technically for characters of slightly lower level compared to the pair at level 60.  Dynasty still posed a challenge as this was MTB's first attempt at healing in New World and Ronal's first experience with tanking.  Both have extensive experience in both categories in other MMOs, but the action combat system allows for and creates unique challenges which the pair discusses in this episode. In addition to the role changes, MTB also talked about the Void Gauntlet, the new weapon added in the 1.1 patch.  The weapon seemed like a natural pair to the life staff, but MTB found the synergies to run deep with both weapons which was further solidified by the challenging encounters in Dynasty. Finally, there is a closing thought about the hope directed towards Amazon not giving up on PvE content.  The game has publicly been developed with a PvP mindset with many of the PvE elements relying on PvP features.  MTB and Ronal both resonated with the idea that New World has a massive opportunity for unique and engaging content in the PvE space.    All this and more in the episode!  Good luck out there adventurers!   Catch up with MTBTrigger or Ronal at the XP Media discord:  https://discord.gg/deU7RSs   Patreon is now live and active for those that are looking to directly support the podcast - https://www.patreon.com/XPMedianow (Thanks to those of you that nudged us to create this)   Podcast Direct Contact & Socials: Email - xpmedia2020@gmail.com Youtube - XPMedianow Website - www.xpmedianow.com   MTBtrigger Contact: Twitter - @mtbtrigger Twitch - twitch.tv/mtbtrigger   Ronalgaming Contact: Twitter - @ronalgaming Discord - Ronal#8004

In this episode of the Bike Tour Adventures Podcast I have the chance to speak with one of the most bad-ass women I know of. I first heard about Meaghan when I was researching the Northcape - Tarifa bike race and saw that only 1 Canadian had previously raced the event. On top of that, she has bike toured Canada, the USA and Mexico, raced the Trans Am Bike Race, NorthCape 4000, Paris-Brest-Paris, and was the 2019 World 24hr Time Trial Champion and course record holder in the women's division. More recently she finished 3rd in the Alberta Rockies 700, and crushed the BC Epic 1000 as the overall winner, while setting a new women's FKT. On top of that, she has ridden lots of other grand brevets, races, and mini tours. Furthermore, she holds an MFA in writing, has been published in numerous cycling journals and magazines, and has recently written a travel memoire, titled "South Away: The Pacific Coast on Two Wheels". All these accomplishments aside, Meaghan is extremely humble and modest and I am super thrilled to finally have the chance to listen to her story.   BTA's Newest Supporters: Joshua Greenlaw   EPISODE 059: https://biketouradventures.com/interview-059/  To become a Bike Tour Adventures Patreon, follow the link below: https://www.patreon.com/biketouradventures    Find Meaghan at: INSTAGRAM: https://www.instagram.com/meaghanhackinen/  FACEBOOK: https://www.facebook.com/meaghanhackinen  WEBSITE: https://meaghanhackinen.com/    Follow me at… WEBSITE: http://www.biketouradventures.com  YOUTUBE: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCPQl_pNcMZA-hHckhVrpmaw  FACEBOOK: https://www.facebook.com/biketouradventures/  INSTAGRAM: https://www.instagram.com/bike_tour_adventures/  TWITTER: https://twitter.com/BikeTourAdv  ITUNES: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/bike-tour-adventures/id1464406852    Show Notes ~ 00m 45s     Pre-interview news; lucky draw; sponsors ~ 04m 05s     Intro to Meaghan Hackinen; Meaghan's background ~ 11m 40s      Cycling the Pacific Coast from B.C. to Baja ~ 29m 00s     Meaghan's book, "South Away: the pacific coast on two wheels" ~ 33m 15s      Cycling across Canada --> What she learned during her first tour ~ 38m 40s      Randonneuring and the Trans Am Bike Race ~ 53m 09s      Endurance racing in Europe --> Northcape-Tarifa Bike Race; Northcape 400 ~ 59m 10s      24-hour time-trial world championship ~ 63m 10s      Transitioning to MTB endurance racing; BC Epic rundown; AR700 ~ 01h 40m      Plans for 2022; off-season training; where to find Meaghan online

A lot of things have changed with mountain bikes over the last decade or so, but some obvious ones are an increase in both capability and weight. The two go hand in hand, of course, and while a contemporary trail bike comes in a few pounds heavier than it might have many years ago, I think we can all agree it's nice to know that your headtube (probably) won't peel off anytime soon, that your four-piston brakes can stop you like a brick wall, and that the only tacos you'll be seeing are the delicious kind. And not only is this newer and slightly heavier bike far more reliable, but it's also saving your ass instead of actively trying to murder you, which is always nice.
