I am also shocked that I'm going to talk about how necessary I've realized it is for me to split the classic "Zone 6: Anaerobic" into at least two buckets like WKO does, which basically shakes out to 120-150% FTP, and 150-235ish% (not as concerned with the upper limit and more on that in the video).I realized all of this after getting some early season shalacking and needed to get tee'd up for the VERY hard Capital Region Road Race (New York State Pro/1 State Championship).When using 6 zones for training, it's like "wow, 19m of anaerobic time"...but when using iLevels (9 zones), I had a workout that had NO time over 140% FTP, which i find very important to note for racing purposes...there's a LOT of smashing above that in races, and while I hit some "anaerobic training" at 19 whole minutes, it still lacked those 30-90 banger efforts. I fooled myself!00:00 Welcome 02:09 Race example: Capital Region02:54 How much 150%+ training do I need?03:58 Is a “KOM Day” hard enough?04:17 See the difference in zones06:44 What we need before “A Races”anaerobic blog mentioned: https://www.evoq.bike/blog/anaerobic-capacity-cycling

As we enter the busy part of the XC season, we award the next batch of D3 Glory Days Runner of the Week Awards. For the first time in this young award, the runners hail from the same college. Week 4 winners are John Lucey and Genna Girard from Williams College. After winning the Little 3 Championship last weekend, John Lucey continued his winning ways in 2023. This time, he crossed the line first at his home invite: Purple Valley. Once a bigger invite, Purple Valley still attracts strong team including last year's national champs: MIT. Up front, Lucey led his teammates to a 1-2-3 victory which helped pave the way for an early season victory over MIT. Lucey knows where they're at in the season but gains confidence from this individual and team victories. Lucey was an All-American last year and has goal to improve upon his 18th place finish. Genna Girard officially opened her 2023 season with a commanding victory. With her win by almost a minute, Girard was excited to get back to racing. She suffered an injury during the indoor track season and wasn't able to race Outdoors. Girard wasn't sure what to expect in this first race and was aiming to keep it a controlled effort. And she did just that. With her only competition coming from MIT, Girard was able to pull away from them early and never looked back. Girard brings a great perspective on how to handle injuries. In the episode, she goes into how she has grown as a runner as she reflects on her tendencies earlier in college. Girard is excited to be back healthy and running with her teammates. She was an All-American in XC back in 2021 and after missing a top 40 spot last year, she has her eyes set on that recognition again. How to Support D3 Glory Days: D3 Glory Days Venmo.

All links: https://linktr.ee/theaustinjadams Substack: https://austinadams.substack.com ----more---- Full transcription Adams Archive. Hello, you beautiful people and welcome to the Adams Archive. My name is Austin Adams and thank you so much for listening today. On today's episode, we are going to dive deep into some wild situations. The first one being that the CIA has whistleblower come out and said that the CIA was actually paying off It's analysts to bury the findings that COVID was a lab leak, literally giving. Their own analysts, financial incentives to switch their opinions on whether or not that was the case. So we read about that, then we will discuss Russell Brand, who is in the news for some not so good things. Some reports coming out and accusations regarding some sexual assault allegations and potentially even worse, he was actually had his YouTube channel suspended or D demonetized today. So we'll discuss. That as a result. And then going a little bit deeper into that, we're going to look at the Mormon Church actually denouncing Tim Ballard. Tim Ballard being the once founder of Operation Underground Railroad. Also the person who is depicted in the movie, the Sound of Freedom, which we've talked about at length here before. So we'll look at what these allegations are, why they denounced him, and. Tim Ballard had a response to this that he did a video on this guy with his PRs is pretty, pretty wild stuff. So we'll look at that. After that, we'll look at a Texas church talking about churches Texas church, which is experimenting with AI generated services using chat GPT for worship sermon and original songs. That is one of the most dystopian things that I've ever heard. So, we'll discuss that. Now, again, as always, the longer you stay with me, the deeper we get. So, after that, we'll discuss the findings of the Mexican doctors who concluded after their tests were done on the alleged non human alien Corpses. So we have their findings on that. So if you don't know, we haven't talked about this yet here because we had a little bit of a layoff over the last couple of weeks for several reasons. But what happened was Mexico had a congressional hearing where there was two alleged alien bodies, which were shown at the congressional hearing. And they look every bit of ET that you could imagine. So what ended up happening is these Mexican doctors actually did a, some tests on these bodies and we'll see, I haven't read this yet, so we'll see what they actually found. And then, last but not least, this is a story that has been surfacing. Pretty consistently somewhat recently regarding, if you recall, Malaysia Air, I believe it was Malaysia Air 370. That was a airplane which had gotten lost, you know, we go all the way back to 2000 and, let's see. This was filmed in 2014, yeah, lost in 2014, I believe. Now there's some really big deep dives that some people did into this situation. And they came up with some pretty wild stuff. And we'll discuss it all. But first, I need you to head over to the substack Austin Adams dot substack calm, go ahead and get signed up.

And let's jump into it. The Adams archive. All right. The very first thing that we're going to discuss today is going to be that the CIA had a whistleblower come out and say that the CIA was paying off its own analysts to bury the findings that COVID was a lab leak from Wuhan. China. So let's read this article. It comes from the New York Post and it says, the Central Intelligence Agency offered to pay off analysts in order to bury their findings. That Covid most likely was from a lab in Wuhan China. A new whistleblower testimony to Congress alleges, and this goes on to say that a senior. Level CIA officer told house committee leaders that his agency tried to pay off six analysts who found that SARS COVID 2 likely originated in a Wuhan lab. And if they changed their position and said that this, the virus jumped from animals to humans, according to a letter sent Tuesday to CIA director, William Burns. Select committee on the coronavirus pandemic chairman, Brad one strap and. Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Mike Turner requested all the documents, communications, and pay info from the CIA's COVID Discovery Team by September 26th. So they're actually going to be doing further investigation into this, thankfully, and that will be in just about a week's time. So we'll have to see what comes up from that. According to the whistleblower, at the end of its review, six of the seven members of the team believed the intelligence and science were sufficient to make a low confidence assessment that COVID 19 originated from a laboratory in Wuhan, China. The house. Panel chairman wrote. That's crazy. Six out of the seven people on this specific team believed that the virus came from a lab leak, and the CIA wanted to hush every one of them, and they tried to do so by incentivizing them, allegedly, With money. So now they're pulling all of those financial hearings. Now we actually have the document from Congress which says. Which is comes from the Honorable William J. Burns says to select to Director Burns to the Select Committee of the Coronavirus pandemic and the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence together. The committees have received new and concerning whistleblower testimony regarding the agency's investigation into the origins of COVID 19. A multi decade, senior level, current agency officer has come forward to provide information to the committees regarding the agency's analysis into the origins of COVID 19. According to the whistleblower, the agency assigned seven officers to a COVID discovery team. The team consisted of multidisciplinary and experienced officers with significant scientific expertise. According to the whistleblower, at the... End of its review, six of the seven members of the team believed that the intelligence and science were severe sufficient to make a low confidence assessment that COVID 19 originated from a laboratory in Wuhan, China. The seventh member of the team who also happened to be the most senior was the lone officer to believe that COVID 19 originated through zoonosis. The whistleblower further contends that to come to the eventual public contends that to come to the eventual public determination of uncertainty, the other six members were given a sufficient or significant monetary incentive to change their position. These allegations from a seemingly credible source requires the committees to conduct further oversight of how the CIA handled its internal investigations into the origins of COVID 19. To assist the committees, and again, this is What they actually wrote to Congress with their investigations. We request the following documents and information as soon as possible, but no later than September 26, 2023, all documents and communications regarding the establishment of all iterations of the COVID discovery teams. All documents and communications between or among the members of all iterations of the COVID discovery team regarding the origins of COVID 19 and all documents and communications between or among members of all iterations of the COVID discovery team and other employees or contractors of the agency regarding the origins of COVID 19all documents and communications between them or among members of all iterations. Including but not limited to the US Department of State, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the US Department of Health and Human Services to include the National Institutes of Health and the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and the US Department of Energy regarding the origins of Covid 19. And lastly, all documents and communications regarding the pay history to include the awarding of any type of financial or performance-based incentive financial bonuses to members of all iterations of the C Ovid 19 discovery team. The select subcommittee on the coronavirus pandemic is authorized to investigate the origins of the coronavirus pandemic, including but not limited to the federal government's funding of gain of function research and executive branch policies, deliberations, decisions, activities, and internal or external communications related to the COVID coronavirus pandemic. Whew, that's a mouthful. Further house rule. 11 Clause 2 and 1B grants committees of the House of Representatives with the authority to require by subpoena or otherwise the attendance and testimony of such witnesses in the production of such books, records, correspondence, memorandums, papers, and documents as it considers necessary should the required information not be produced in an expeditious or satisfactory manner. You should expect the committee or committees to use its additional tools and authorities to satisfy our legislative and oversight requirements. Thank you for your attention. And then signed by the chairman. Of the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, Mike Turner, and the Chairman of Select Subcommittee on Coronavirus Pandemic, Brad Wenstrup. Curious who this Brad Wenstrup is. Anyways. The Honorable Raul Ruiz Ranking Member. Alright, so there's your, there's your document on that. Alright so. This goes on to say that in a separate letter the House Committee leaders, and I'll go ahead and just pull this up on the screen for you guys so you can actually. Look with me here. There we go. All right. So this also goes on to say, In a separate letter, In a separate letter, the House committee leaders identified former CIA chief operating officer, Andrew McCready, Mac, Macridis, as having played a central role in the COVID investigation, and asked him to sit for a transcribed interview. At CIA, we are committed to the highest level of standards of analytic rigor, integrity, and objectivity. Of course you are, just not when it comes to assassinating Kennedys. We do not pay an analyst to reach specific conclusions. Of course we wouldn't do that. The post, in a statement, we take these allegations extremely serious and are looking into them. We will keep our congressional oversight committees appropriately informed. Hmm. Interesting, interesting to see if there's anything more from this article that we should be discussing now to the comment section, which is really what matters, which says that if they are actively covering up evidence that COVID came from gain of function research that was weaponizing a virus, then I wonder what other part they might have in all of this. It seems as if we would want to know the truth of origin if we truly want to prevent similar future. outbreaks. That's a good point, right? Why would you want to cover up the origins of this? Why would you not want to get to the bottom of what happened to prevent it from happening again in the future, unless you or somebody, you know, or somebody who's giving you money. Had any take or partook in any of it, right? Why, why, if you, if you don't have any skin in the game, if you're not somebody who's going to be held liable, if you're not concerned about anything coming back to you as an organization, or maybe as the person who ordered these things to happen, why would you be doing this? That's weird. Huh. The next person said, remember when it was the political left that challenged questions and were skeptical of the various three lettered agencies yet now the left is in unquestioning lockstep when with its former arch enemies, pretty remarkable change in the last. generation. It is pretty crazy to like you go back to the 70s, you go back to the 80s, you go back to the 90s, right? The Democratic Party, the left was primarily the hippies, not the the suit and tie wearing grandfathers that we used to think were Republicans back in the day, right? You always that's always how it was pictured for a very long time, right? That that Republicans were these stiff old white men, and The cool people, the, the artists, the this, the that, the, you know, the people who were free thinkers were the people who were on the left, right? Those were the liberals. Those were the the, the Democrats. And, and it seems like we have shifted pretty, pretty significantly to where the left just wants to be completely in line with anything and everything that daddy government says that they should be in line with. And the right questions literally everything, right? For how long were we saying that there's alien evidence, alien evidence, alien evidence? And all of a sudden, the government comes out with alien evidence, and all of a sudden, we're all questioning it, right? Just because the government actually told us that. There was no winning scenario there. But, now that that information's coming out, and it's coming from the mouth of the government, and not other institutions, which we actually trust, we're questioning that too. Because, Everything the government does has an agenda or else they wouldn't be doing it because the government is just about siphoning money from the pool of tax money that they extorted from its people, right? So once you realize that, you have to realize that there's an agenda behind everything, right? The only way for you to be successful in politics, the only way for you to get into the positions that you want to is, well, maybe a already have hundreds of billions of dollars in the bank and self fund yourself and not have to take money from lobbyists, but maybe there's only been. A handful of people like that in recent history and by handful, I mean, maybe two or three and by recent history, I mean, since 1776, but but it's, it's pretty wild to see that, you know, the left is just so in line with everything the government says, so in line with mask mandates, so in line with you know, what, what the CIA is doing with, with everything and anything that comes out from the government. They're just immediately fall in line with it, right? All of that. They are the propaganda Enforcers is the liberal far left, right and and we have to say far left Although I I tend to believe that the left is far more radical in this ideologies than the right is Even if you go to like the far right, right, the far right, being the proud boy type people the, the QAnon conspiracy theorists on, on all of the the deep channels of 4chan, right? It's like when, in order to get to that level, you're probably looking at when it, when it comes to the liberal left, right? We're talking about what, what are the extreme ideologies of the liberal left? The extreme ideologies of the liberal left is that, oh, Any single moment prior to birth, a child should be able to be killed within the womb, right? There's, there's no, there's no conversation more than until it's born, right? That's a pretty radical idea. And I would say, let's say 30 percent of Democrats agree with that idea. Okay, there's one. All right, the secondary idea being that, you know, let's let's say socialism, like true capital, not capitalism, but socialism, that, you know, everybody and anybody should have their fair share of everything, regardless of work ethic, right? Equality of outcome, right? And you might look at it, maybe not straight socialism, but equality of outcome, right? They want the top 1 percent of people to pay the top, you know, 75 percent of taxes, right? Okay, that seems like somewhat of a radical ideology. They don't want people to be able to have Guns that's a that's a pretty radical ideology. Let's just say again for argument's sake that that's 30 percent 30 percent of the radical left Believes that we shouldn't be able to own any weapons at all any weapons at all Well in 30 percent might be generous. It's probably closer like 35 40 and again, I'm just throwing shit out there, but 35% And then you go into what's another radical idea? Oh, well, maybe that your children at the age of two to three years old, four years old should be able to determine their gender, even though they were born with the chromosomes that they were born with. Okay, that's a pretty radical ideology that your child should be able to choose its own gender when it can't choose its own lunch. Because it would choose candy every day. And that's maybe closer to 60 percent of the, let's say, the radical left, or the left in general, believes that. Okay? We can probably even take that further and further and further, looking at the different ideologies. But let's say 30 60 percent of the far left ideologies Trickle into the majority almost of what the left believes right now. We, we can go to the other side of things and say, what are the radical ideologies of the radical? Right. Right. Okay. Trump's been in president for the last, or has been president during Biden's entire term, and we're just waiting on him to raise his hand and say, it was me the whole time, guys. And rip off his mask like it's Scooby-Doo You know, that's like the radical, radical, right. QAnon people. Right. And obviously, you know, QAnon's been, been has some, some merit to some of its belief systems when it comes to the the child sex trafficking rings and things like that. There's obvious merit to that. But, but when we're talking about the fact that there's going to be Trump's. In charge of the real military and he, and I think we haven't heard much whispers of that over the last year or so, but for about the first year or two for, for Joe Biden's presidency, there was a serious group of small group of extremist conservatives, extremist conservatives who were thinking that Trump was going to come back and take over and be like, ha, it was me, right? I'm still president. And, and, you know, that's, that's pretty radical, but I would say maybe Four, three, 3%, maybe less than 3% of of people right now. Another radical ideology on the right might be what? I can't, it's hard to even think of any. I dunno that you shouldn't have drag shows in front of children Like what is, what is the radical rights belief systems that the government shouldn't you know, we didn't even get the freedom of speech when it comes to the left, right? Censorship. The, the, the right might think that there should be No. No. No censorship of speech, right? That's not even radical. So it's just hard to see. It's hard to see what is the what? And I'm open to the conversation. So send me a message. Let me know what is the radical ideas of the right. And maybe maybe we can start to have the percentage conversations I just had with the left, but it's so much easier. Okay, let's just go with abortion. Right abortion. Let's say every single person believes that there should be no ability to have any abortion. And that let's call that a A radical ideology within the right. Let's just say that just for argument's sake. What percentage of people do you think That are conservatives that hold that belief that just zero abortions for any reason whatsoever, regardless of age, regardless of circumstance, regardless of medical situations, maybe, maybe 10%, maybe 5%, I would think like Uh, and primarily made up of people who are highly religious and for religious reasons, not just ideological reasons. So it's just a weird conversation, right? The far left is far more of the left than the far right being part of the right, right? The percentages of those people are just so much lower than what we see. So the craziness... That the entire left is pretty crazy in their ideology because you get thrown out of the group if you don't agree with all of it. Right? So, anyways, there's your tangent on that. Where were we? I don't think it matters. Last comment says there was no lab leak, virus developed in Georgia and released worldwide through various means with various intensities. Not natural, not an accident, U. S. military operation under the auspices of the deep state. Hmm. That's an interesting one. Now, if you go back, I did a whole episode on the what is it called? The water in the water. What was it? That guy, Peter or something did a documentary about how he believed that it was some form of snake venom that was being released to people through the water systems, right? That was a pretty, that was a crazy, crazy idea. But there's a whole documentary on it. Let's see if I can remember what it was called. Let's go. COVID, Snake, Venom, Water, Documentary. And I did a whole podcast breaking this down. So, you can go back and listen to that. Watch the water. Watch the water. That's what it was. Hmm. Yeah, I believe that was, and this guy is the guy who did it. That he interviewed. This, what's the guy's name? Here he is. Pretty sure the guy's like a chiropractor or some shit. But that's a pretty crazy one that the water, the drinking water was being poisoned with snake venom. That was a, that was a pretty wild one, but, but interesting. And I believe if you go back and actually listen to it, there was, there was some interesting arguments within that. But anyways, maybe that's what they were discussing within that comment there. But wrapping that topic up, the CIA was apparently and allegedly, according to this whistleblower, Paying people not to say that it was a lab leak. And again, you have to ask yourself why. All right? In other news, Russell Brand has been accused of sexual assault. And as a result, his YouTube channel has been immediately demonetized without any actual trial, any hearing. Right? And this is somebody's income. So... YouTube blocks Russell Brand from making money from videos on his channel over sexual assault and rape allegations. Right? Something, something that's embedded in our law is innocent until proven guilty. Right? The guy from That 70s Show that Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis was just basically sticking up for in a letter. Was convicted of rape by two women convicted, right? We can demonetize his YouTube. Not sure he would have access to it anyways. But do you just get to as a company? D demonetized the platform people kill their income for allegations. Now, are you playing judge and jury? And how does that play into when somebody goes to court for these things? Right? If you're if you're saying that you believe this person is guilty and also who's making these decisions at YouTube and that. Different companies like this. Anyways, let's go ahead and read this article, which says YouTube has suspended advertisements on Russell Brand's channel in light of a slew of sexual assault and rape allegations made against the comedian as clips of his former wife, Katy Perry, have resurfaced the platform suspensions for violating its policy will still allow brand to. Upload videos, of course it will, it just won't give him money, but he will not profit from advertising. Meanwhile, footage has re emerged of the moment Brand ended his relationship with US singer Perrie by text message in 2011 following their 14 month marriage. Presenter Vanessa Feltz has also shared deeply offensive footage of Brand. Asking to sleep with her and her daughters. When she appeared on his chat show in 2006 and the late comedian, Sean Locke disclosed the reason he hated brand and the clip from the panel show eight out of 10 cats in 2014, explaining he had a fear for his he had a fear his daughters would bring home a man like brand one day. I don't see how that has any merit. Brand has vehemently denied the very serious criminal allegations and said his relationships were absolutely always consensual. So let's see if we can get maybe some of these videos. No, they're just going to send us to a big page of random stuff. All right. So it goes on to say a timeline key points. YouTube suspends monetization. Big brother co creator describes brand allegations as. depressing and BBC confirms removal of brands, content, brand episodes removed from C4 website. No evidence to suggest channel four bosses knew of brands alleged assaults and review into the timeline at BBC led to by director of editorial complaints. This was three hours ago. It says that who cares? That's a silly one. It says the allegations against Russell Brand over the weekend have got people examining the age of consent. Rightly so, that a 30 year old man would embark on a sexual relationship with a schoolgirl feels instinctively wrong to many of us. The woman in question, Alice, who has said that she now feels she was groomed by Brand, though he also denied all of the allegations, has called for consent law to be reviewed in light of her experience. The law enabled it, she told reporters. For the times Saturday night, it shouldn't be legal for a 16 year old to have a relationship with a man in their thirties. Now, most of us are comfortable with the idea that a 16 year old can consent to have sex with another 16 year old, that two teenagers can have a sexual relationship, but we start to feel iffy when there's an adult in the sexual relationship with a minor, as the gap age gap increases, so does our discontent or disquiet. That's not mere hand wringing or moralizing, and it's not about. Trying to deny young people their sexuality, it's because we understand implicitly, even when we can't articulate it, that an imbalance of power can affect consent. Okay, agreed. 16 year olds and 30 year olds shouldn't be having sex. Let's see this clip. Can I have it off with either you or your daughters, the answer's no, and I'm, no. It's terribly awkward when you're a guest on somebody else's show, particularly in a theatre which is full of great fans of, of the presenter, Russell Brand, so they all loved him, they were cheering him and egging him on, and I was in this unbelievably awkward position where you don't quite know what to do. Are you meant to pretend you think it's funny and laugh along? Are you meant to stand up and walk out in high dutch and, and, and look as if you're a spoilsport and a party pooper? You know, what are you supposed to do? But I know I was deeply offended then as I remain deeply offended now. Now that woman looked about in her 40s and not very attractive at the time. And now that's not to take away the seriousness of this clip, but I don't see that there being any merit to that of people just trying to smear him. Now, now something that's come out as a revolt result of this, you know, and something that there seems to be a lot of attention on Russell Brand right now, right now, Russell Brand speaking out consistently, consistently, consistently against the deep state against George Soros against the world economic forum. So To me, it would be no surprise that there's things coming back. Now, from 20, 30, 20 years ago, 10, 15, 20 years ago, that obviously have not been litigated. There's no, nothing going through the court system. So again, I'm not saying that I don't think a 30 year old and a 16 year old should have a sexual relationship. That's creepy. It's weird. It's gross. I, I don't know if I, you know, we just had the one side of that, but he seems to say that he. didn't do any of that. Now telling a woman in her 40s during a talk show, let me have a go at you or your daughters and she's 40 and maybe your daughter's 2025 or something like, okay, it's still nothing there. You know, I would love to see, you know, and here's a, here's a good quote that came from Reddit. That's pretty popular right now. It says, All start caring whether or not Russell Brand had some questionable sex a decade or two ago when the media starts caring what Bill Gates or Prince Andrew was doing on Epstein Island. Or when it starts naming the customers Ghislaine Maxwell was convicted of supplying trafficked minors to. Right. There seems to be a lot of emphasis, right? I'll start caring about Russell brand. When you start to show that you actually care about the victims, right? That's what this is saying here. Not, not, let's not diminish if there was some allegations. Cause I haven't read enough into them to say they weren't true or they were true or whatever. Let's just say, sure. There's allegations here, but what we know 100 percent besides the fact that Russell brand had, what seems like a still. Something that has not been convicted against him. And he still hasn't even gone to court for this. That doesn't seem like there's any charges. But there has been somebody who was supplying and trafficking hundreds, if not thousands, of underage women to Prince Andrew, to Bill Clinton, to Hollywood executives, to Hollywood elites, to... Everybody in power, and everybody knew about it. Oh, and also, so did the news companies who silenced the articles to come out. Right? Everybody knew about this, but nobody said anything. And still... They're protecting the lists today, you're going to tell me you're going to tell me that they raided Epstein's Island and found nothing of merit that they're releasing to the public about who was a part of this, how they did it, about what we're doing as a result of that, you're going to tell me they raided an entire island that was used specifically for track picking and found nothing, not a Bit of evidence, not a single strand of evidence that led them to convict somebody who was on that island doing those things. Bill Gates, like I said, Prince Andrew, Bill Clinton just person after person after person. And the list, you know, we've gone into that and the whole breakdown of the black list that came out or black book that came out from Epstein. So you can go back and listen to that to see who was all a part of it. But. It's pretty crazy. And, and so this article or this, this person posted and goes on to say that I'll care what about what one former US president is or isn't guilty of. When the media starts caring about what other former US presidents are or are not guilty of. And I'll care about a more powerful country invading a less powerful country when the media reports the conflict and its context in exactly the same tone. And with the degree, same degree of neutrality versus moral outrage as it uses when there's a more powerful country in question is the U S A. Until that day, the mainstream media and everyone who repeats its talking points on social media is not, but idle gossip and the sound of one hand clapping. Until the day I could not give less fucks about what mainstream media says any person did or didn't do, so... Well, that's not what it said. It says about who the mainstream media says any fucker fucked or didn't fuck. And so fuck the mainstream media. Let anyone... It fucks with tell them to fuck the fuck off. With its farce ial fuckery. Now, the top comment on this, and I don't disagree with this, is you are allowed to care about all of those things simultaneously. Right. I don't disagree with that. It definitely seems like you should, you know, If you care about people who are the victims, you should just care about them regardless, but it doesn't seem like it's obviously not the same level of situation here. Now, in light of these things coming up here, I'm actually going to skip. We'll maybe push off the Tim Ballard one to a different episode here, because we have a little bit more to go. And I have a little bit limited amount of time here. So the next one that we're going to move to is a Texas church experiments with. AI generated service and uses chat GPT for worship sermon and original songs to praise the Lord says the church said the experiment would be a one time event. And this comes from Fox news. Now, if this isn't the most dystopian thing you've ever heard of when it comes to religion, I don't know what it is. This is just So sci fi, weird, and cult y. It says, with artificial intelligence seemingly infiltrating every facet of our lives, one church decided to experiment with the technology for one of its services last week. The Violet Crown City Church, located in Austin, held an AI generated service on Sunday, describing the experiment as uncharted territory. Yeah, because you're starting a cult with... a robot at the head of it. This, and you're, you're, you're actually the, so here's a philosophical issue with this is that you're, you're taking the person who is, let's say the, the coding behind the AI and turning that into a deity, right? You're, you're giving it infinite amounts of power over people. When somebody gives their life to a God or a deity or a religion and says, I believe in you. I trust in you. I give you my life. I give you my faith. You know, faith is a faith is a. a tricky thing, right? Faith is, is now not always blind faith, but, but faith with with a little bit of suspicion is, is healthy, right? But faith, faith is a tricky thing. And if you give that faith to something who's, who's being, can be at any single point manipulated by man. Right? You're, you're giving religious potential. You're giving deity like power to something that is man itself, right? We cannot have man worshiping man. That's the problem that we saw with science during COVID science, right? It turned into a cult, right? There's no man who should be a deity and there's no artificial intelligence that should be a deity because what does that become other than the manifestation of the programming, right? Right? So this says. This Sunday, they said, we're entering somewhat uncharted territory by letting Chachibiti create the order of worship, prayers, sermon, liturgy, and even an original song from our 10 a. m. service, the church wrote on its official Facebook page. The purpose, the purpose is to invite us to consider the nature of truth and challenge our assumptions about what, what God can make sacred and inspired. The Church acknowledged such an experiment would be easy to write off, but encouraged its members to keep an open mind. Why not attend instead of an experience for yourself, the Church said, clarifying that this would be a one time experiment and not something we'll likely do again. Yeah, I hope not. The Church assanjed any worries that Skynet, a reference to the fictional AI, I'm not sure an AI can actually express the emotions of love and kindness and empathy, Chambers said. I think that we must practice love and express that. Not only feel it, but we must. Express it. Interesting. Now the comment on this was pretty sure God was not impressed with the vanity of that service. They wanted the creator of the entire universe to interact with a machine? It's like man saying, here, listen to this thing we created. God made man so he could interact and connect with man. Not so that man could make a machine and use it as his proxy. Yes. Agreed. Right, this is, if you think there is layers to reality, one of those layers being the higher, the higher reality, right, which is, let's call it heaven or we're, we're, we're God lives, right? And the layer that we're on being a lower dimension of reality, right? You cannot create, and you cannot, when, when somebody is creating a sermon, when somebody is writing a song, when somebody is deciding on what they do or do not want to talk about, If you believe in, in the faith of, of Christian, Christianity and religion, you believe that God is speaking through that person, right? God's not going to speak through an AI chatbot that was created by some Silicon Valley, woke, purple haired, ear ringed, Weirdo, right? Earrings like there's something wrong with earrings but it's all, you know, I, I pictured like 22 earrings on their head and gate big gauges. Right? But God's not going to speak through that person or at least through the coding that they wrote. I'm sorry. Right? So, so if you believe that that is of this reality that is of this realm and it's not going to be the real thing and all that opens up is a weird it. Alien based cult. Let's get into the good stuff. Alright, so the doctors, if you go back, the doctors in Mexico actually have come out and done testing on the alien bodies that were found in Peru. Now they claim that these were almost over a thousand years old when they were found and they were found in the ruins of I believe it wasn't wreckage, but they were just found and dug up by like archaeologists. So it says Mexican doctors have found no evidence of any assembly or manipulation of the skulls of the so called non human being remains that were presented to Mexico's Congress last week. Seemingly proven the remains were not human made. The scientists conducted a number of tests on the two specimens at the Neuer Clinic on Monday and live streamed the entire procedure. Wow, that's pretty cool. In the end, Jose Zels Benitez, the director of Health Sciences Research Institute and the secretary of the Mexican Navy offices, said the studies proved the alleged aliens belonged to a single skeleton and were not assembled with human objects. He also said his team found that one was alive, was intact, Was biological and was in gestation, pointing to large lumps inside the alleged E. T. 's abdomen, which suggested could be eggs. Whoa. I can affirm that these bodies have no relation to human beings, he previously claimed. The pair, which were allegedly unearthed in Cusco, Peru in 2017, have elongated heads with three fingers on each hand. Creepy. Super creepy. Especially when you look at the pictures of this MRI. Whoa, how are these pictures not out? That's crazy. Also, I do just want to say that nobody seems to give a fuck about the fact that they just showed alien corpses on live TV and then just did an autopsy on them with MRI machines and cat scans and came out with the results. I haven't seen a single person. I found this literally randomly on the New York Post. It says, but otherwise they appear humanoid in shape with two arms and two legs. Each my son. Said that they had strong light bones and no teeth, and had implants of ca, ca, ca, ca, cadmium and osmium, which is one of the scary, scariest elements on Earth. Also, one third of their d n A is unknown. He testified claiming that beings are not part of our terrestrial evolution. These specimens are not part of our evolutionary history on earth. They're not beings recovered from a U F O crash site. Instead, they were found in diatom. Minds and subc subsequently became fossilized, which is an algae. This is the first time it is presented in such a form. And I think there is a clear demonstration that we are dealing with non human specimens. They're not related to any other species in our world, but many have expressed skepticism about the discovery. For years, academics, archaeologists and scientists said that mummified remains, that UFO enthusiasts claim or aliens are generally just modified human bodies. And there's people looking at these pictures. There's picture after picture of these skulls. Oh my gosh. Could you imagine being in this room? How wild is that? The very first comment on this said, I am partly convinced they are not human and could be extraterrestrial. However, the DNA results will tell the tale. It should be easy to send a small sample of DNA to a reputable company. In fact, why not send one of the eggs as well? If it was alive at one time, that should be. The final proof of origin. Somebody else commented back to that person and said, is anyone going to believe anything coming from Mexico? Says they performed the same tests on Biden and got the same results. Oh, pretty crazy. All right. And last but not least on today's episode, we're going to dive into the Malaysia air three 70 conspiracy. This was posted eight days ago on conspiracy Reddit by additional underscore add 3796. And I've dabbled in this a little bit. I haven't read the whole thing, but it's pretty crazy. So this says, Hello, this is Ashton from Twitter, and I have been writing about the MH370 videos for the past month. They are real, leaked, military videos. I don't want you to believe me, I want to convince you with the facts. This isn't all of the facts, just some of the most compelling. The videos... Oldest Archive is a satellite stereoscopic video from the Regenik Dianon with an archive upload date of May 19th, 2024. The description reads, Received March 12th, 2014. Source, protected. Alright, let's go ahead and see and make sure that he doesn't have any prior posts on this that give us a... T. L. D. R. A little bit on his post. So this was, well, he replies a lot. Let's go to his posts. We're looking at an overview. All right. So the one that we had looked at was from eight days ago. Let's just see if he has any the real story of MH three 70 all pertinent evidence and theories. That was 70 or seven days ago. Facts and theories to help the investigation. And okay. So this Reddit looks like started eight days ago or 10 days ago. And it says proof the Northern coordinates are correct and facts. Hey guys, this is Ashton from Twitter. I've noticed a lot of things have gotten destroyed here. Let's see if he gives us a quick synopsis here. And he does not. So let's jump first to the one that he says is all evidence and theories. Okay. So, so my J the general consensus. Well, not general consensus because I haven't done a census, but the idea here is that the original story was, was wrong, that this is a conspiracy and that it didn't just evaporate into thin air or fall into the ocean as everybody thinks. So this says Ashton Twitterson here, many people ask for a comprehensive list. Of the evidence of the M H 370 video. So I delivered most people's immediate reaction will be that the MH 370 videos are stupid or impossible, but they line up with all the facts to date. Don't believe me or trust me, verify the evidence. The U S government made a huge mistake recording this event. There's no excuse they can use to deny it. If you want to destroy all credibility and world governments here is. Your unique opportunity. Each piece of evidence can be verified either visually in the video from works of the community or my own investigation research. If it's not on the list, I either haven't verified it or don't find it to be credibly linked to the investigation. At this time, I'm limited in images that can be used or I would add more. I only put links and sources when it's a contentious point. When the time comes, all those who contributed will be giving credit. Quick disclaimer, they said This is not Q Anon. This is not to distract from Trump or Biden. This is not an alien invasion. This is not a hoax, misinformation, or disinformation. There are ufology elements, but that does not mean it is the explanation. This is the power of the community used to tell the story of the greatest conspiracy of all time. Is this the greatest conspiracy of all time? Note, I don't want to talk to any mainstream media. They'll never tell the truth. I'll talk to any alternative media or Tucker Carlson, Bill Maher, Joe Rogan. If these three can be convinced, I believe the world can be. Interesting. All right, so let's see if we can start with the theories, because I feel like he could have written this better to give us a brief synopsis first. But essentially. Oh, so that's what that video was. Okay, so this is showing that the Malaysia Air 370 was being circled by three unidentified objects in this crazy weird orbs all surrounding it and rotating. I did see this video. And then there's a zap, which is a cold event in the thermal because this was being picked up by thermal imaging. The zap accurately illuminates the clouds in the background and the foreground. All right. So. Let's go through this full. Let's go through this full deep dive. All right. So let's just go back to the top here because now it's starting to make a little bit more sense to me. There's a video that was circulating, which was showing and I'll pull it up here for you guys. So you can watch it if you're on YouTube with me here or on rumble or on the sub stack. This is the web archived video. Okay. Now, again, this comes from 2014 back when this airliner went missing. And here's a video. That they're saying is credible evidence of the Malaysia air showing, and here's my cursor showing there's the orb. There's three orbs that fly right around it in a crazy, crazy quick way that has no, wow. And they're, they're surrounding it like almost in a symmetrical triangle, rotating back and forth and in sync. Almost completely in sync and then rotating and turning back around and all surrounding this airliner, the same airliner that went missing suddenly back in 2014 and they go faster and faster and faster and faster, see if, and then disappears, what completely disappears. So we need to verify obviously the legitimacy of this video, but a lot of people seem to think it's legit. That was crazy. Okay. So one more time at the point where it disappears, the rotating, rotating, rotating, rotating, and it's gone big flash. And the airliner is just completely gone after being surrounded by these three orbs. Now there's a second video that comes from this, and we'll see what this shows us. That was the one that I saw, I believe. It says capture airliners and UFOs, UAV. And here's the thermal imagery. Alright, so here's the aircraft flying. Now why is a UAV this close to this airliner is a better question with thermal imaging. There's an orb, one orb, two orbs. Rotating, rotating, and leaving a thermal trail behind them, which is interesting. Oh, they're perfectly circling when you see the trail around them. Whoa, that's so weird. Super weird. And let's see if it shows it disappearing. Whoa, and it's Gone, dude, if this is real, and this if this is Malaysia air and the whole time I remember this, this was like, this was as big as the Titanic submarine situation. Like all those, you know, the three billionaires, this was an entire airliner just gone, gone. And I believe there was some high profile people on this airliner. But yeah, They we were looking for this for days and days and days went by and days went by and it should have been out of fuel and maybe they they landed here and maybe they didn't and maybe we just haven't their transponder went off whatever it was if this is the airliner and this is real this is one of the craziest conspiracies ever okay Now I'm in. Now I'm in. Alright. So, we got the background now. Filmed in 2014 with technology from 2014. Spy satellite videos, presumed from USA 229 is the earliest archived source. Received March 12, 2014. 3D stereoscopic video, technically a third video, which means we need two satellites in close proximity and on the same orbital trajectory. Satellite perspective changes eight times as do the coordinates, with coordinates visible in six of them showing us the location and direction of travel, south and east. A thermal layer of MQ 1C Grey Eagle posted by Rejiknion received, I don't know what the hell that's supposed to be a name or something received June 5th of 2014. And cameras on the equipment are made. For filming these events, it says this the thermal layer on a specialized electro infrared camera on the MQ one secret Eagle matches the mission purpose for this S I B R S and S I G I N T tracking boats and planes, electronic signals, monitoring intelligence and battlefield awareness, alternate sources and higher quality exists that point to none of these users being the original source. Maybe we can see if these are the same exact videos and higher resolution, but this is two minutes long. So I wonder maybe it's, it looks slowed down a little bit. That's probably why it's two minutes. I want to see it disappear like that. Slow motion. Gone. Whoa, that's wild. Okay it's a speculation. The original source may have come from a private forum or left on the dark web to be found. Videos show coordinates in them that change, but not when the mouse moves. Videos show satellite designations presumed to be N r o l 22 due to seeing 93 and thus ruling out threes. Not sure what that's supposed to mean. Satellite vis video explained by remote terminal access mouse drift. Explained by a JPEG wheel track ball that does not have the click activated screen capture of terminal running at some resolution. 30 frames per second. Citrix remote terminal running at default on 24 frames per second. Okay, very technical. So they're trying to figure out where did this video come from because you see on the screen a mouse going back and forth on top of it over top of the video. So I think that's what they're trying to do here. Remotely navigating around a very large resolution video playing at. Eight frames per second, or is that six? Six frames per second. Okay, so they're just trying to figure out where did this video come from? Plane is making a left hand turn and descending consistent with a circle formation consistent with capabilities of a 777 to 200. Plane's altitude is low based on how close they are to the cumulus cloud formations. Okay, true. There's a heat signature near the center bottom half of the plane. Yes, also true. There's an exhaust smoke coming from the plane, which is likely too low for contrails. Three orbs approach. The plane seemingly not affected by gravity. Yeah, that's that's what I said. It was just moving. It didn't seem to follow Newton's laws. Like it's just moving around in a way that our aircraft absolutely could not. Does the orbs have cold trails that are in front of the orb leading the orb? Yes. Saw that. Speculation. Orbs may be changing the pressure of the atmosphere or absorbing energy from it. Orbs entered a lock formation and begin a pattern and change patterns. Wow, they really broke down this pattern this way the way that they were rotating. Very interesting. And the two of them almost intersect and then change their formation and then go perfectly in sync. Perfectly in sync. It says the orb's pattern encircles the plane over time. The orbs may not be visible to the human eye. Both cameras are infrared. Huh, interesting. A zap occurs as the orbs bend and move towards the plane. The zap is a cold event in the thermal, and the zap accurately illuminates the clouds in the background and the foreground. Huh. So was this at night? The plane completely disappears after the zap, including the plane's visible trail. The MQ 1C is cropped out of the satellite video, just out of view. The user closes the window after the plane disappears, indicating this was not recorded in real time. It requires knowledge of classified military systems. Person who recorded or leaked these videos is likely in prison. How would a hoaxer know? They would never find a plane. Why this is M H three 70. Okay. Good question. How do we know that this is the plane, right? Is this says that it's the only missing seven 77. There was no debris field found official flight path. Has it running out of gas? Because there's nowhere else for it to go and the official search searched everywhere along the final ping art and along the flight path even the Nicobar Islands area, right? So the perfectly along this flight path perfectly around the time that it was flying and it's the exact aircraft type says the thermal matches the exact silhouette of a 777. Okay, yep, which is overlaid at the top of this image here. The color tone matches that of Malaysia Airlines. And satellite coordinates put it on the flight path of MH370 around... 640 Nicobar Islands, which is the smoking gun. Note, this is the suspected location of the turn into the South Indian Ocean. It has an imagery around that. It says NROL 22, released in 2006, is presumed to be a relay satellite due to its molnia. Orbit and clear view of the satellite that took the video, the smoking gun USA two 29 at the right location. Time apparent angle with a sister debris satellite capable of taking stereoscopic video at six 40 UTC. So it's just verifying that there was something in this location at that time that could have taken this video and says propose of. Signal intelligence and space based infrared systems is to track airplanes like this. Interesting, it shows a Lockheed Martin space based infrared system. And then it says the U. S. military had to have tracked MH370. We've proven they had the satellites in the area. US military confirmed the provided data to the intelligence community to help solve the mystery of MH370 and the freedom of information act about the DSP detection of the impact of 370 was ignored. Goes on to show the flight path. The pilot says good night. MH370 at 5 19 UTC at 17 21. 521 UTC MH370 disappears from all civilian radar due to both 8S, B and A cars being shut off. Captain Blelly suggests whoever was in command of the aircraft had intentionally achieved this by disconnecting all four electronic Electrical generators and APU. The radar says the plane makes impossible altitude changes from 5, 000 feet to 55, 000 feet. The radar loses the plane, but tracks an object they believed to be the plane as the satellite system resets three minutes and a log on request happens around 1724 plane changes directions. When the plane gets over Penang, the copilot cell phone pings, huh? The last Malaysian. Radar in between 1815 and 1822, 200 miles West by Northwest of Penang. Hmm. Very interesting. So it's showing basically the flight logs and the the pings of information that was being sent out from it. It says the witness interesting. So it's showing her blog post, Catherine T. It says the reported facts, their timing, and their identified geometrical relative position provided by Miss T are coherent, providing confidence in her reporting. So let's see this blog post while that's loading. She says, I thought it was coming to land. I felt it was traveling slowly. The aircraft was probably flying in L2 between 2000 and 100, 000 feet, held same tack for five minutes. The aircraft had considerably descended. from the first or from the first second of observation until the accidental change of tack. I saw that what looked like black smoke behind the orange glow, which resembled a contrail, but black, but I couldn't see any fire flames or anything like that. I just saw a plane glowing orange. Whoa. This comes from chat GPT, which has gases in the atmosphere, particularly oxygen. Nitrogen can glow orange under influence of electromagnetic effects, ionization, and other electron or energetic processes. The Aurors are a prime example of a phenomenon. Interesting. Says the glowing plane did not have any navigation lights. Alright, as it moved behind the boat, I could see the shape very clearly, which was a passenger plane. Here is the blog post. Which, quite lengthy. But maybe we'll have to send that out in the sub stack. Hmm. Interesting. So this woman says that she saw Malaysia Air right around the time that it disappeared. And wrote a blog post about it. It says other pertinent information. It says, my impression of the hall was that it was monocolor. I assume light matte gray. I doubted my sanity at the time. The plane circles around the boat counterclockwise from the Southeast. Hmm. The silence is sinister was the last tweet. It says other pertinent information to fake passengers using stolen passports that changed their appearance. What one possible passenger who bypassed security. And an SOS at 243 intercepted and reported only in Chinese news, which is a plane attempting emergency landing. Trump leaked a similar satellite photo in 2019 of USA 224, which launched in 2011, same year as USA 229. And then it says debunking the suicide myth. Everyone stands up for him, including officials and his wife. 18, 000 flight hours. Coworkers loved him. So it's talking about the pilot. No indication of suicide intent in the flight path. Had a huge custom simulator. Not standard model. Zahari's flight simulator had been used to pilot two data points in the southern Indian Ocean. Or to plot. And route found on the simulator closely matches MH 150 route to Jeddah with a diversion at the end of the South Pole. He was rostered to fly MH 150, impossible to disconnect all four electrical generators. Flying over his hometown is silly. It was an emergency and people would kick down the door before they would get knocked out. Depressurization is slow. In most emergency scenarios, the plane is not going to last until it runs out of fuel. Now it's going on to debunk the fact that the actual of the debris, no debris found by the official search or above or below water. It says the debris found years later was not consistent with barnacle growth. Only the Flay Perrin was matched with a non unique serial number. One person claims to have found 10 plus pieces, which was featured and contested on a Netflix documentary. Oh, excuse me. No one is allowed to inspect it. Okay. So it's trying to debunk it addressing debunks of the videos. Clouds do move just slowly. So it's just going over some of the things that people are saying about that. Hmm. Interesting. Plane disappears. So it says teleportation. Plane disappears from space time instantly. Intermediate black hole event. Which was it being cold? A witness sees a possible red shifted glow or orange glow Using a plane because it's in open space, huh? Teleportation may be to hide the plane Family's phones were proven ringing on Chinese TV for days Impossible if underwater or in another dimension, huh? Traveling forward in time doesn't break causality But traveling backward in time does See time Dilation says the science wormholes have been shown to be theoretically possible by at least three scientific papers They all show that exotic material is not necessary One paper argues a thin shell could be used to safely transport an object outside of space time Description of an intermediate black hole is consistent with the zap we see in the videos And one paper discusses needing to remove unwanted particles from the area The orbs may have been super conductive the orbs could be cleaning the area in Deucing the mouth of the wormhole and or acting as the barrier for passage. And there's a real patent for a magnetic vortex wormhole generator. What the fuck? No way. Let's pull that one up. Patents. google. com. A patent number is. U. S. 20030197093A1, and I will include this in the sub stack as well, because now we need a sub stack on this one. So this invention, which is called Magnetic Vortex Wormhole Generator. What? This invention relates to a magnetic vortex generator, which has the ability to generate negative mass and a negative spring constant, which, according to Einstein's general theory of relativity, is required in order to create a stable wormhole between R space and hyperspace. Whaaaaat? Very interesting, above my scientific pay grade. But I will definitely be reading through this another time. And maybe I'll highlight some stuff for you when I throw it in the sub stack. Here's the article that came from the last day of Malaysia airline passengers with stolen passports. Okay, interesting. Could these be the aliens? Alright let's wrap this up here. It says Diego Garcia, 1, 700 military and 1, 500 civilian personnel. Space Force has 86, 000 total servicemen and women. Okay. Sighting of a passenger plane 50 miles north of the base flying low in the early morning. I wish he would have put this together better. Pilot had Diego Garcia in his simulator. Not open to commercial aircraft. Enough space for a 7 77. So wait, what is this? Diego Garcia? Is this supposed to be like a a military base or something? What is Diego Garcia? Diego Garcia Base. It's gotta be a military base. Diego Garcia is a British atoll in the Indian Ocean. It is an island of the British Indian Ocean Territory, an overseas territory of the United States Kingdom or the United Kingdom. It is a militarized atoll just south of the equator in the central Indian Ocean and the largest of 60 small islands. Huh. Okay. Interesting. Interesting. Because there was a theory that it landed there, I guess. Okay. Alright, moving on here. Not open to commercial aircraft, has enough space for a 777, has underground facilities with a black vault Freedom of Information Act showing it may be a CIA black site. Message from Philip Wood saying he had held captive with a picture of EXIF data, placing it at Diego Garcia. Tens of millions. To black construction for dredging and other activities. Lockheed Martin contract for upgrading power and water photos of Diego Garcia, Facebook that look like the crew seems like the new area 51 Strava heat map and the small boat Harbor outside of the yacht club seems very active. Do D reassessed privacy's policies for the troops after Strava revelations in 2018. Hmm. Theories and speculation. The reason to do this must be large enough to warrant the risk unlikely to be about money. Shadow war for control of this technology, 20 semiconductor scientists on board. Whoa. So saying that basically the reason that they would have done this was that there was 20 semiconductor scientists on board Malaysia air and they wanted to either remove them, kill them, whatever. Or transport them to this base. Says video suppressed to hide hyper advanced technology not known to the public. Interesting. Video suppressed to hide non human intelligence. Filming had intent. UAV is too slow to catch a 777 and US 229 is only in position for minutes. So the only reason it got filmed, they're saying, is because they wanted to see this, and then somebody leaked it. Primary narratives. Ones with the most evidence, and we're getting towards the end of this. Set the satellite computer to stick to IOR 30 minutes prior to takeoff to make the plane difficult to trace. Three fake passengers possibly in on the hijack. Pilots and crew may be in on it. Flight changed to the last minute. Same data of Diego. 1721 UTC event is electromagnetic jamming plane is flown to Penang as a waypoint and for flies directly towards the coordinates. U. S. military equipment is waiting to teleport the plane to Diego Garcia. Deals are made with the crew and passengers, countries of the passengers. Maldives sighting just north of Diego Garcia in the early morning, Philip Wood resists, where is he now, witness protection. Who is Philip Wood? Debris later thrown in the ocean. Crew lookalikes found on Facebook at Diego Garcia. Motive is control of the very technology we see in the video. And the last portion of this says, UFO emergency event. All right, it says 1721 event disconnects all four electrical generators and APU transponders similar to what an EMP or electromagnetic interference may do damage to the plane will cause it to ground quickly depressurization may be slow fire could have started lithium batteries could be a source of fuel or interest in the UFO angle copilot cell phone pings over Penang. Indicating calling for help. Next logical place to land is in the water. Other narratives, USO, UFO teleports the plane to another dimension or location. Ooh. And motive of the cover up is to hide non human intelligence and technology from the world. Whoa. Decoy plate theory. Second 777 used to spoof the pings and track trick in Marsat. This event was to gain control of patents for some nanochips related to the Rothschilds. What? This event was to gain control of patents for some nanochips related to the Rothschilds. Huh. UFO is saving the passengers from their own doom. UFO is attracted to the lithium batteries, or the governments are working with the NHI for shadowy purposes. Interesting. That is a crazy one. Crazy one. He says, submission statement, the MH370 videos are the largest verifiable conspiracy of all time. This has been a cover up by multiple nations and multiple individuals. This conspiracy has the potential to break the minds of many, as well as destroy confidence in world governments. And this came from the same individual who said, Thank you for contributing, supporting, and getting the message out. Wow. That's a... Crazy one, crazy one. That's one of my most favorite conspiracies that we've gone over. All right. Wonderful. I hope you got something out of that.

This episode is one of the coolest moments of our lives: interviewing Jim Walmsley! We met Jim way back in 2016, and since then, we have been two of his biggest fans. Reconnecting more than 7 years later after his course record triumph at UTMB was such a joy. Jim opened up about everything around UTMB, from his specific training approach to the emotional side of getting vulnerable, "failure," and finally achieving his big goal. Jim moved to France with his partner Jess, with everything pointed at this one event. How do you respond to adversity when so much is on the line in a very public way? He stepped into the fire with vulnerability and courage, and there are tons of lessons for anything you care about in life. Topics: the emotional side of achieving his goal, overcoming low points and failures, pressure, training volume, his approach to workouts, going dark on Strava before UTMB, how his training has changed over time, nutrition during and after runs, his next big scary goal, and his legacy in the sport. We can't wait for you to hear this one! We love you all! HUZZAH!

This is terrible advice! Bad for teeth. Bad for long term health. All kinds of BAD. Unless you are a pro eat FOOD. Yes, eat carbs on the bike. But post race Haribo binging is just plain bad advice." However, consider what drink mix is! So, TIMING MATTERS. It's been demonstrated that we need a combination of both glucose and fructose to fully utilize the carbs we are taking in. Glucose and fructose are both sugar molecules known as monosaccharides, which are simplest forms of sugar.

Episode Sponsor: Dynamic Cyclist (code: THEGRAVELRIDE for 15% off all plans) Support the Podcast Join The Ridership Automated Transcription, please excuse the typos: [00:00:00]Craig Dalton: Hello, and welcome to the gravel ride podcast, where we go deep on the sport of gravel cycling through in-depth interviews with product designers, event organizers and athletes. Who are pioneering the sport I'm your host, Craig Dalton, a lifelong cyclist who discovered gravel cycling back in 2016 and made all the mistakes you don't need to make. I approach each episode as a beginner down, unlock all the knowledge you need to become a great gravel cyclist. [00:00:28]Craig Dalton (host): This week on the podcast. I welcome the founders of a grassroots cycling event in Southern Minnesota called gray duck grit. It's happening this upcoming October 6th and seventh. Yes. I said two dates in there because there's multiple distances. They're offering a 333 mile race, a 222 mile race. Uh, 111 mile race. And a 69 mile race. Each of these distances has a significance. That we'll learn about during the conversation with this trio. This is the first time I've had three guests on at one time. There's a lot of fun. I wanted to push the podcast out as early as possible. To give anybody in the Southern Minnesota and surrounding area, an opportunity to jump on this event. It looks like a lot of fun. It's presented by the angry catfish bicycle shop and has a lot of great local sponsors and supports a great cause. Before we jump in i do need to thank this week sponsor dynamic cyclist The team at dynamic cyclists offers video based stretching and strengthening and mobility routines focused on cyclists. As you can imagine from their name. They just recently dropped an updated injury prevention program. The one I like to follow, which is the six week low back injury prevention program. It's always timely. Getting an update from my friends at dynamic cyclists. Because it reminds me that I have absolutely no excuse. To not fit these 10 to 15 minute routines into my day. I waste 10 or 15 minutes doing something not productive for my body. So it's a constant reminder that I should be stretching. I've dedicated myself this year to try to strengthen my lower back. In particular to improve my longevity as a cyclist for these long gravel cycling events. And I've found the stretching routines, particularly the injury prevention routines of dynamic cyclists to be super helpful. It's very focused on what we need as gravel, cyclists for me. It's tight hip flexors. It bands everything around my low back seems to draw everything in a tight bundle if I'm not careful. So having access to a content catalog of different stretching routines has been super important to me and motivating to just kind of frankly, get off my ass. And do the stretching I need to do. If you're interested in giving it a shot, dynamic cyclist always offers free access to, I think, a week's worth of content. For you to check out what they're doing. I'm on an annual plan. If you're interested, just use the code, the gravel ride, and you'll get 15% off. You can do month by month. If you're just someone who wants to do it in the winter. Or they've got a pretty affordable annual plan. That's just kind of the easiest thing to do. To make sure it's always there. When you need it. So head on over to dynamic cyclists.com and remember the code, the gravel ride for 15% off. So with that business behind us, I want to welcome mark Jesse, Chris, Jesse, and Nate Mattson to the show. Hey guys, welcome to the show [00:03:44]Kris Jesse: Thank you. It's great being here. . [00:03:47]craig_dalton-q2xxdhaa3__raw-audio_gray-duck-grit-ii_2023-sep-06-1110pm_the_gravel ride pod: So let's get started by just, let's go around the room, maybe starting with Chris and just talk about, um, a little bit about your backstory and then we can get into, I'm going to blub it, flub it every time. Gray duck grit. [00:04:03]Kris Jesse: Great at grit. You got it. Um, I would love to start. Uh, it's kind of funny. Um, I fell into gravel cycling from, um, just seeing a post on Facebook. A friend of mine, he was going to ride this crazy ride across Minnesota. 20 some miles, um, called, um, the dam day across Minnesota. And, um, my background really is, uh, distance running. And so that is where I came from. Um, that's my passion. Um, I'm reaching Saturday. I'm heading to Utah tomorrow now, where it'll be my almost 40th marathon. And so I'm really, uh. runner at heart. And I thought, Ooh, I can do this, this gravel, uh, cycling. And so, um, after seeing his post, signed up quickly and then did my first 50 mile gravel ride and sold my race registration for that long one. So really it is, uh, that's kind of my cycling, uh, background a couple of years ago, but now just fell in love with it. Like it's my peaceful time. Um, uh, as you'll hear, Minnesota has amazing gravel, uh, to ride and to be, um, had, and so I just love it. I'm falling in love with it and kind of transitioning to just cycling. So that's my, my background. Um, [00:05:24]Craig Dalton (host): Well, I've got lots of questions about Minnesota, I'm going to table them for a minute to allow everybody to introduce themselves. So Nate, how about you? How did you get into cycling? Do you have a running background as well? [00:05:35]Nate Matson: Uh, wow. I do actually a little bit. Um, so I actually have a triathlon slash running background and, uh, it's kind of a curious fitness person and I, I fell into gravel cycling because I got injured and I couldn't run, so I leaned more into cycling. And through this one specific friend of mine, he, he also did the dam the day across Minnesota. And he was like, yo man, you should come out with me and we'll start gravel cycling together. So I got in with him, we started going out almost every weekend. And that is how I met Mark was actually on a gravel ride. So there you go. And, uh, I can run now, but I run a lot less and I cycle a lot more. [00:06:23]Craig Dalton (host): All right, Mark, your turn. [00:06:25]Mark Jesse: Yeah, I, uh, you know, Chris, Chris is a friend of ours who, who did sign up for the dam. Um, that was sort of my introduction to gravel cycling as well. Um, and, uh, it just. I went out and participated in the dam and 2019 that was my first big ultra endurance events and gravel cycling. Prior to that, it was a 50 miler with alongside Chris, as she mentioned, and it was. During that 2019 day across Minnesota that I realized how magical gravel cycling is and, um, you know, being in the middle of nowhere, not having any bearings as to what direction you were headed. All I knew is I was following, following this trail of blinking red lights and, um, it was, I would look up and all I could see were stars and it was one of the most magical. Moments I've ever experienced on a bike and yeah, go ahead. [00:07:31]Craig Dalton (host): Amazing. I'd love to just learn a little bit more about Day Across Minnesota, because that seems like it's, you know, it's the origin story of, for the three of you, and it sounds like you had friends who were drawing you into it. How long of a ride is it? And what is it? What is the experience like? [00:07:46]Mark Jesse: It's, it's a 240 mile distance. It starts in, it started, um, it is no longer for the record. Um, but when, when it was in existence, it started in Gary, South Dakota, and you would make your way across the state of Minnesota and you would end up in Hager city, Wisconsin, um, and Trenton Ragar is the. Race director. He is also the current race director of the filthy 50, which he was his first events. And, um, and I believe that started in 2013, um, uh, the filthy 50. So the dam was a five year event that took place and I participated in 2019 and 2020. [00:08:28]Craig Dalton (host): Okay. And how long does an event like that take a sort of average cyclist? [00:08:34]Mark Jesse: Well, you know, my first year, it took me 22 and a half hours. Uh, there is a cutoff, um, of 24 hours. So the expectation is that you would, to get an official finish time, right? You would need to finish, it starts at midnight on Friday and it would end on mid at midnight the, uh, the following day, Saturday. So that was the format. Um, and it was, it was pretty, it was a pretty amazing event. [00:09:00]craig_dalton-q2xxdhaa3__raw-audio_gray-duck-grit-ii_2023-sep-06-1110pm_the_gravel ride pod: And with those kind of early experiences that drew you into the sport, did you subsequently travel outside Minnesota to do events to kind of get an idea of what the flavor was in other territories? Or have you mostly been participating in Minnesota based events? [00:09:15]Mark Jesse: I. Haven't done a ton of official, uh, races or events outside of Minnesota. I did the Redfield Rock, Redfield Rock and Roll down in Iowa, my hometown or my home state, um, last year, and that was a heck of a challenge. Um, but I did a lot of other, um, I did some gravel cycling in Florida. I've done some gravel cycling in California and, um, mountain biking, uh, in Arizona and Oregon and places like that. Um, so I've done. Um, some cycling, some pretty long distances as well, um, over several days, but nothing necessarily official in other states as of yet, but I definitely plan on doing more of that because how can you not, there's just so much to be had now, right? [00:09:59]Kris Jesse: hmm. [00:10:04]Craig Dalton (host): to those longer Distance events right from the get go, whereas a lot of people come into the sports, you know, being conjoled to do their first 25 miler and then 50 miler, et cetera. So it's going to be interesting as we talk about your event, the distances that you offer as they're a little bit atypical from what I see out there in the world, with the exception of some of the, you know, the well known ultra endurance races. [00:10:30]Mark Jesse: Well, I think that has a little bit to do with our running background. Um, I, I also came from the running background. I, I have 17 marathons under my belt, I guess. Um, so the, our fitness level was there, I think. And so it was a, it was a, wasn't the difficult transition to make, um, because we had motors. We just had to. You know, adjust the legs a little bit and get those legs and those muscles used to pedaling as opposed to running. So it wasn't a difficult transition. And I grew up on bikes, typical 80s era child did, you know, so. You know, it wasn't, I was very comfortable on the dirt growing up in Iowa on a, on a giant RS 940, 12 speed on gravel was a lot more difficult than riding a high end carbon gravel bike on, on, you know, the gravel around most anywhere else. Right. [00:11:28]Craig Dalton (host): Yeah, yeah, for What made you guys think about coming together to put an event on? I mean, you've participated in events, you've seen the hard work, but there has to be something that really made you have this burning desire to put in the hard hours, the money, etc., to create an event. [00:11:48]Nate Matson: I'm going to give this to Mark, but I just want to say before he gives a very official answer that we were, we were just having a lot of fun riding our bikes together, you know, and, uh, we, we knew that we were riding with some really good people and we just loved, loved that the way it made us feel. And, uh, I saw marketing sort of a glimmer in his eye. So when, so when he started talking about this ride, uh, when he invited me to be part of it, it was not really, I mean, it was a surprise, but it also oddly made sense to, [00:12:26]Craig Dalton (host): Got it. [00:12:27]Mark Jesse: Yeah, that was, you know, I didn't know what was going to come of this idea I had to, um, consider doing something like this. Um, you know, it all, it all went, it all dates back to, so the, here's the official origin, uh, origin story going back to 2018, I was running the Anchorage. Anchorage mayor's marathon in Anchorage, Alaska, along with Chris here. And I was experiencing some heartburn, um, during the first few miles and it, and it subsided, I took some Tom's because Chris would, would carry Tom's with her as, as we run marathons. And so I took some times it subsided, but, um. And, and I ended up finishing, but I was really sluggish. Um, and when I finished the, the world was spinning. I thought I was going to kind of faint or pass out, but I just sat next to a food truck and gathered my bearings. But to make a long story short, about two weeks later, I went for a run, just a recovery run. Um, that was maybe a week later and I ran two blocks and I. Thought my heart was gonna pop outta my chest. It was just not good. And I knew something wasn't right. So I, I went to the doctor and, um, it, it, I just ended up having, um, essentially I was diagnosed with a 90% blockage of my coronary artery. And, and here I ran that marathon with that blockage. Um, so, you know, it was a miracle that I even survived it. And, um, had a, had a stent placement. Um, and I. Fully recovered, but it was during that when they were reading, anytime you go in for something like this, they, they read all the possible outcomes and that really freaked me out. I, I, and so I made this promise to myself that if I, if I make it through that. I want to focus more, not just on myself and to, you know, be in better health. It was a genetic thing for me. It wasn't because of my diet. It wasn't because of my fitness, I wanted to do more for others while I had this time, um, available to me moving forward and. I didn't know what that meant, but I knew that I wanted to do something. And so then it was just a couple of years later, um, doing the dam, I wanted to prove to myself that, Hey, I'm not, I'm not be, you know, I'm not too far gone. I can still do this. You know, I'm not, I don't, I didn't want to live my life in fear of never being able to participate in something I loved, which was that, that endurance, um, activity, because, you know, it was through running that I fell in love with endurance sports. Um, not just what it does for me physically, but it's, it's cathartic, it's therapeutic, you know, um, just like it is for people who ride bikes, you get out there and, and you forget, and you, and you solve a lot of the problems that you're, you're going through and that you're experiencing. Um, it's just a very special thing to experience. And so, um. That was the, the, um, the start of it really. And, um, COVID came and went, I saw some events come and go. And then the day across Minnesota, the, the gravel event that really, um, caused me to fall in love with gravel cycling, um, they announced Trenton announced that it would be their last event in 2021. And, um, or their last year of doing it. And I just felt like, you know what, there was a void that could be filled. And, and we are by. No means trying to be the damn, um, that isn't our intent, nor is that our goal. But I do feel like there is a demographic of, of cyclists out there that would truly appreciate what I appreciated in, in doing an event that is an ultra endurance events. So that's what we have created. And. Um, it started out by doing some Strava group rides with some of the friends that I, I, I followed on Strava. I announced it, um, a couple of weekly rides and lo and behold, I, I, I met some new people. Um, and I met Nate, I met a guy named Greg Simogyi, um, in the process. Sam and some other people. And, um, it was just a great experience just meeting these people who basically we like the same band, you know, and you're not strangers when you like the same band, you know what I mean? [00:17:00]Craig Dalton (host): Yeah. Exactly. Well, thank you so much for sharing that story, Mark, and thank God you're still around to share it. It is a takeaway, I think, for all of us to think about, you know, how big of a void, if you're an endurance athletic participant, how big a void it create in your life. To not be able to do that thing, because as you stated eloquently, for so many of us, it's rolling meditation. It's where we process a lot of things that go on in our lives. And I know as someone who's faced challenges in my life, like the idea of managing the rest of my life without endurance athletics would be a real difficult pill to swallow. [00:17:44]Mark Jesse: Exactly. I mean, when I'm having a tough day, when I'm stressed out, the very first thing I think about as, as far as how am I going to deal with this, this stress, this anxiety, this pressure I'm feeling, I got to get on my bike. I got to go. And it's, it's the pressure relief valve. Um, you know, radiators have them. Why can't we have them? Um, so, um, you know, it's, it's, um, you know, on, on those days I go out on my bike or when I was running, I'd go run and I finish up, you know, after 25, 30 miles on my bike, it's rainbows and butterflies after that. So, um, it feels good. [00:18:23]Craig Dalton (host): there something specific about Northfield, Minnesota? Is that where y'all live? Or is it just where you knew of amazing terrain? [00:18:34]Nate Matson: I'll, I'll take this one and Mark, please interject or Chris. Um, so Northfield is awesome. First of all, it's a great, it's a great little city that it's a college town with. Coffee shops and a lot of green space, and there's a great bike biking culture there. Um, but it's also close to what is known as the Driftless region, uh, of Minnesota, which basically, uh, it's not just Minnesota, by the way, it's Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin, parts of Illinois. And basically there were icebergs around this part of the world, uh, uh, during the ice age, except in the Driftless area, there weren't, so it's a very like specific little region. And that is full of caves and rivers and valleys and buttes and really, I think it has like more freshwater streams than anywhere else in the country. And it's just like this little pocket, this little area and Northfield sits right on the edge of that. So it's kind of like the gateway to this really beautiful sort of bucolic scene. And uh, it's a, it's a gravel cycling haven for sure. It's wonderful. [00:19:45]craig_dalton-q2xxdhaa3__raw-audio_gray-duck-grit-ii_2023-sep-06-1110pm_the_gravel ride pod: gotcha. So if you're a gravel cyclist in Minnesota, in sorry, Minneapolis, you might on occasion go down there as a starting point for a [00:19:52]Kris Jesse: Right. [00:19:52]Nate Matson: Totally. So Northfield, uh, is about 45 minutes. [00:19:55]Mark Jesse: from Minneapolis. So it's, it's [00:19:57]Nate Matson: So it's, it's a really, it doesn't take all day to get there. You just, you know, put your bike in the back of your car. You drive down, you can have a great ride. Mark and I were down there last weekend. So it's, it's an awesome place to be. And they have the infrastructure for cyclists there. [00:20:13]Mark Jesse: infrastructure and [00:20:14]Craig Dalton (host): all those geological attributes you described sound wonderful for gravel cycling. How does it actually translate to What the terrain feels like when you're riding, what kind of gravel, how would you describe it to people coming from out of state or out of the area in terms of how they would equip their bike and what they should expect? [00:20:33]Mark Jesse: it was really [00:20:34]Nate Matson: Well, it was really fast last weekend in parts, you know, uh, we were cruising. Uh, and at the, so when you're, there's also lots of farm roads and fields. So you can be. You know, being passed by combines and tractors, uh, one minute, then you can go down in these valleys. And you might experience something completely different. Uh, and, uh, Minnesota is known as a pretty flat state, but in the Driftless region, it's constant hills. Um, I think the, the, the 333 mile route that we have that, which Mark will talk about, I think that has almost 20, 000 feet of climbing. So, cause it's just constant up and down and up and down. And in those hills, like it can get pretty. Pretty chunky, pretty chunky. But what's really cool about the water runoff is the, the, a lot of the roads never really, uh, flood or wash out. You might get wet, but you won't have to carry your bike. [00:21:25]Mark Jesse: you won't have [00:21:26]Craig Dalton (host): Okay. So Mark was sort of describing how, you know, his passion for the sport, you guys started to get together. You find other members of the community. You have this interest in maybe putting on an event. What happens next? You form an entity. Do you set a budget? How do you get the original, the first version of the event off the ground? [00:21:50]Mark Jesse: Well, I, you know, we, we get, you get together at a bar over some drinks is how you do it. Right. That's, that's the right way to do [00:21:57]Nate Matson: That's what happened. [00:21:59]Mark Jesse: but before I did that, I, I reached out to Trenton, the filthy, filthy 50 and Dan race director. And I asked to get together with them and just go over my idea. And, and I figured if he liked it, then it gave me, it was going to get, and he may not know this and, and I apologize Trenton, but if, if he liked it, um, it was my green light to, to move forward. And, [00:22:24]Craig Dalton (host): can can I interject and ask a question about Trenton and the dam? Was it, he was just sort of tired of doing it or was there some logistical problem with doing the event? I'm just sort of curious what, since it was such a important event in your lives to see it end, if you understood what the end story of that event was. [00:22:45]Mark Jesse: I, I would, I hesitate to really comment. I just know that the, he had, you know, he's, he's, you know, uh, middle aged. He has a lot going on. Uh, he has, you know, a wife and kids, um, and he's, he's, he's a dad. And so, you know, he, he probably wanted. Maybe part of that back and, and already, you know, really 50. That's a very successful event. That's that sell, they sold out, I think, in, in less than 24 hours, a thousand registrations this year. So it's very popular. Um, and, and he's. Killing it with that event and um, you know, maybe he thought that it was something that you know, it isn't done done I don't think he he did announce that it was gonna be the you know, the last year But I get the impression he isn't done done with it. I have a feeling it could be resurrected at some point and the website still exists so and he does Encourage people to do it on their own, um, and, and he will record, uh, you know, um, any times in, in the record books or, you know, official times. So, you know, it is still a thing, um, it isn't gone forever, but, um, you know, I have a feeling it might come back. I don't want to suggest that it will, but, um, but yeah, that's, that's sort of, um, what I do know about, you know, it not being around. I, I don't want to. Speak for Trenton, but [00:24:12]Craig Dalton (host): got it. No, thanks for that with what I've seen about gray dot grit and the number of distances you do that first night at the bar. Maybe you had more than enough drinks because instead of just saying we're going to do 100 kilometer race. You actually offered a bunch of different distances and they're not short distances. [00:24:32]Mark Jesse: I'm a bit obsessed with the number three. I don't know if you could tell, um, you know, three ones, three twos, three threes, three is, you know, and numerology represents completion, uh, three strikes in a baseball game, three outs, um, nine, nine players, three outfielders. You know, nine innings, it's, it's, it represents completion. And, and I kind of being a baseball geek growing up, um, I, I, uh, it just made sense to me that, why not, you know, uh, 111, that's, that's no walk in the park. The 69 or that Nate and I rode last Saturday is no walk in the park. It's going to challenge you. [00:25:17]Nate Matson: We thought it was going to, you know, we thought it was going to be 70 miles. And we were both like, this is so much harder than we thought it was going to be. It was a reality check for sure. [00:25:29]Craig Dalton (host): So for the listener, just to put a pin in it, you've got a 69 mile race, 111 mile race, 222 mile race, 333 mile [00:25:39]Kris Jesse: Yes. [00:25:40]Nate Matson: Yeah. And as he's telling us these numbers over a beer, again, I could see his eye glistening. Like you could just kind of tell, like it's, it's happening, you [00:25:49]Mark Jesse: It's the mad scientist look. [00:25:52]Nate Matson: like, we can make this [00:25:53]Kris Jesse: And Craig, that doesn't mean I'm always like, what about a 50 miler? What do we think? And I'm not giving up that yet, that request. [00:26:03]Craig Dalton (host): I'm just imagining the kind of orchestration required, and I've seen the start times on your website from, I think it was 10 a. m. Friday for the 333, 9 p. m. for the 222, and then you start the next day for the 111 and the 69 Is the idea that theoretically everybody should be finishing around the same time? [00:26:25]Mark Jesse: Yeah, that was sort of the, the idea, right? Is that no matter when you started, you could be riding next to someone who just is a, is like they, they, they don't even know where they are because they're riding in the three 33 and, and you're, you're in the last 10 miles of your, your one 11 or your 69 mile route. Um, so to have that, you know, there is something special when. You know, by by the time you're coming around through the road to Burma, which is a section of the route just north of Northfield, um, When you, when you're coming back home, um, in the last 10 miles, um, there's something pretty cool anytime you come across someone on a bike and you know that they're doing it too, right? And so there's that instant bond that you have with that person and you've never met them before. You don't know their name and you may forget their name, but you're a brother now, or you're a sister of theirs because it's when you're out there, your family. [00:27:27]Craig Dalton (host): When you're starting at the, at the 333 mile distance. Are you offering aid stations? What type of infrastructure exists for those riders who are going to be doing it 24 plus hours? [00:27:43]Nate Matson: we, we definitely had aid stations and I would say last year was also a learning experience for what we need to offer writers and when in the sort of level of support that we should give them. Uh, I don't know, Chris, if you want to talk [00:27:56]Kris Jesse: I can, [00:27:57]Nate Matson: we learned a lot last year. [00:27:59]Kris Jesse: did. We did. I do the nutrition for the aid stations and I think what's unique about Great Oak Grit is that we do actually have, and we are thoughtful about our nutrition. I know, you know, and that's kind of what some gravel races are about is you're on your own and you know, we may supply a water stop. Or, you know, throw out some pizza or donuts or whatever. But, um, you know, so we are, uh, thoughtful about our aid stations and, um, have like, um, like peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and pickles and things like that, that we had last year. Um, this [00:28:34]Craig Dalton (host): so even if I'm out in the middle of the night somewhere, [00:28:37]Kris Jesse: Yeah. So you will, you'll find us. Yep. Yeah, we'll have an aid station for you. And this year, um, we are, we were sponsored, we're sponsored by Kodiak and so we'll have like protein balls and then NOM nutrition and they're right out of Utah, um, Salt Lake City, kind of a new hydration. And so we'll have that, um, we're going to be really purposeful about the, and thoughtful about that long distance. Distance, yeah, nutrition, and so we'll have these aid stations set up for all the distances and, um, yeah, we'll have things like that and the finish and start. So we're really excited that we're able to do that, [00:29:15]Craig Dalton (host): that's great. Yeah, it's interesting as you sort of think about the spectrum of like bikepacking, [00:29:19]Mark Jesse: packing [00:29:20]Craig Dalton (host): Grand Depart, just start and fend for yourself. To something like this, where maybe somebody who may be a little bit intimidated to go off by themselves and forage and worried about, you know, if they're going to get the nutrition and hydration they need to be able to do an event like yours and have that infrastructure around, maybe a good starting point for people who want to. Attempt their first ultra distance event. [00:29:43]Mark Jesse: their first [00:29:44]Nate Matson: definitely, [00:29:44]Mark Jesse: Right. Definitely. Yeah. [00:29:46]Nate Matson: we also have fire pits. So [00:29:48]Mark Jesse: Minnesota in [00:29:50]Nate Matson: in October is cold and you never know, uh, what the weather's going to be. It could be, it could be 60 degrees. It could be 30 degrees. So it, it, we really don't know yet. So we're prepared. Um, but we had, we started a couple of fires last year and that was one of the things that riders, especially the 333 riders, where they were. By the fire just sitting there, you know, uh, heating up and we could tell that why not let's keep doing [00:30:18]Craig Dalton (host): Yeah. Yeah. [00:30:19]Nate Matson: a vibe. [00:30:20]Mark Jesse: the year before our first event, um, so this would be 2021, yeah, 2021, uh, that very weekend, it was 70 degrees and sunny the weekend of, uh, you know, a year prior. So in Northfield and, um, you know, it ended up being a little bit colder than that. Um, but, um, and it, it does definitely impact at what. You as, as a cyclist and what you should prepare for. Um, but we're going to assume that we're going to have 70 degrees and sun this year. Um, and, but if we don't be ready, you know, [00:30:58]Craig Dalton (host): Was there, um, was there a reason for choosing an October event date? [00:31:02]Mark Jesse: it's beautiful. It's peak autumn foliage in Minnesota. So if you geek out on autumn foliage, if you appreciate, if you like Thomas Kincaid paintings or Bob Ross paintings come to Northfield in October, because you're going to see it. And you're going to see it like every other turn. It's absolutely beautiful. [00:31:23]Kris Jesse: that's another, in this region, this area, Craig, it's so beautiful. It's, it's just that fall crisp and you see, you know, you just look out in the leaves and the trees and it's really nice, [00:31:37]Nate Matson: It definitely has like Sunday morning PBS specials. You know, vibes when you're riding around, it's just really beautiful, you know, and there's tons of farmland and you'll be cycling past cows and [00:31:51]Craig Dalton (host): Is it a lot of, a lot of farm roads or are you getting onto narrower trails? [00:31:57]Mark Jesse: There's some pretty narrow roads. Um, there's some roads that you're going to go down and it's like, how, how do, how do cars pass each other on this road? You know, um, they're pretty, we have some MMRs, um, and, uh, yeah, some, that's the thing about it is despite how, um, remote it can be and how narrow some of the roads are, um, when it, it isn't a course that's going to punish you as far as the surface. Um, and, and we love unbound, um, but we're not going to, you know, if there's a storm the night before, you're not going to have to hike your bike three miles. Um, it drains very well. So, um, there's, there's the course, the distances are going to punish you more than anything. Um, the surface will not [00:32:42]Nate Matson: And the wind potentially, the wind can definitely be brutal. Um, and relentless until you get into a valley, then you get some, uh, some peace, but if it's a, if it's a windy day, that can be. [00:32:56]Mark Jesse: like any, like anywhere. [00:32:57]Nate Matson: any ride, but there's not a lot of tree cover in parts of the ride, so you're really open. [00:33:03]Kris Jesse: I always say if you're not cursing the race director halfway through your ride, they didn't do something right. [00:33:10]Craig Dalton (host): yeah, that's for sure. I haven't done an endurance event that I haven't wanted to curse the event organizer. Uh, man. So as you guys were thinking about creating this event, and maybe this goes to kind of Minnesotan cycling culture, were you thinking about, we're building a race and we want a competitive front end. We want lycra clad athletes to come all over this. Or did you have a different orientation? And maybe if it's differs from year one to year two, let me know. But I'm just curious because there's kind of, there's no right or wrong answer here. It's just curious, like what the intention was. [00:33:47]Mark Jesse: The intention was to get people to push themselves beyond what they think they're capable of. Because that's what my experience was. When I did the dam the first year in 2019, I had no idea if I could do it. And when I finished, I realized that was the hardest thing I've ever done in my life. And then like, two days later, I'm, and I was thinking to myself, I got to do that again. And I did it. And I improved by five hours on my time the following year. And I realized I can't be the only one who feels this way. I'm also not the fastest, you know, out there. I'm a middle of the pack type of rider. Um, there are people I know who are far faster than I am. I ride with them pretty regularly. Um, Our motto and, and our, our mindset is you should ride your ride, ride your ride. That's literally everywhere on our social media, on our website, because it isn't up to me to tell you, Craig, how you should ride. Um, coming from a different background, a different experience, life experience. Some people are overcoming cancer. I'm coming from my own health issues, as I've talked about. Um, people ride for, uh, uh, for every person out there is a different reason that that person's on a bike and we want them to take away from our event, whatever it means to them, if you want to race it, race it, take first, make a name for yourself, do something that, you know, is going to the event. Thank you. You know, make you happy. If you just want to finish, do that. If you don't know if you're going to finish, do it anyways. Challenge yourself, push yourself. Exactly. Even more reason to do it than the person who might podium. [00:35:40]Nate Matson: And Mark will be there to cheer on every one of them too, by the way. It's kind of a magical thing to see Mark at a finish line. It's its own meme waiting to happen because he's there cheering. Literally every person on who crosses the finish line. It's, it's so great. [00:35:58]Mark Jesse: I can't, I want to see every person finish. Like every single person. I truly, I truly give a damn about every single person that's out there. Um, I'm thinking about what they're experiencing. I'm hoping that they're experiencing what I experienced. I'm hoping they don't experience what I've experienced in the dark moments because you do go to dark places literally and, and, and mentally as well, but it's how we come out of those dark places that changes who we are and, and, um, and we're, we become better for that. [00:36:29]Craig Dalton (host): What's the rough breakdown between the different distances, if you guys had to guess, in terms of the number of participants? [00:36:37]Mark Jesse: it dropped significantly as, as we go, you know, you know, we're, we're like right now about half our participation, just over half our participation or registrations thus far this year with our new 69 mile route. We didn't have that last year. This isn't, this is a thank you and ode to those who did participate last year because we only had. 69 official registrations last year. So that's why we have a 69 miler. Um, it isn't for what maybe other people might think it is. It is because we had 69 participants for the record. Um, but when you go past and when you get past that, yeah, it starts to drop off. We have about half of that for the one 11 right now. So, um. And, and then, you know, the 222 I think is our crown jewel, quite honestly, because you get pretty deep into that driftless region and you're going to be riding overnight. Riding overnight is, is something I think anyone who's, who's thinking about, um, you know, going beyond that 100 mile distance. It's, it's just surreal. I can't even describe it. I can't find the words to describe it. It's so special to me. [00:37:48]Craig Dalton (host): I to say, that's the slippery mental slope I've been going down lately. I've done plenty of night riding. But I've never asked my body to ride completely overnight, short of a 24 hour kind of team mountain bike event. And there's a curiosity there from talking to other people I know about like, what will happen when I have to ride all night? [00:38:11]Kris Jesse: Right. [00:38:12]Nate Matson: and there's something just so spooky and beautiful about rolling out in the middle, uh, of the prairie, basically, or the farmland with crystal clear skies. It's the moon, the stars, and you're, you're just kind of like, to Mark's point, you just take it in and you never forget it. And then just seeing them kind of roll out into the darkness. We're all wondering, I hope this all goes okay for everybody because, because they literally disappear. It's amazing. [00:38:45]Craig Dalton (host): Yeah. [00:38:45]Mark Jesse: And, and that's why, you know, uh, where was I recently? I had on a damn jersey. Um, and I can't remember where it was. It was at an event and Oh, a young, a young guy came up to me. He's like, I want one of those pointing at my Jersey. And I'm like, Oh, I can't do it anymore. They don't, they don't sell them anymore. You can't get it. You know? And so, but he knew what having that Jersey meant. Um, and, and every, every time I see someone with that Jersey on, and this, this, the dam can't be the only event like this. Right. Right. But. Anytime you see someone with that kit on, there's a respect level. You know, it's kind of like You know, something that it's like you've been through, you've been through something together. It's a bond. [00:39:33]Craig Dalton (host): I think that's one of the interesting things in digging into your event. You guys starting out with these four distances, I think it creates sort of this aspirational journey for athletes attending to say, Oh, I'm going to do the 69. Oh, that went well. I think I can do the 111. I think I can do the 220 and just sort of inspiring people to go up. So not surprised at all to hear that kind of percentage breakdown between the different ones, but it's going to be curious to see how it changes over time. And from return participants, do they come back and do the same thing or are they changing their distances? [00:40:11]Mark Jesse: We found that there are, uh, a good number of people who, who didn't, uh, the one 11 last year and they're, they're trying for the two 22 this year. Um, or maybe they're doing the one 11 last year and they dropping down to the 69. Um, you know, it goes both ways, but I guess the, the, the idea behind it for me was. To especially this year with a 69 miler is to send a message that, Hey, we know we're not the 30 mile distance. We know we're not the 50 mile distance. There are plenty of other events and group rides that do offer that throughout the spring and summer months. We're towards the end of the season. Um, and we're hoping that people can maybe work up to that. And, and if the 69 miler seems like a lot, maybe we can be the final hurrah for you this year. Um, and, um, but you know, we're at the end of the season and, and people who are looking to do something beyond what they did last year, or maybe they haven't done a 200 miler this year or ever, maybe the 222 is what they're, they're, um, hungry for. [00:41:17]Craig Dalton (host): exactly. As the athletes complete the event, what kind of experience do they arrive to in Northfield when they hit the finish line? Are you building a kind of festival type atmosphere? [00:41:30]Mark Jesse: It is, it's definitely fest, it's definitely festive. Um, you [00:41:35]Craig Dalton (host): know we get Mark's hug first, [00:41:37]Nate Matson: It's Mark with a [00:41:38]Craig Dalton (host): then, [00:41:39]Nate Matson: bullhorn. It's Mark with a bullhorn. First of all. [00:41:42]Mark Jesse: yeah, uh, if, yeah, we should hand out earplugs as they're crossing the finish line, cause I feel like I am, they're kind of almost turning away from me, their heads to maybe, [00:41:52]Nate Matson: No, it's great. [00:41:53]Mark Jesse: I get excited about it, you know, I'm passionate about it, which is why we're here, but, um, because I've been there, I know what that feeling is and it's just like. Such a relief. I'm so glad this is over. And then it's just, we just want to be, we're all happy. One of the, one of the, um, one of the, my favorite moments is, is a gentleman who crossed from last year is, he crossed, he was one of the last people to finish. Um, maybe the last, within the last dozen or so people who finished and He finished, I, I ran up to him as I did with all the other, uh, finishers and I put my arm around him and his head was hanging. And I'm like, Oh, this, he's not in a good place right now. And maybe he's even upset. What's he going to say to me? How dare I, you know, kind of like I was expecting, expecting something negative. And he looks up at me and he says to me, you, you are proof that perception can become reality. And I had no idea. I like tears. I just had tears because I, I felt that from him, you know what that meant. And then he reaches in his wallet, who I've never carried my wallet with me, but this gentleman had his wallet on him and he reached in and pulled out a hundred dollar bill and handed it to me. He's like, I love what you're doing and I want to do more. And he said, you're changing gravel cycling. And obviously more tears. So that was very, it was very unexpected. Um, but it was, it was very special. And that's one of the moments I remember the most. [00:43:31]Craig Dalton (host): Amazing. If a listener was attending this year's ride in October. Is there anything else you'd want to share with them about how to prepare to be successful at the event? [00:43:46]Mark Jesse: That's a tough one. Be prepared to do something that you've never done before. Um, it's, it's as, as. Difficult as it can be physically, it's just as much mentally, but at the end, when you finish, you're gonna, it's gonna be one of the most rewarding experiences, I think, that a lot of people ever experience in their life. Um, you know, we do have big aspirations, um. We, um, we just want it to be, we, we're, we're sharing our, our, you know, our labor of love with the world we're, we're creating something, our own flavor of gravel. Um, this is our version of what a gravel, what, if we were to, you know, if we wanted to do an ideal event or create one, this is our version of it. Um, you know, we want to, we want to be all inclusive. We want to, um, you know, we give women 20 percent off their entry automatically just because you're a woman, because we want to create that diverse space. We want it to be an all inclusive event, as inclusive as we can be, despite the challenge, right? We realize that the challenge itself is not necessarily inclusive. It isn't all welcoming. Right. But we're hoping that people can understand and they get our message that, Hey, it's okay to challenge yourself and to push yourself. There's nothing wrong with that. Um, that's a healthy thing to do. And, um, That's, you know, that's what we want people to, I guess, maybe get out of it is, is that, that experience. And, um, as far as the prep, just, you know, put it in as many miles as you can. And, you know, quite honestly, we had, I had a cyclist email me the other day saying, Hey, you know, I signed up for this, this distance this year. And they, and they did participate last year. Right. But he's like, I signed up for this distance this year and I just don't have the training. I didn't, I'm not where I thought I would be. When I signed up, is there any way I could drop down to the, to the, you know, shorter, shorter of the next shorter distance and I gladly obliged him and, and made that accommodation for him. Um, you know, that's, that's what this is about is being able to, to, um, you know, do, do what you can do and, um, Yeah, let's ride your ride. [00:46:11]Kris Jesse: And watch the weather. [00:46:14]Nate Matson: I would say prepare for the weather too. Pragmatically be ready for anything almost, you know. Especially if you're flying in from another state. [00:46:24]Kris Jesse: Yeah. [00:46:25]Nate Matson: Be prepared for 72 or 32. [00:46:30]Kris Jesse: Or both. [00:46:31]Nate Matson: Or both! Yeah! [00:46:33]Mark Jesse: You could, there is a possibility of, of, yeah, maybe one day there, you know, we had a 20 degrees swing from yesterday's weather to the, to today. Yesterday it was in the 90s and, and today it was, I think it may have hit 70, maybe not. [00:46:50]craig_dalton-q2xxdhaa3__raw-audio_gray-duck-grit-ii_2023-sep-06-1110pm_the_gravel ride pod: Yeah. Well, guys, I love the energy of the three you are putting out there in the world. Um, if the event translates through your love of what you've intended to put on and what you're putting out there to the Minnesota cycling community and anybody who comes in to sample it, I'm sure it's going to be an amazing event this year and I can't wait to hear about it after the fact. [00:47:12]Kris Jesse: Thank you, Craig. [00:47:13]Mark Jesse: Yeah, thank you. We, we just. Yeah, we're just trying to build on, on everything that people here in Minnesota have already, you know, the foundation it's, it's rich, rich history of cycling with, with all the companies that have come out of here. Um, the, the cyclists, uh, you know, current pro cyclists as such as chase work, who's out there. He took second at gravel worlds just recently. Um, he's a great ambassador of the sports and he's a great, you know, home hometown talents. [00:47:42]Kris Jesse: my coach [00:47:43]Nate Matson: And her coach, [00:47:45]Kris Jesse: think he's a great guy. [00:47:48]Mark Jesse: but, you know, instead of just, you know, solely focusing on ourselves. Um, as athletes and endurance athletes and gravel cyclists, you know, we want people to know that, you know, this is a fundraiser. This is, you know, we are giving a portion of the proceeds to Frazier of Minnesota, which is a mental health nonprofit, and they, um, help families, um, who have, um, You know, children with autism, um, they have a school for those individuals as well. Um, they also help other people with mental illness and other disabilities. So, you know, when going back to, if I could just say just briefly, going back to why and, and that promise I made, that's the doing things for others. [00:48:28]Craig Dalton (host): Yeah, [00:48:29]Mark Jesse: Um, so yeah, you're gonna, you know, we, we do charge a fee. But know that every person involved with this event is a volunteer. I didn't pocket a dime from last year. In fact, I paid a little bit, you know, out of my own, out of my own pocket at the end of the day. But the point was, was we wanted to do something good for the community and give back in, in meaningful ways that, you know, in ways that are going to leave, you know, positive ripples throughout our communities. [00:48:56]Craig Dalton (host): Yeah. Thanks so much for making sure that you mentioned that because I was remiss and not asking you about the Frazier charitable donation and just another, another reason to flock to this event. Everyone. [00:49:10]Mark Jesse: Oh, well done. [00:49:13]Nate Matson: Uh, man! [00:49:15]Mark Jesse: We have a spot Open [00:49:16]Nate Matson: Perfect! Yeah! Thank [00:49:20]Mark Jesse: so, yeah, and, and people can find out more these, if they just go to www.gr grit.com. That's our website. You can find us on Facebook at GR Grit, Instagram on at gr grit. Um, and just check us out, you know, um, we just, we, we want people to, uh, It's just, we're just trying to share what Minnesota has to offer and, and continue that, that amazing community that is already here and share that with the rest of the world. [00:49:46]Craig Dalton (host): Thanks you guys. Have a great evening. [00:49:48]Kris Jesse: Greg. [00:49:48]Mark Jesse: Craig. Thanks for having us. [00:49:52]Craig Dalton (host): That's going to do it for this week's edition of the gravel ride podcast. Big, thanks to Nate, mark and Chris for coming on and telling us all about. Gray duck grit. It sounds like an amazing grassroots event out there in Minnesota. I love the challenge of those various distances. I wish there was something like that in my neck of the woods. Just something that year after year I could go back to and kind of up the distance and challenge myself in different ways. You'll hear from another upcoming podcast. I'm super curious about riding overnight. As I mentioned briefly, I've done it in some 24 hour. Mountain bike races, but I've never fully written the night. I've always sort of been part of a team and jumped in and done a lap or two while it's dark out. Anyway, go check out gray dot grit on the website. You can learn everything you need to know. And if you do it, make sure to ping me. I'd love to hear about it. Big, thanks to this week. Sponsored dynamic cyclist. Remember use the code, the gravel ride. You get 15% off any of their plans and they've got a free one week trial. So no excuse other than like me laziness for not stretching, but give it a try. I think you'll enjoy it. If you're interested in supporting the show, ratings and reviews are hugely appreciated and go a long way in the podcast game.

Esperamos que nos acompañéis en este Tour tan especial. 📍 Encuéntranos en... ➡️https://alacoladelpeloton.es/ ➡️ https://www.twitch.tv/acdpeloton ➡️https://youtube.es/ACDPeloton ➡️Grupo de Telegram: https://t.me/familiaACDP ➡️Twitter: twitter.com/ACDPeloton ➡️Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/acdpeloton/ ➡️Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/alacoladelpeloton ➡️Strava: https://www.strava.com/clubs/ACDpeloton Escucha el episodio completo en la app de iVoox, o descubre todo el catálogo de iVoox Originals
