There are three types of people in the world…
1. those who - wonder what happened
2. those who - know what happened, but were not involved
3. those who - make things happen
This week’s guest Brad “T-bone” Knox is in that third category. Years ago, he decided to transform himself into an elite athlete, and he did it. In this episode T-bone joins Josh & Mike to discuss his path to qualifying and training with Tenac coaching for the 2023 Leadville 100 MTB race. The race takes place on Aug 12th, 2023 (45 days from publish of this episode.)
What’s the Leadville 100 MTB you ask? By some, it’s been referred to as the “Tour De France” of Mountain Biking. Category: Ultra Endurance Length: 105 miles. Starting altitude: 10,200 ft. Lowest altitude: 9,200 ft. Total elevation gain: 11,928’. Fastest time ever 5:58 minutes. Lance Armstrong won it in 2009.
Brad’s journey is extremely interesting and this episode is full of laughter and good times. You’ll dig it.
