If you’ve got a crew — and most racers do — you really want to make sure you’re all on the same page. S1E8 & S1E9 of this podcast were all about creating and executing your crew plan. 

This year, though, Hottie's crewing for Fatty, and so we're having a little meeting on this show — like the one every racer and crew should have. We’ve put together a shared google doc with Fatty's projected splits, everything he wants at each crew station, and a running to-do, to-buy, to-ask, and to-remember list for both racer and crew chief — our working Leadville racer / crewer bible. 

You can see this evolving doc (yes it's the actual live working version and will change right up to race day) — and make a copy of it for yourself to use for you and your crew — at this link

This episode also has crucial info for any racer (and that's most of us) traveling to Leadville. Roxanne Vogel has important info on nutrition timing for those last meals before gun time and sixth and Harrison. 

Last but not least, Ryan Morse gives you some very relevant guidance on brake bleed, and we have a great conversation with Sterling Mudge of Cloud City Wheelers — one anyone who loves mountain biking in Leadville will want to hear.
