Every year, there is someone in the Leadville 100 who is the last person to finish—the “Last Ass Over the Pass.” That person is guaranteed to have a story to tell. In this episode, we’ll hear his story.

We'll also hear from Bob Forster, Physcial Therapist and Coach, on finding more horsepower in your engine (so you won't be the 2019 Last Ass Over the Pass).


Big thanks go to our sponsors:

  • Floyd's of Leadville: We’re very excited to have Floyd’s of Leadville as our presenting sponsor; check out Floyd’s at and use the code FATTY at checkout for a 15% discount on your first two orders.
  • Shimano: You already know they make the best components, drivetrains, and brakes. You know how many mountain bikes Fatty and The Hammer have between them? Around half a dozen. You know how many of those bikes have Shimano XT or XTR brakes? All of them. Coincidence? I think NOT.
  • Banjo Brothers: Fatty and Hottie are both such huge fans of these tough, practical and affordable bike bags and packs. Go to and get 20% off your order. And you know what? Be sure to pick up a Deluxe Seat Bag, size Medium while you're there. You'll be amazed at how much it can hold, and some day you'll be glad that bag is holding it.
  • ENVE: The best wheels — for road, gravel and (of course!) mountain bikes. If you want a faster time at Leadville, the best upgrade you can make is a great wheelset. And the best wheelset you can possibly own for the Leadville 100 is the ENVE M525
  • The FeedFebruary is a great time to try new things, and our sponsor The Feed is exactly the right place to go experiment. Head on over, chat online with one of the experts — tell them that the Leadville podcast sent you — and see what they recommend for you and the goals you’ve set. Get a great price on a pack curated for Leadville racers. Go to for our Leadville pack, and be sure to use the code LEADVILLE15.
