By now you know whether you got into the 2024 Leadville 100. If you did (and even if you didn't), now is the time to do a baseline FTP test, so you can measure your progress through the season (and yes, Fatty reveals his own current FTP). Coach Jonathan Lee of TrainerRoad -- a favorite friend of the show -- joins to talk about the why, how, and what of FTP testing.

We also introduce a new segment for this new season: Fatty's Tips for Finishing. With 25 Leadville 100 finishes (and one DNF) ranging from as slow as 11:27 (1998) to eight sub-9-hour finishes (including six singlespeed finishes and one singlespeed win), Fatty has learned a thing or two (sometimes from successes, often from mistakes) about how to finish the highest, hardest, one-day race in America.
