There's no arguing that your Leadville 100 success depends on hard work, skill, nutrition, and preparation. But this episode, we talk with the genius engineer / CEO of Silca — Josh Poertner — about getting free speed on the course. This is a great interview with lots of practical advice from the guy World Tour Pro teams go to when they want to get faster.

We’ve also got good nutrition advice you can use right now as we’re just under a month ‘til race day, and Ryan Morse of checks in with guidance on your wheels.
