Eszter went from a fairly timid youngster and was a swimmer until picking up mountain biking at the University of Colorado.

Since getting started on the bike in college, her adventures have been big. She's won 24 Hour nationals, set the record at the Arrowhead 135, and holds the women's record on the Tour Divide. She shattered the women's record at the Iditarod Trail Invitational this February and tells listeners about her thoughts about a trek to Nome in 2014.

Listen in as she talks about the 2013 Iditarod Trail Invitational and how she really wanted pad thai noodles, clam chowder, and chicken noodle soup!

Bob McCarty joined Drew to discuss his extensive experience in mountain biking, racing at the pro level with his new team, training, and his mountain bike skills training business down in Florida.

 

Who is Bob McCarty?

He is someone Drew has looked up to as an up-and-coming mountain biker back in 2005. Bob has been racing mountain bikes at a high level since the 1990's, including an 18th overall in the 2013 ProXCT series. He also runs a well-established Mountain Bike Skills Training business in the Miami area called McCarty Training.

Guitar Ted shares what he found at Interbike in Las Vegas. Three areas of cycling have really taken off.

 

Fatbikes have blown up over the last three years and now companies are commonly offering carbon goodies, including forks, frames, and rims. Many other fatbike options have also come to market, including tires, gear, and other components. This year the 27.5 inch wheel size has taken over this year's news and it has become a mainstay in many company lineups. In the background, the gravel riding scene has been experiencing huge growth in rides and races filled to capacity.

 

Listen in to hear a discussion about what Guitar Ted saw of each of the three groups in Vegas.
