June 8, 2014 - Neil sits down with one of the most experienced bikepackers out there. It's an interesting discussion that covers a wide variety of topics, from Jefe's history in mountain biking and bikepacking to next week's Tour Divide.

 

They chat about a lot of the thoughts and details about racing long distances and listeners have the unique opportunity to get inside the head of one of the very few who has raced the Colorado Trail Race and Tour Divide several times. It's also a very interesting discussion because Neil, the host, is a very strong young rider who is coming into his own and Jefe is a veteran who has seen a ton and continues to push his boundaries. Listen in to hear what Jefe's advice is for Tour Divide rookies too!
