ABOUT THE EPISODE

Bobby Wintle is co-owner of District Bicycles in Stillwater, Oklahoma and the main instigator at the Land Run 100. He was out at Sea Otter doing some work, having some fun, and spreading his endless energy. He sat down with Ben and chatted about life out in the Tour Divide, giving hugs at the Land Run, owning a bike shop, and more. Be sure to mark your calendars for March 15-16, 2019.

About the Land Run 100:

“These roads have a depth of history, and a soul. They are unique, unforgiving, ever-changing, but always red. On April 22, 1889, cannon-fire signaled the beginning of the first Land Run in Stillwater, OK, the home and start/finish line of the Land Run 100. At the heart of this event are some of the most rugged and daunting, beautiful and memorable roads in the Oklahoma country. They take on a personality of their own. But they are also marked by the people who travel far and work hard to ride them. Making yourself a part of these roads makes them a part of you.”

If you have any questions, comments, or have an idea for an episode, please feel free to contact us anytime.

ABOUT THE EPISODE

Erik de Brun is one of the co-owners of Redshift Sports. He took some time while at Sea Otter to chat with Ben Redshift as a company, the products, his background, pole vaulting, and more.

About Redshift Sports:

"Redshift Sports was founded in 2013 by Stephen, Erik, and Scott with the goal of making components that help cyclists and triathletes ride further, faster, and more comfortably on the bikes they already own.  We are a small group of mechanical engineers who happen to be avid (if somewhat average) cyclists and triathletes.

Prior to founding Redshift Sports, we managed (and still manage) Ripple Design LLC, an engineering consulting and product design firm in Philadelphia.  Ripple Design works on a wide range of products, from medical devices to large-scale landmine clearance equipment.  We drew on this extensive design, prototyping and manufacturing experience to bring our first product - the Switch Aero System - to market.

In June 2013, we launched the Switch Aero System on Kickstarter, a crowd-funding platform that lets independent backers jump-start small businesses and projects.  The response was overwhelming - people loved the idea of maximizing the versatility of their existing road bikes.  We raised 2.5 times our original funding goal, which allowed us to bring the system to market.  We can't thank our Kickstarter backers enough - none of this would have been possible without their support!  You can check out the original Kickstarter video below - the system has evolved a lot since those first prototype units!

In late 2015, we launched our second product - the ShockStop - on Kickstarter. The response was again fantastic and with our backers help we were able to bring the ShockStop to market in 2016."

ABOUT DIRTY KANZA

From the Dirty Kanza website: "Dirty Kanza Promotions was founded in 2006 by Jim Cummins, with the assistance of fellow cycling enthusiast Joel Dyke. At that time, gravel grinding was just beginning to catch the interest of the endurance cycling community. However, Jim had grown up in the Flint Hills of east central Kansas and had been riding gravel for decades. Inspired by some of the early gravel grinder events… and convinced the Flint Hills had the best gravel to be found anywhere in the world, Jim and Joel decided to create Dirty Kanza 200.

Initially, these two gravel aficionados had no idea the extent to which this whole gravel grinding thing would grow, nor did they give it any real thought. That wasn’t what motivated them. They both simply felt their lives had been enriched through cycling. And DK200 was their attempt to give back to the cycling community.

Since then, the popularity of gravel grinding has exploded and is now the fastest growing genre in the cycling industry. The popularity of DK200 has grown too, from 34 participants in 2006, to an anticipated 2,200 riders in 2017. And while that growth has brought with it a few changes to our format and the way we have to manage certain aspects of the event, one thing has remained constant… DK200 is a grass-roots event, organized and managed by folks who are passionate about cycling, and done so for the primary purpose of providing life-enriching cycling experiences for our event participants."

Yuri Hauswald joins the podcast to discuss his gritty comeback win at the 10th edition of the Dirty Kanza 200 in Emporia, Kansas on Saturday, May 30. He combined years of successful endurance training and racing, his first cycling coach and months of hard training, and a lot of personal motivation into an exciting win.

In this episode he discusses all of the aspects that went into it. Listeners are treated to some great storytelling and gut-wrenching emotion. You've likely read stories and interviews about the win, but this episode is your opportunity to hear the full story and get the details well beyond the written interviews.

Guitar Ted and Ben start the episode off with a recap of their recent races. Guitar Ted had a fun and interesting time at the Dirty Kanza and Ben finished 5th at the inaugural 120-mile Badlands Gravel Battle in the North Dakota Badlands.
