The podcast focus on the theme of suffering (unsurprisingly) as a means to confront fear, challenge limitations, and get a better understanding of oneselves. They’ve already hit a good list of guests from Davis Phinney & Connie Carpenter Phinney to Neal Henderson, the man behind many of The Sufferfest workouts. Check it out on SoundCloud, iTunes, or via TheSufferfest.com


  • Design a custom fi’zi:k saddle until Sunday, get free matching bar tape – The deal is pretty much as straight forward as it sounds. To celebrate a their full Fizik outfitted podium at the Tour de France last weekend, the saddle (among other things) company is offering a free set of bar tape with every custom saddle ordered until Sunday, July 30th. Configure your custom saddle online in their webshop at: Fizik.com

  • Save up to 30% on limited selections at Rapha – Rapha’s annual summer clothing sale is going on now.
