We also spend some time talking about finding the balance between life and racing. Dan Timmerman has taken a couple hiatuses from racing, the second time to go off into the woods with his wife, build a yurt to live in, and teach primitive skills. Not to be outdone, Wells was racing as a pro while also holding down a career as a carpenter. Truly two blue collar racers with great stories.

For those of you who like a classic cyclocross debate, we don’t talk about cantis vs. discs, but we do spend some time talking about tubeless technology and how it compares to tubulars.
