Most 19 year olds are more concerned with finding people to buy beer for them than finding the next ultra to run. On this edition of Elevation Trail, Gary talks with Patrick Caron, a New England kid who would rather be on the trails than go to a party. We’ll find out why he has chosen to run every day, race every weekend, why he didn’t have a high school graduation party, and how sustainable is his race schedule. We’ll also talk about his 14:51 effort at the Ghost Train 100 mile ultra, his second place at the Eastern States 100, why Ian Sharman hasn’t talked to him, and the dangers of running with bacon.
Helen and Stef Wyman are advocates of cycling, cyclocross, and gender equality in sport. Her list of achievements is impressive, with a Third Place at the World Championships, two European CX championship titles, 9 British national championships, and numerous race wins in World Cup events. More impressive is her work on bringing cyclocross to the masses, running camps, encouraging younger riders, sitting on the UCI Cyclocross Commission, and now having a development team in the NEXT-Wyman project. It was great checking up with them, hearing about their travels in the US, their frustrations with a slow rate of change, and their hopes for future directions in cyclocross.
We are honored to have them on the show and hope you enjoy it.
What a pleasure having Mike Aish back on the Elevation Trail Show! One of our favorite
guests. We dive into his gritty Leadville 100 mile run, stunning 100 mile mountain bike race, thoughts on doping, and his future, which looks like it will include Gary and I managing Mike’s entry into the Worlds Masters Games in New Zealand next year, representing the elite Elevation Trail Team.
Hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
Oh, crap, clean up the studio, we have a guest!
Join us on Elevation Trail as we hang out with “faux” Pro cyclist, Rebecca ‘Becca’ Fahringer. We talk about women in sports, women showering, and naked women advertisements. Fun show and learning experience, in general.
Join us here on Elevation Trail as we chat with Alisha Edmiston, former pro cyclist, elite runner, and object (one of) of Gary’s stalking activities. It turned into a fascinating show of figuring out who we are, what makes us happy, and how we see ourselves. Oh, and we chat about my gym’s mens locker room, Gary’s starvation diet, and tips on how to meet girls.

Lyndon Poskitt from Races To Places takes time out of his 100,000 mile, 50 country three year journey around the world to sit down with us at Elevation Trail for a candid conversation about his racing, the project, and his insights into different cultures and people. It’s a true pleasure to have him on the show. Hope you enjoy it.
