Ah, the San Juans in summer. No better way to enjoy them than signing up for a 100 mile race. The Telluride 100 features 100 miles of MTB fun just one week after the Hardrock 100 run. You’ll be drunk off altitude and delicious beer.
Welcome to Elevation Trail’s Yard Sale show. Today, Gary and I talk with Thom Parsons of dirtwire.tv, a blossoming video media site covering the sport of MTB racing and cyclocross. Hope you enjoy the show!

Welcome to Elevation Trail and the FM Show. This week Gary David and I discuss sociology stuff like asking what makes an activity a sport or play. We also talk about the pitfalls and benefits of organization in sports, rules, morals, and growth, while fitting in a little about the San Diego 100 coming up, Skyrunning’s Ronda Dels Cims 170k in Andorra (Lizzy Hawker is out of race due to injury), and other stuff. It’s a long show!

Welcome back to Elevation Trail and the FM Show with Footfeathers and Matt. Today we recap my big race weekend in Gunnison Colorado, chat about Rob Krar, Western States, Sky Running, and other picnic-like festivities in our sport. Matt curses, so put the earmuffs on the kids.

Welcome to Elevation Trail and the Footfeathers Show. It’s a great time to be a fan of ultrarunning right now. One of the biggest sparks igniting the fire in the competitive scene is Rob Krar. Sit back and enjoy our chat about his racing, his injury resulting in surgery with a long recovery, his fastest known time (FKT) for both the R2R and R2R2R in the Grand Canyon, and his goals for Western States 100. Super nice guy who happens to be in the midst of redefining competitive ultrarunning.

Don’t miss tomorrow morning’s Footfeathers Show here on Elevation Trail. Rob Krar joins me to talk about growing up in Canada, moving to one of the hottest places in the US, his relationship with the Grand Canyon, and his plans for Western States. Quiet guy off in the corner? No longer.
