After a six month vacation from producing a show, Gary and Tim return to Elevation Trail with an update on things and delve a bit into what motivates people to do or not do activities in their lives. Really, it’s just another conversation about life in general.
Some people quit a sport for no apparent reason and others linger in their sport well beyond their prime. We discuss that topic along with everything from motocross racing to injuries from doing good deeds. We also announce the winners of the hat/beanie giveaways.
Share with your friends (if you don’t like them and want them out of your life).
World class cyclist, Garry Millburn, joins us today on Elevation Trail. He’s currently on a world tour with his new wife, Fiona, visiting beautiful areas while racing bikes. Four years ago he was involved in a head on collision with a car that nearly took his life and left him with a couple years of rehab. Now he’s back pushing the limits in races and riding.
Gary and I also talk a bit about PEDs in sports and his recent (very neat) videocast discussion on the same topic.
Thanks for listening.
Show is up. Hope you enjoy it.

Join us here at Elevation Trail as we welcome elite cyclist (mtb, road, gravel, cyclocross, tandem tricycling…), Adam St. Germain, who also works with Specialized Bicycles. A 13 lbs, $20,000 road bike? We’ve got you covered. Stalk Adam at these locations.
Join us for a chat about a lot of things, including being new to a sport.
If you want one of the new high quality vinyl Elevation Trail stickers, just donate at least $11. If you want an Elevation Trail hat, $25. Any amount is much appreciated!
Gunnison Colorado is his home. The trails are where he dominates and has done so for over 20 years. Dave Wiens, fresh off his 50th birthday in September reflects on a career and life in mountain biking and brings us up to speed on how it has evolved into a job (many jobs) that he still loves doing. Not many people in the world can say they beat Lance Armstrong head to head in a grueling race. Dave can. The list of accomplishments is too long for me to write here in the intro, so please listen to the show and soak up one of the greatest and most humble athletes to ever swing a leg over a mountain bike.
Special bonus! Check out this 8 min video of a 1992 race in Crested Butte. You’ll never guess who won it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZuGaCAO8KCc
And! Here’s the link to the Growler MTB race in Gunnison
Thanks for joining us at Elevation Trail with me, Tim Long, and chicken whisperer, Gary David. Both Gary and I have been forced to reevaluate our participation in running due to a very acute injury (broken bones) and chronic injury (Achilles pain), so we explore what it’s like and how our perspectives have changed and evolved. We also cover a bunch of other stuff you don’t want to miss.

Here at Elevation Trail we’re proud to announce we’ll be doing LIVE shows starting this month. The cool part, aside from getting the likely chance of me screwing up or swearing, is that you, the listener, will be able to call in with comments, questions, and generally participate in the discussion. Pretty cool!
The live shows will still be recorded and available here on our site and on iTunes for you to download and enjoy on your next run or long drive. Looking forward to hearing from you folks “on air”…
