I tend to agree on the biology thing. The replies by Chad tend to eat up a good chunk of the podcast since there usually is a TON of info on these types of topics.
There are a fair number of user-submitted questions that seem to be better addressed by your doctor or could be found by going through the effort of reading studies yourself—what Chad just ends up doing.
Instead of regurgitating information about TR plans and how to follow them, I would like to hear more deep dives into race strategy, training strategy, training for average Joes, and talking about things that actually make you faster. Don’t get me wrong, there is already a lot of this, but there can never be enough.
There is a lot that can be said about discussing the intricacies of training for all types of cycling disciplines. For example, CX racing was hardly scratched this year on the pod. This is a bummer because it’s probably the most accessible and safest forms of bike racing, but it’s also a discipline that requires a fair bit of knowledge and prep.
Honestly, I think @Nate_Pearson, @Chad, and @Jonathan have an aversion to cyclocross hence whey they don’t discuss it much and don’t race it. They don’t participate because they can’t handle the efforts, the pain! It’s too much! HTFU, gentlemen! Just playing, but seriously, it’d be nice to hear more about CX on the pod.
