Great episode. Congrats on winning the championship!


Thanks for coming on the podcast, Egert! Tons of fun digging into nerdy TT details :wink:


Really great podcast! Congratulations on your success Egert. I can relate to your experience of going from no fan to having a fan while training indoors. Just got a fan last week and it’s surprising the difference that makes.


Greetings on the title from neighbouring Latvia :slight_smile:
