Podcast idea ft Kona qualifier

Sorry if there is already a post for ideas, I did search and couldn’t see anything.

Following Kona this year I would like to see a rider profile of someone trying to qualify for Kona for the first time and then see they get on throughout the year.
Episode 1 before christmas we hear about them, where they have come from, what their plans are for the year ect.
Episode 2 just before their qualifying race discussing their trianing and race day plans
Episode 3 a review of qualifying and what they will change before Kona
Episode 4 in Kona as you normally do
Episode 5 post Kona and what they learned


Thanks so much for the suggestion @Simo429! This could be a really interesting segment I think.

I will pass this onto the Podcast Team :+1:

What do you want to see? I have 3 years of Kona.
