We’re about 3 weeks away from the inaugural Steamboat Gravel race, and Coach Frank recently pre-rode the critical 100 miles of the 140 race. From pacing and training to equipment and course conditions, we’re here this week on the podcast to break down everything you need to know about key preparation for this event.

In the podcast, we cover:

  • The 3 “tricky” sections of the course and important notes about road conditions and climbs/descents
  • What equipment to run: shoes/pedals, tires, and hydration and food systems
  • Training: what specific training protocols to be done in this final block before August 18th
  • Why Foundation Training will be a key factor: https://stream.foundationtraining.com/categories/freebies
