Matt Bottrill is one of the most successful time trialists in the UK. He first appeared on the podium of the British National Championships in 2000. He has appeared on the podium five times since that time, including a silver showing in 2013. He has won over 50 national medals and 500 races. 2014 was quite possibly his most prolific year ever as he took the UK National 50, 25 and 10.  He was most recently awarded the prestigious Bidlake Prize for his outstanding 2014 season.

I found John Crook (http://www.crookscycleright.com/ccr/) on YouTube (of all places) when struggling with road bike fit. John has a series of videos which question some of the "rules" when positioning someone correctly on a bike. John was kind enough to go through his own process which is based on comfort and balance. Here are the links to the video's. I think his basic advise pertains to time trialists as well.

Steven Abraham has embarked on a remarkable endeavor, as during the 2015 calendar year, he is attempting to break Tommy Godwin’s 1939 record of completing 75,065 miles in one year. The Ultra-Marathon Cycling Association is validating Steven’s attempt, and Chris Hopkinson, a legendary long distance cyclist in his own right, is the official Crew Chief. You can contribute to the effort and follow Steven’s progress at http://oneyeartimetrial.org.uk/

Michael Hutchinson, author of The Hour and Faster, is back to preview the multitude of attempts, both female and male, on cycling's hour record. Please note, the interview was recorded before Alex Dowsett broke his collarbone, so please adjust the narrative accordingly. Thanks for the listen, contact me at ttpodcast@yahoo.com.

Shows that feature workouts have been very popular. I have been imposing on guest athletes and coaches to provide a "favorite" workout when we finish recording their main shows. In this show, we welcome back David Ertl and Ian Stanford. I also give you one of my own favorite workouts. As always, thanks for listening. Contact me with questions and comments at ttpodcast@yahoo.com.

Dec 28, 2014

We are following up with Ian Stanford who joined us a while back to talk about the mental approach to time trials. Ian put his own advice to good use as you will see. We talk of his new venture, Ally's Bar (www.allysbar.com) and he also reviews the HED GT3 wheel that we recently spoke of with Tim Mulrooney.

Dec 14, 2014

Coach Gordy Paulson of http://www.speedmadison.com/ joins us again to discuss winter training for all cyclists really, but with a little emphasis on the time trialist.

Nov 16, 2014

Tim Mulrooney was a very popular guest when we talked of aerodynamic wheels and he is joining us again to talk about being a World Champion, HED product updates and some very interesting (yes it is very bike nerdy) talk about frame geometry. Why do bikes that are set up the same feel so different? Tim may have an idea....

In part two, Mark Cote goes through all of the wind tunnel testing to date, and the single most thing you can buy to make you more aerodynamic is much, much cheaper than you think.

Oct 5, 2014

Specialized aerodynamic guru Mark Cote is one of those individuals on the cutting edge of all things related to bicycle aerodynamics. Mark and fellow aero-geek, Chris Yu, have teamed up to develop a series of YouTube videos which confirms and debunks aerodynamic myths and generally provide some very useful information. Mark was kind enough to sit down for an hour and talk about the new Specialized windtunnel and specific research that will lessen the task of fighting the wind. In part one of the interview, Mark goes over his background and the general story behind the Specialized tunnel. Part two of this interview will air in two weeks and most of the “go faster” stuff will be in that segment. If you have something you would like tested just search for Mark Cote or Chris Yu on twitter and use the hashtag #aeroiseverything.

Michael Hutchinson witnessed the Jens Voigt hour record and he shares his insights. We also review the men's 2014 World Team Time Trial Championship and preview the Individual Men's event. 

Sep 21, 2014

Sarah Connolly may just be the foremost authority on all things related to Women’s Professional Cycling. Her excellent website, prowomenscycling.com, is self-described as the “Unofficial Unsanctioned Women's UCI Cycling Blog” and is subtitled “A sweary blog about professional women's cycling.” Her knowledge of women’s cycling is only outdone by her enthusiasm for the sport. Sarah reviews the Women's Team Trial event at the 2014 UCI World Championships and she reviews the individual event. She also updates us on the general state of the sport. 

Sep 16, 2014

Michael Hutchinson is quite possibly the world's foremost authority on cycling's hour record. His own attempt was chronicled in his excellent book "The Hour". Michael will be at the track in Grenchen, Switzerland to preview the first attempt at the new format record by Trek Factory Racing's Jens Voigt, and he was kind enough to give us this audio preview. Michael is a must follow on twitter @doctor_hutch, and this will be especially true for this long awaited return to prominance for the hour record.

Tim Ramsden is an Association of British Cycling L3 Cycling coach and owner of blackcatcyclecoaching.com. He describes himself as a cyclist who loves riding and racing and he’s been doing both for 30 years now. In addition to his coaching, he has a First Class honours degree in Physical Education.  The article referenced in today's show can be found at http://tribesports.com/guides/optimal-pedalling-cadence.

Aug 31, 2014

Coach Rob Kelley is back (rokcoaching.com) and this time he shares his enthusiasm for the sport of Cyclocross. Cross can be a great compliment to any cyclists year, as it is equal part tough and fun. Okay, so it is more fun in the long run. Cross adds much needed weight bearing activity after a summer of sweating out that calcium on the TT bike, so it is worth considering as the TT season winds down and the Cross season heats up. For 10% off a Cyclocross training plan, go to Rob's website, ROKCoaching.com, and enter the coupon code ttpodcast.

In part two, we learn of how relationships began with show contributors Cillian Kelley, Sarah Connolly and Suze. We also touch on how doping scandals have affected the show, and how they decided the best way to cover races. Discover more at http://velocast.cc/

Aug 18, 2014

Scott O'Raw and John Galloway are the purveyors of the Velocast (http://velocast.cc/), which, in my opinion, is the best cycling podcast available. They combine knowledge, humor and a great production value to their loyal listeners. They discuss the roots of the show and in this episode, how they got Eddy Merckx to do their familiar welcome. Part one of two. 

Aug 12, 2014
