Fatty had a meeting with a doctor that gave him an unusual frame of mind for this show. The colonoscopy made him hungry and maybe a little freer with his opinions. Some of those opinions regard his feelings about his performance at a new event called The Punisher. Apparently the final climb of the event was so tough that a majority of the fondo riders didn’t even finish. According to Fatty, he finished predictably, in that he predicted the place in which he finished.
While in Leadville, Fatty interviewed Floyd Landis and Dave Zabriskie about their business, Floyd’s of Leadville. They discuss some new products in their line that address pain and anxiety without giving you the desire to eat a pizza and go to a laser light show. Patrick chimes in with ways in which that compound, CBD, has helped him address pain while keeping his head clear to work.
Cannondale Drapac has announced a crowdfunding effort to keep the team afloat. Hottie and Patrick debate just how sustainable such a business model is, and how sharing television revenue is really the solution to funding teams.
