This week Fatty, Hottie and Patrick are joined by a special guest. Yuri Hauswald is a former winner of Dirty Kanza, a Camelbak-sponsored athlete and a marketing pro with GU Energy Labs. He joins the boys to talk about the suggestion that cyclists should boycott Giro, Bell, Blackburn, Camelbak and the other cycling-related holdings of Vista Outdoor, a publicly traded company whose primary trade is guns and ammunition.
Yuri also talks a bit about his decision to be one of the 34 hearty souls to undertake the new Dirty Kanza XL, 350 miles of Flint Hills gravelly goodness.
Much of the show is devoted to the conversation about the boycott; Patrick ceded his pull as a leadout to this topic. In Fatty’s pull he discusses his new solution to remember all the great ideas he has while out on the bike. Apparently, he has a good idea about every mile, which makes keeping track of the sheer plethora of them an enormous undertaking. Would that the rest of us have such a problem.
And Yuri will tell the backstory to the shot above in the episode.
