For pro teams, finding sponsors and keeping said sponsors happy is more difficult than ever before. This week Selene takes a look at the new strategy from EF Education First-Drapac-Rapha. They have announced that they will be taking on some events that aren’t part of the World Tour, which means we may see some pink kits at events like Dirty Kanza and the Red Hook Criterium. This could get cool.
A couple of weeks ago Eliud Kipchoge broke the world record for the marathon, running a 2:01.39 in Berlin. And while this show isn’t about running, his training regimen piqued Patrick’s interest. Why? Kipchoge does the vast majority of his miles in Zone 2. The world’s greatest marathoner isn’t a slave to HIIT. Go figure.
