I was really lucky to have spent the last few months in Southern California for many reasons, but one of them was definitely that I finally got to hang out with former Pro Tour rider, author, entrepreneur, Strava badass, podcaster and just generally cool-guy-to-know Phil Gaimon.
We got cookies and coffee and talked about life, then we added a microphone to the mix and recorded a podcast where we cover everything from avoiding saddle sores to running a business while racing in the Tour to how he wrote such rad insider-info books. Now, he’s in the midst of the “Worst Retirement Ever,” snagging major Strava KOMs across SoCal and beyond, and he gave me a few tips so I can chase down some QOMs myself. It’s one of my favorite episodes we’ve done thus far, and you get some serious insight into how Phil works. Check it out!
