Play • 1 hr 11 min

Jean-Philippe Soulé has led a marvelously colorful life. In this episode, we hear from Jean-Phi from the perspective of award-winning author, travel-adventurer, athlete, humanitarian, photographer, and motivational speaker.

Jean-Philippe ran ultra-marathons as a teenager, served in the elite Mountain Commando Special Forces of the French Army, worked as a mountain guide in rescue operations, taught ice-diving as a Master-Scuba-Diver-Trainer in the USA, raced cross-country ski marathons in Japan, became Japan cycling prologue national champion at a UCI Asia tour race, and sea-kayaked 3,000 miles while free-diving to spear his daily food. He is also a national USA cycling coach and licensed French guide organizing bicycle tours in the most spectacular mountains of Europe.

Most recently, he has organized the annual Ultra Bike Pursuit event through the Pyrenees Mountains (check out Ep 28 with Pierre Charles). Don't miss this storybook episode! Let's roll!
