PYSO, ep. 80: Fabian Cancellara on a champion's mentality and the work that goes into it
In this episode of Put Your Socks On, the legendary Fabian Cancellara weighs on on the socks. "Socks — they need to be short," says the four-time world time trial champion. "Rapha always comes up and says the socks need to be high. No! That look is not stylish. That look it's just a no-go. So I want to have my socks short. And then it's stylish." The two-time Olympic time trial champion also points out that high socks are now aero equipment. "They think socks can give an advantage of one to five watts," he says. "There is a lot of discussion, but you know what is good? I'm out of the game. I just don't want the tan lines for when I am at the beach." Cancellara chats with Bobby Julich and Gus Morton about his long and storied career, which included three wins at both Paris-Roubaix and the Tour of Flanders. The Swiss racer also holds the record for most days in the Tour de France yellow jersey — 29 — for a rider who never won the overall. Cancellara wrapped up his career in high style right after the 2016 Olympic Games — "a better ending of a career was not possible" - but he says that his Flanders win in 2013 sticks out as a career highlight because of how hard he had to fight back after a challenging 2012. hard 2012. "2006 to ’16, I had a lot of success, but also a lot of hard times," he says, from crashes to cheating allegations. "I mean, in three weeks I gained 10 kilos. Ten days after the Olympics, I went from hero to zero. I had to learn to grow a thick skin." "To be in the spotlight, it's not easy. But if you want to win bike races, it's part of the game that when the spotlight comes you need to adapt to it and you need to be able to handle it," he says. "I worked with a life coach. I didn't only work on cycling skills, I worked on my own to have this responsibility in my daily life."

FT139: A New Coaching Model: Creating Better Athletes Through Our Virtual Performance Center
We believe modern coaching doesn’t optimally fulfill the needs of the modern athlete. That’s why we’re introducing our community, education, and coaching membership, Fast Talk Laboratories.   So often athletes are given templated training plans. But what if he or she gets sick? Or work gets stressful? That athlete will likely do more harm than good simply pushing through and sticking to the plan. In response to that methodology, we’ve created a virtual performance center, a place for the insightful athlete to be guided to their best self.   We have collected the many tools available to modern athletes in one place, offering curated and validated knowledge—through articles, videos, workshops, webinars, forums, and the list goes on—from some of the finest minds in sport science: Dr. Stephen Seiler, Dr. Stephen Cheung, Julie Young, Colby Pearce, Grant Holicky, Jess Elliott, to name a few. We’ll be adding new contributors all the time, and you can be sure they’ll also bring clarity and sophistication to their contributions.  Let’s detail our Listener, Library, Live, and Laboratory member levels.  Listener: We are now producing transcripts of every new Fast Talk podcast episode—plus our catalog of over 135 existing episodes and 27 Cycling in Alignment episodes. What does that mean for Listeners? Searchable podcast episodes, references, and resources. And, of course, you can read along or scan ahead, if you happen to be a faster reader than listener.   Listeners will also begin to receive our weekly newsletter, which will keep them up to date on new episodes, special guests, and opportunities to send in questions for new Q&A episodes. We also have plans to periodically release a few of our most popular training science videos and articles—but only for members.   Our next membership level unlocks a whole library of content, which is why we’re calling it our Library Membership. For our Library Members, we have created training science articles, a whole library of video content, and a moderated forum. This is content like the fundamentals of sports nutrition from Head Coach Ryan Kohler and a workshop on why cold temperatures affect performance from Dr. Stephen Cheung. The Forum is a place to discuss recent episodes, ask questions, and get answers from Trevor, Ryan, and our very smart members.   Live membership is really the heart and soul of what we’re offering. This level includes all the features we’ve already introduced, plus a whole suite of Live Events including social group rides, structured live workouts, live Q&A sessions, and live webinars. Trevor’s and Ryan’s experience in training centers and the group-style approach will shine. This level also includes group coaching and a monthly question answered.  Our Laboratory Membership will open in January. This is our premier coaching level, and of course it includes all the benefits of the lower levels. We believe it’s a vast improvement over existing coaching programs. Our athletes and listeners are not typical. They are intelligent, motivated, and they don’t need email nannying, which is what we often see in endurance coaching. They also don’t really need templated training plans,  which we believe are counterproductive for higher-level athletes.   Instead, our Laboratory Membership is a new concept that we call Endurance Mentorship. What does that mean? Well, it’s based on the idea that you already know the basics—but wouldn’t it be great to have an elite coach to answer your questions? Plus, with periodic testing and guidance, you’ll experience the best of what Fast Talk Laboratories has to offer as a virtual performance center. Learn more about your ad choices.

Josh Whitmore: Mastering Bike Skills And Gaining Free Speed
*About this episode:* In this week’s episode, coach Adam talks with CTS Expert Coach and mountain bike instructor Josh Whitmore about all things bike skills and how cyclists from all disciplines and skill levels can improve and gain free speed on the bike. *Guests – Josh Whitmore:* I came to coaching from a racing background, enjoying a brief career as a full-time cross-country mountain bike racer in the 1990s when the sport was at its pinnacle. I retired from full-time racing to pursue a career in outdoor education and mountain guiding, earning a Masters Degree in Outdoor Education. I eventually returned to my love of cycling and currently race as a high-level amateur and masters age category athlete in road, mountain, and cyclocross events. I also still keep a foot in the mountain guiding world, occasionally guiding rock/ice climbing, mountaineering, and backcountry skiing. Since 2010, I’ve focused my professional energies into coaching endurance athletes and helping people of all abilities reach their athletic goals in cycling and alpinism. In addition to ongoing coaching of individuals, I am the company’s most highly qualified mountain bike skills instructor. *Episode Highlights:* * The skills pyramid * 4 dimensions of body position * The key to progressing your skills * Skills vs maneuvers *Learn More About Josh Whitmore And Connect With Him:* * Josh's bio: https://trainright.com/coaches/josh-whitmore/ * MTB Skills: https://trainright.com/mtb-skills-clinic/ * Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/iamjoshwhitmore/ *Listen to the episode on **Apple Podcasts**, **Spotify**, **Stitcher**, **Google Podcasts**, or on your favorite podcast platform*

PTO's Impact on Pro-Triathletes * Simon Ward with Jackson Laundry and Taylor Reid
Since COVID19 hit the world, triathletes have suffered just like everyone else. Limited opportunities to train and virtually no racing apart from virtual. The Professional Triathletes Organisation (PTO) has been a big help to triathlon, distributing grants to help athletes survive and in recent months, bumping up the prize purse at selected races (£15k for Helvellyn and Outlaw X in the UK) for the pro athletes racing. On December 6 the PTO Challenge Daytona will air and this event will have the biggest prize purse ever offered for a professional triathlon race with £1,150,000. There will be an equal number of pro male and female starters and the prize pots are identical. In another first, the prize money will be distributed among all athletes with every starter guaranteed to take home a minimum of $2500. In this week’s episode, I talk to 2 talented Canadian athletes who will be racing in Daytona. Taylor Reid has five professional 70.3 victories (including three Ironman 70.3 victories) and has been on the podium fifteen times. After chasing the Olympic dream for 7 years, he had some success winning the U23 Canadian Champion in 2013. He then made the switch to long-course triathlon in 2014, focusing on the Ironman 70.3 events all around the world. The longer event, which required more endurance, suited his strengths. Alongside his triathlon career, Taylor is also a spokesperson for dyslexia, sharing his story with the world to help raise awareness about dyslexia. Jackson Laundry is a two-time Ironman 70.3 champ (Raleigh 2018, Mont Tremblant 2019) and has eleven 70.3 podiums. He was also the winner and co-organizer of the 2020 Canadian pro tri championship, a race that he and Taylor decided to host in order to give the community something to look forward to and give fellow athletes a high level race. It was a huge success, bringing many of the top Canadian athletes together, with their own private TV crew and CBC coverage. Taylor is also the co-host of "The Real Triathlon Podcast” and has had a successful virtual race season in 2020, taking 4th place at the 2020 Zwift pro tri series, 2nd place at Ironman VR14, and winning 1 stage of the Super League e-series. Listen in to the interesting conversation with these two enthusiastic, personable and professional triathletes trying to make their way in the world and giving back a little as they continue their journey. Hopefully you’ll appreciate this as well as we chat about: * Life as a pro triathlete - living the dream or scraping a living * The life of a professional triathlete during lockdown in Canada * How COVID 19 has disrupted their training and racing plans * PTO and the impact it’s having on professional triathlon * An athlete turned race organizer, and getting a better appreciation of the work done by race promoters and volunteers * Challenge Daytona To find out more about Jackson: Website - https://www.jacksonlaundrytri.com/ Instagram - @jacksonlaundrytri To find out more about Taylor: Website: - http://www.taylor-reid.com/ YouTube - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCIj6iRJupVYsVB06igYz9zQ?view_as=subscriber Twitter/instagram: @TC_Reid We also talked about: "The Real Triathlon Podcast": hosted by Jackson and two fellow pro triathletes You can find that here - https://therealtriathlonpodcast.podbean.com/ Podcast Instagram handle is @therealtripodcast Here is the link to the race highlights video for the Canadian Pro Triathlon Championship. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=k_Cek3u8Jfo&t=4s Taylor talked about his work increasing awareness of dyslexia.
