This Weeks Guest: Charon Smith
Charon is someone who epitomizes Southern California cycling. He races regularly on the SoCal scene and most of the races he enters, he wins. It’s interesting to be someone who wins all the time because while people congratulate him, they also raise eyebrows. Charon talks about what drives him to succeed and motivates him to challenge what the naysayers bring up on the “type” of cyclist he is. Charon breaks down his mental approach to racing as well as the importance of listing to his body and taking care of it. We discuss the importance of conducting yourself at races and even a guilty pleasure or two. A bike commuter with no coach, he races so often on weekends and on the week that many of his rides are recovery rides. We’ve wanted to have Charon as a guest for a long time and he finally came through. We also get an update with John Abate and at the top of the show covered how he’s recovering and an interesting tidbit on staples. We also discuss the great brand Velotoze in “Gear Guide” and how they can save quite a bit of time in a marginal gains world. We also also have the Instagram contest going on and lots more in this revealing episode. You will listen to this episode and listen to it again!
