THIS EPISODE Mike catches up with Team United Healthcare’s Ben Day, an Aussie time trial specialist and all-around great guy. They chat about Ben’s past team adventures, what flying standby means to the uninitiated, living and racing in Poland, having your wallet stolen by hotel staff (something Mike knows all too well after Interbike last year), and other random and fascinating topics.
Enjoy this great conversation with one of the most interesting and versatile guys in the pro peloton today.
