THIS EPISODE Mike gets together at the Tour of Alberta with old friend, professional spandex model and pro cyclist Brad Huff, aka HuffyUSA of the Jelly Belly Cycling Team. The guys discuss the difference between interviewing friends vs. *wink* friends; the collision of ‘husky genetics’, diet, and do-it-yourself eating disorder methods; and how much vanity and self-doubt come into play in the psyche of the pro bike racer. In the course of story-telling, some truths come out about a certain breakaway move in the Qinghai Lake race that causes a bit of a scuffle to break out between Creed and Huff, apologies are demanded, an eventual reconciliation is reached, thankfully, and a major announcement is made.
A few “Dirty Dancing” references and verbal smackdowns later, and it’s all smiles and reminiscences as they share one hilarious story after another.
This is sure to rank among one of the most entertaining “Open Mic” podcasts ever, and we’re absolutely certain you’re going to be grinning throughout. Enjoy!
