THIS EPISODE Coming to you live from Team SmartStop-Mountain Khakis training camp in Tucson, AZ, it’s Mike’s old friend Mike “Meatball” Friedman, a multi-time national champion and 2008 Olympic cyclist, most recently of Optum Pro Cycling p/b Kelly Benefit Strategies.
Over the course of an hour and a half of reminiscing, they cover such diverse topics as guns, bleached hair, Friedman being intimidated by Creed and Pate, racing in Tasmania, the nuances of track cycling, team pursuit, and the Madison, as well as being at the Olympics and calling the cops on anti-cyclist zealots.
And somewhere in there we learn even more about Creed’s youthful fervor for Pace salsa.
You’re sure to be dazzled, entertained, and thoroughly confused by this high-energy conversation between two old friends and former teammates.
