Happy Memorial Day weekend! In today's show we have Chris Anthony perhaps most known for being a professional skier in the Warren Miller movies is joining us to talk about a host of topics, but the one that might surprise you the most is that he was just as likely to have made a professional career as a cyclist. We are also going to talk about how his cycling background led him to create the biggest Prim funding than pretty much any pro female race at the Colorado Classic. We'll also cover how he is using the history and story of the 10th Mountain Division to help teach kids history in a fun and exciting way.
Thanks to last week's guest Colin Laughery. That was a blast of an interview and the Garage Talk was great too. In the Garage Talk Colin was wearing a t-shirt with the phrase "The Swim Is Cancelled" on it. I wanted to get one for myself (and as presents for some family members who happen to be triathletes). I googled it and was led to a company called The Swim Is Cancelled. Huge shout out to Nate Ballard at The Swim Is Cancelled for a great list of fun products (tees, hoodies, stickers, patches) with captions like the aforementioned, "I Pee On Bikes", "Zone 2 is a Lie", and more.

Video of the Week:
I have been wanting to talk share some of the things I've been learning on the UCAN webinars that Matt Bach has been having over on the UCAN Instagram page. If you are following @genucan you know what I’m saying. They are really educational. He explains the science of why it works so well as a fuel that doesn't spike your blood sugar, some of their newer bars and protein tubs, UCAN recipes and more.
