We welcome two additional guests to episode 35, Krystof Andres joins us for a second week to talk cookies and helmets, along with Brianne Varela, local road and MTB racer, who is currently leading the Sport Women category at the Over the Hump Summer Series. She races on behalf of Pure Ride Cycles.
We follow up from last week regarding Peter Sagan representing Slovakia in the 2016 Olympics. As of June 07, according to VeloNews, “the Slovakian Olympic Committee has confirmed that Peter Sagan will swap selection for the Olympic road race for a place in the cross country mountain bike race in the hope of taking a medal.” In other cycling news, Team Rally Cycling’s bicycle donation to the UnitedHealthcare Children’s Foundation “Ride into Spring” fundraising auction, raised nearly $40,000 to support funding of UHCCF medical grants. Go Rally!
This episode we talk helmets – the arguments for and against wearing them while bicycling. A great resource for helmet questions is the Bicycle Helmet Safety Institute website, which we reference a few times in the episode.

Chris, Krystof, and Victor talk about their ride with Phil Gaimon, and what riders can expect from the inaugural Malibu Gran Cookie Dough on November 6th.
This week’s episode is brought to you by Pickle Juice Sport. Beyond the unique taste of pickle juice, this concoction has been proven to eliminate muscle cramps. The formula was tested and revised in the marketplace for the better part of a decade in order to develop the most effective formula possible to address the neurological elements that directly lead to muscle cramping as well as replenishing electrolytes that contribute to hydration. Get yourself a 12 pack and stop muscle cramps – PicklePower!
