Say Watt?

After a quick catch-up on Rick’s Race Across the West training, 10 Buck Bike Club, and a smattering of other appetizers, we get to this episode’s main course—an interview with 2021 Bessies Creek 12-hour winner, Adam Ashwill.

Adam’s been a part of the ultra-cycling scene for years as his family hosts the infamous Race Across America Time Station 30 in Fort Scott, KS. Inspired by the racers and crews coming through town each summer, Adam decided to give this whole long-distance riding thing a try and has made quite the splash in his first couple years. Despite being new to the sport (or perhaps because of it), he offers remarkably wise and important advice for those who are just getting started, while giving those who have been grinding the gears for decades a reminder of the enthusiasm and energy of their early racing days.
