Dr. Adam Phaneuf is a Doctor of Chiropractic with a degree in Exercise Science based in Bellingham, WA. He's also a bike fitter and has studied bicycle biomechanics.

In this episode we ask Adam:

  • Is it true that cycling is lower impact than other activities like jogging?
  • Do you think mountain biking is higher impact than road cycling?
  • What are some of the most common ride-related issues folks tend to have?
  • Are certain muscles, or body parts, more prone to injury or pain for mountain bikers?
  • Do oval chain rings work for reducing pain? Are there any biomechanical advantages to them that riders can benefit from?
  • How can riders know if it’s their form that needs to be changed, or if it’s something about the bike fit that’s wrong?
  • What is arm pump, and what causes it?
  • Can vibration on the bike lead to any health or pain issues? Can things like suspension stems or seat posts be helpful for some people?
  • How does bike fit change, if at all, based on the type or length of ride we’re doing?
  • What is the ideal saddle tilt for mountain biking? How do you dial that in correctly?
  • Are there pros and cons to trying a more rearward cleat placement for mountain biking?
  • What do you think about the idea of video/online bike fitting?

    Pro Mountain Biker Rab Wardell on Continuing to Chase the Dream

    1:05:08

    Rab Wardell is a mountain bike athlete and coach living in Glasgow, Scotland. He recently launched a new video series with Wahoo Fitness called Old Enough to Know Better. In this episode, we ask Rab: How did a big early race loss affect your outlook on your career as an athlete? What was it like to essentially retire in your early 20s? What did you decide to do instead? What are some of the biggest mistakes that stand out as being the ones where you learned the most? As an athlete, are there ways to learn beyond just personal experience? What risks are involved in becoming a professional athlete? What types of normal, everyday things have you decided to cut out of your life to focus on racing? How much of it feels like a sacrifice? Were there any times when friends or family members suggested you grow up and get a “real job”? What competitive advantages do you have at your age? Why is play important? Are there ways you’ve found to incorporate play into your training? What do you hope to be doing on the bike at age 50, or even 70? At 36, are there things you still have left to learn and experience?

    WC Winner Christopher Blevins Takes Stewardship of the US Mountain Biking Torch

    42:37

    This year Christopher Blevins became the first American man to win a World Cup race since 1994, taking first in the final XCO race of the season at Snowshoe, West Virginia. He’s also the reigning short track world champion, and has notched numerous podium finishes at national and international mountain, cyclocross, and road races. This month he’s got a short documentary film titled “The Long Traverse” that will be premiering online. How did the Durango DEVO community-based cycling program shape who you are as a rider? What is it about Durango that produces so many talented riders? Is it the elevation, or the terrain, or something else? How does being a playful rider translate on the race course? How did you get interested in spoken word poetry? What did you learn through the process of preparing for and then racing your FKT attempt along the Los Padres route? Which do you find more challenging: FKTs or World Cup racing? How are they different or the same? As a professional athlete, what do you see as your role in important issues like climate change? How can we balance the positives that tourism can bring to an area with the impact that it has in terms of the carbon footprint of travel and the strain on local resources? Why did you decide to join the Trinity Racing team? Were you thinking about becoming the first US male to win a World Cup race in 27 years at the start of the Snowshoe XC event this year? Who are some entrepreneurs you admire? Do you see yourself becoming an entrepreneur in the traditional business sense, or is entrepreneurship applicable to making a career as an athlete?
