Video: Interviewed by Gene Arnold, founder of Regular Guy Mountain Biking & host of the Bike Chat show on YouTube

I was interviewed last week by Gene Arnold, founder of Regular Guy Mountain Biking and host of the weekly Bike Chat show on YouTube. He published the interview (23 minutes) today.

Among those I mentioned on the show: Ryan Leech & his Ryan Leech Connection; James Wilson & his MTB Strength Training Systems; and Lee McCormack & his Lee Likes Bikes.

He surprised me with the ending. Classy, Gene!

I’m hoping the collaboration will continue.

‘Light hands, heavy feet’ article available on Singletracks

Singletracks LHHF blog post screenshotI got to know Singletracks.com editor Greg Heil when we and several others collaborated on the development of an mtb-related product.  

So I submitted a guest blog post based on my 3-part ‘Light Hands, Heavy Feet’ video series and he published it on Monday.

It’s titled Light Hands, Heavy Feet: 17 Drills to Help Make Your Riding More Stable no Matter What the Terrain. (You can comment on the blog post with either your Facebook or Singletracks account.)

Greg told me yesterday that article had generated thousands pageviews and hundreds of ‘shares’ and that he was planning to include it in this week’s Singletracks enewsletter.  (The newsletter is free to anyone who signs up for one of the Singletracks memberships.)

Part 1 of my video series can be viewed at the end of the Singletracks article. Parts 2 and 3, plus a Powerpoint presentation and an audio version are available free here.

Back in June when I blogged the Anatomy of a MORC MTB trail work crew: reshaping corners at Carver Lake Park, I also took a few photos of MORC Dirt Boss Porter Million being interviewed by a film crew from SWC-TV who was working on a show for the City of Woodbury’s magazine-style program called Woodbury Citystyle.

The video of the show is now available online. Intro text:
