This episode continues our coverage of some of the most epic races on the planet. This week we have repeat top 10 Norseman Xtreme Triathlon finisher Richard Rozok. Many of you will know what makes Norseman an "extreme" triathlon. For those who don't or have never heard of Norseman, you are about to hear a story of an incredibly challenging iron distance race. Norseman is a one of seven Xtri World Tour Xtreme triathlons.
At the Sansego Camp this past May, Crowie asked all of the athletes to introduce themselves, their racing experience and race goals for the year. Most of us were referring to 70.3 this and IM that - no big surprises. There was one guy, with a great accent, who casually mentioned that he was planning to race Norseman. There were a handful of us in the room that had audible reactions, including Crowie, Matt Smith and Franko Vatterott.

Thanks to last week's guest, Don Reichelt who put his stamp in Badwater 135 history, finishing 3rd overall. We had a great chat about his training, strategy and how the race unfolded. Badwater 135 sounds brutal with temperatures as high as 127 degrees. If you missed it, go back and check out Episode #138.

Richard Rozok is a working age-grouper in Norway who competes at the elite level. Having trained with him at the Sansego Boulder camp this past May, I can attest first hand to Richard's strength and speed at all disciplines. I'm pleased to present…Richard Rozok.
