Feature Interview: Bill Garrels
We are about 3 weeks away from our 6th anniversary of the podcast. For those who don't know the story coach David Warden hosted the Tri Talk Podcast, which inspired the creation of our podcast. He was the guest on our first episode and every year since on our anniversary. We decided to do something different this year. Instead of your typical interview format we are doing a version of "Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me" Sport Trivia style. Bill Garrels is joining Bill Plock and me as the contestants.
Let's get into our first of three contest with host David Warden and fellow contestant Bill Garrels.
As you heard in our lead up we have Coach David Warden of 80/20 Endurance and Coach Bill Garrels of the Mental Healthlete Podcast as a part of our special series of Sport Trivia. David Warden is will be our game show host with Bill Garrels, Bill Plock (who we will refer to by his nickname "Hippie" to avoid confusion) and myself as the contestants.
With that welcome back Bill Garrels and David Warden. David before we get started, tell us what you've been up to and what's going on over at 80/20 Endurance.

If you think e-bikes are dangerous, check out the nightmare this cyclist somehow survived -- a big ass bull running him over right in the middle of a race.
This went down in Bakersfield, CA over the weekend during a rural off-road bike race called the Rock Cobble. The course apparently runs right through at least one bull's turf, and he wasn't having it. After letting one rider pass, the next one gets absolutely flattened!!!
The bull first slammed into his bike, then came back for seconds ... ramming and then tossing the cyclist, a guy named Tony Inderbitzin.
There were reportedly a total of 4 riders attacked during the race, though it appears Tony got the worst of it. Miraculously, he survived ... but he's in a world of pain.
He told Cowboy State Daily, "I’m sore all over, mostly the neck from the second throw, I got whiplashed. The list of what doesn’t hurt is my left arm and head.”
We know you're supposed to get back in the saddle, but we're officially calling a bull exception to that rule.
What's New in the 303:
There are a lot of new things happening with the Karen Hornbostel Time Trial Series. New categories including and e-bike division, an amazing deal if you have never done it before and want to try it and some great weekly giveaways. The course will be a bit different and if you want to buy your state park pass through the Cobras you can save $13.
Since 1991, the KHMTT has taken place Wednesday evenings in Cherry Creek State Park in early spring, and for 2022, we are returning to Spring!
The seven-week series will be starting March 23rd and the rest of the dates are: March 23, 30, April 6, 13, 20, 27, May 4, Weather Make-up: May 11
The course begins at the edge of the Cherry Creek Reservoir, winds through the wetlands southeast of the reservoir, and crosses back and forth the small creeks that supply the water for the reservoir.
The KHMTT series is a fundraiser for Cancer Fitness Institute in memory of Karen Hornbostel, a four-time masters national road champion who battled metastatic breast cancer for over 13 years yet courageously pioneered a fitness program for cancer patients that started what is today the Cancer Fitness Institute. Her work is still making a difference today in the quality of the lives of thousands of cancer survivors. The COBRASand the KHMTT are proud to be able to contribute to this worthwhile program.
The Karen Hornbostel Memorial Time Trial Series is presented by the COBRAS.

This year we have introduced four new categories to include e-bikes: Senior Men and Women, and Master Men and Women.
Why e-bikes? Many older racers have discontinued racing, and in some cases riding at all due to age and being embarrassed because they have become so slow.
An e-bike gives a rider the ability to keep up and get back to the sport they love!
We are following USAC’s policy for e-bikes (which can be found here) and we only are allowing adults (no juniors) to race in the e-bike categories.
E-bikes must be Class 1. Class 1 e-bikes have a motor (max 750w) that assists only while you’re pedaling, up to 20 mph.
E-bike racers must visit the mechanic tent before they head to the start line the first time to have the bike inspected to be sure it qualifies. The Assistant Referee will be checking the bike as well at the start area.
If you or you know someone who has an e-bike and would like to get back into racing, let them know and encourage them to register for the series.
