The Outspoken Cyclist – 01/26/2013

Would you hang up your bike cold turkey, and become a cattle farmer? Inga Thompson did exactly that in the mid-1990′s after a successful, yet frustrating career as an Olympian and U.S. National Team racer. Thompson learned that ‘not a team player’ was actually code for ‘clean rider’. She offers her inside view on women’s racing, and life beyond cycling.

In the second half of the show, Diane talks with nutritionist and author Matt Fitzgerald, whose book Racing Weight is now in its second edition. Weight is on many peoples’ minds this time of year, as we assess the toll our holiday indulgence has taken on our body mass. Matt has many practical tips on how to increase the quality of your dietary intake, and avoid “brain hunger”.
