  • Minimal Multisport Podcast - Ep. 8 BEN HOBBS!

    Welcome @gregk !!!
    Banning people from a forum? I think only the forum managers and owners have ever been banned here. They normally come back. I may be wrong.
    Keep up the good work at ST and elsewhere. We need more yous!
    By the way "are you saying I'm a douche?" another great line in the interview. Well done.

  • Minimal Multisport Podcast - Ep. 8 BEN HOBBS!

    Yes, @Ben Hobbs has been tracked down by Greg Kopecky. Give Greg's new podcast a listen, it's worth your time. Cool concept Greg has, and he's good, easy to listen to as an interviewer. Let's help him buy a "tiny mansion".
    Seems he's a Rooster already even though he needs "Backpfeifengesicht" in his vocabulary. I'm now going down the rabbit hole like I did with TRS reversing order now and listening to the rest.
    Also, he's showing a bad assed steel frame gravel bike on the site (thus, he's more cool)
    Warning: Spoilers below....

    Favourite parts:
    1. Ben teases Starky, always good, I love Starky stuff regardless, and Greg recounts schooling and racing with Starky as a peer. Points for Greg!!! Greg agrees with Ben calling Andrew 'the Kenny Powers' of triathlon.
    2. Ben making Greg recount how he had to fire Ben was a nice touch out of the gate (point for Ben early), and then later he calls out Greg for "micro-aggression". Nice house guest Ben!
    3. Ben comments on buying his new smaller house and Greg asks "It's not a tiny house is it" Love it Greg!
    4. Greg is "defending his right to be bored" Talk about a person that fits in with the Roost.
    5. Greg scores big when he does a Ben and a) asks Ben to call out folks who deserve it in triathlon, "do your worst" b) asks who needs to be punched in the face. Boy oh boy, if Greg had just used "Backpfeifengesicht" I would have binge listened to the previous 7 instantly instead of working on my business trip.
    6. Greg put a smile on my face recounting some of Ben's interviewing staples....

    Keep up the good work Greg, and nice college try on trying to encourage Ben to keep the options alive on a revisit to podcasting.
    @AaronWebstey , Greg likes the TRS logo, steal that thing from Ben or rip it off in great part for the new team. Someday Ben will get over being mad at you and see that it's the ultimate homage.

    @Jennifer Post , so far there is little direct speculation besides the jpg I attached from a tweet with little or no comment. I couldnt event look up the data to verify it. Brett has now tweeted a blog link in which he is defending her incredibly fast bike. He alludes to the fact she beats the boys on her team so it is no surprise to anyone. He then goes to say she has more left and will be faster in 2019.
    No one is publicly complaining or raising the issue save for one or two tiny comments in the ST threads. I find his long blog curious for this reason.....

    Go Francois! After many many comments rationalizing the result of Ryf in the last 70k (and Dev Paul's comment just after finishes the thread on an interesting note more on its original subject)
