We chat with Robin Carpenter of Rally Cycling to talk about his life since he first joined the podcast in 2016. He has left the smaller Holowesko Citadel squad to pro continental status. That means more opportunities for bigger races in the United States like the Amgen Tour of California and races in Europe like the Tour of Denmark.

He talks about some of the current issues facing American Cycling and what it might take to be more competitive with the world tour teams. Part of the issue is that even the best cyclists are facing uncertain futures and current cyclists already need to think about the future lives after pinning on a number for a living.

Robin is a bit of a renaissance man. Living in La Jolla California, he and his wife support each other with her pursuit of a Phd and Robin, spending time becoming the next great baker of bread. He finds it more than comforting and has a real connection with the nourishment it has given people for thousands of years. He and his wife are working together to make life work for both professions. A rarity in a sport where one spouse follows the life of the other.

Robin is one of the few cyclists who has a multi year contract with a top level cycling program. He is about to finish his first year of a two year contract with Rally Cycling. Robin is already thinking about the next year and reflects on some of his experiences with his current teammates who were for most of his career, rivals.

We also chat with Josh Bonnici of Bonnici Law Group about what cyclists can and should do in the event of an accident. There is so much on this season 2 finale! Enjoy the episode and go out and get inspired. Stay tuned to the all the social media and updates during our hiatus for fun projects and events.
