Today's guest is Taylor Lideen - this year's overall winner of the Unbound Gravel XL race - a 350 mile sufferfest through the Flint Hills of Kansas. Formerly known as Dirty Kanza, the race challenged Taylor to the bitter end through nearly 24 hours of racing. We talk at great length about that race, the preparation and physical and mental side of ultra bike racing and Taylor opens up about his battles on and off the bike with depression and the importance of family and close support of his wife and other loved ones to bring him back into the light.
