Well, on today's episode we'll be chatting with Marc Poland, the president of the World Ultra Cycling Association (WUCA), who just set a new world record in the 60+ age category by riding just about 25 miles per hour on an outdoor track at the Bristol Motor Speedway on August 25, 2020.

Episode Transcript

I've been an ultra-endurance athlete since 2011. Since then I've bicycled 3,000 miles across the USA to fight human trafficking, participated in the Race Across America (RAAM), ridden twice non-stop from San Jose to Los Angeles (450 miles) and once out-and-back (900 miles), and completed over 50 double centuries, earning me the title of youngest ultra cyclist ever to be inducted into the California Triple Crown Hall of Fame.
