What are marginal gains?

These are those slight adjustments you make to your training that add up, giving you that extra boost. The precise diet. The course recon.

Joshua Poertner, CEO of Silca Velo and previous technical director of Zipp, visits the crew in Episode 28 to discuss where the concept of marginal gains came from as well as how wind direction can impact optimum tire pressure. Plus the usual Q&A where Matt explains the terms “Allez” and “Ho.”
