Brook gives us a peek inside the race and gets us ready for September.

For episode 36, Cole Oberman dropped by CXHairs HQ after winning the Iron Hill Challenge MTB XC race and making the drive down interstate 95 to Washington DC. We had a great chat about the life of a pro MTB/CX racer and how cool Harrisonburg, Virginia has become. We then ate Thai food before sending Cole back on the road.

Cole is a professional mountainbike racer with Ridebiker Alliance. He also races cyclocross bikes with Pro Tested Gear (three words). Although he may not have started racing seriously until age 20, Cole has more than made up for it with a quick rise to the elite level over the past five years.

For episode 35 I had the opportunity to chat with Richard Nieuwhuis, who owns A. Dugast BV, the company that makes Dugast tubular tires. We found some time before the Lenzerheide World Cup mountainbike races to sit down in the Scott Odlo compound and talk cyclocross. The environment was not ideal so there is definitely some background noise, including an espresso machine and a late cameo by Band of Horses. But the conversation is wide-ranging, from how he got into the business and how he works with top pros to produce the treads we all know to dishing on the the best riders in the business.

Before the conversation with Richard begins, there is  a quick chat with Scot Hermann about a bonus episode we put together for subscribers to the Wide Angle podium podcast network. That bonus content should be available soon.

Ellen Noble (Aspire Racing) is our guest for episode 34 of Crosshairs Radio. And it's a good one. A really good one.

I know I'm not alone in saying I've been a fan of Ellen's since her days with Trek Cyclocross Collective. It's astounding to think that having raced cyclocross for only five years, after coming over from mountainbiking, she is already one of the fastest women in the United States. But once you hear her talk about trying to make herself suffer so hard she bleeds out of her eyeballs, you'll understand how Ellen Noble has succeeded at pretty much everything she tries.

In our conversation we talk about her recent stint racing on the road and the mixed emotions that accompanied some great results. We also talked about joining Jeremy Powers' Aspire Racing team and what the future holds. But what was really cool, was getting into the topics that don't always come up on this show. We talked about the harsh reality of living in a social media spotlight, especially when one of your most emotionally painful moments in racing goes viral. We delved into the benefits of working with a sports psychologist and how that's not only helped Ellen's racing but also her overall mental outlook.

Truly an interesting conversation that I know you will come away from with a good feeling. Make sure to follow Ellen on Twitter, Instagram and SnapChat at @EllenLikesBikes.
