On Episode 27 of Crosshairs Radio we talk to American Classic pro, Robert Marion. If you aren't familiar with Robert's story, it's a great one. We go through his days as an out of shape 260 pound former offensive lineman in North Carolina, and how he transformed into a top endurance mountainbike racer before spending his energy racing cyclocross at the highest level. It's a story of a guy who is driven to succeed no matter what obstacles are placed in front of him. As you will hear, Robert Marion is one of the hardest working people you will ever meet.
After our conversation we have a short bonus chat with Adam Myerson who is starting his own podcast, The Myerson Line, on the Wide Angle Podium Network.
