Tow spacers always got a love on the tow spacers. Good evening, Ken O’Connor. I’ll take the odds. This is delayed. Greg C. No, delayed. What are you talking about? Oh, is it stuttering? I see Caleb. Great. I feel like this is good. Okay, you’re looking over there. Maybe you can see no over there. You see that 36 terabyte Ray drive, another 30 terabytes. I usually have a sack of weed that I don’t smoke. Well here I have a 30 terabytes of hard drives that I hope that I will be using that using a lot of Rick Wagner. What’s up dude? Mason Mitchell. Hey Lydia. Hi Caleb. Hi. Sarah Cooper. Hey. Yeah, just seeing if you’re listening. Sarah Cooper. Hi. What’s up with the avatar?


Barry Cocker. Okay, if you insist Blade, what’s up, brother? Blade. Blade. Blade, Heidi, groom. Heidi. Heidi, Heidi. Tomorrow. This sounds like we have our first media meeting or the first one at least. I got here today. I spent hours setting up my camera rig today. Hiller actually came to my hotel room and I set up two rigs. So I’ll show you this. Is this a seven R four? It’s kind of a dinosaur nd filter on here. Hiller talked me into getting this thing which was smart. And this microphone just a handle to hold onto Little Grip. Yeah. Okay. And I got a Sennheiser shotgun mic here and then I got another Sennheiser mic here so that you, there will record a separate channel so you guys can hear my questions for the first time ever. And a 20 millimeter lens. And then I got this one over here for slow moss and all be shot in four K.


Hiller has a very similar setup and then Mariah Moore will be shooting with I think a red Patrick Rios will be shooting with four K. It’s a new camera. He got something fancy. So he came out with, I want to say FX six or FX three, something fancy. It’s going to be incredible. Got here today, left my house California 3:00 AM. Got to Chicago at 1239. Between the drive and the time change, Hiller picked me up from the airport. We drove straight to Madison. We stopped twice. Once at Popeye’s and then once 15 minutes away from Madison, I had the poop. He’s great to travel with. I go, how far is it to the hotel? He goes pretty close. I’m like, okay. He goes, why? I’m like, I got to go to the bathroom. He says, oh, I’ll just pull over. And he went to a Starbucks. I liked that.

Caleb Beaver (04:19):

I was going to ask, where’d you poop at? Was it a good bathroom?

Sevan Matossian (04:22):

It was nice. Very nice. It was one of the cleanest, it was like Starbucks from the old days. We don’t even have Starbucks that are clean like that in California anymore. Let’s see. Monster Chaplain did seven drop, drop. What am I cutting in and out? Let me know if I’m cutting in and out. Tell me, this is the first time I’ve used this. I’m in a hotel room. I’m trying to get to the bottom so I can get up to speed on the comments and then we’ll get into the meat of the show. Wow. Soccer Mom, Dixie, nor good to see you. Frank Dubak. Can’t hear you. Savon. That’s not true, right?

Caleb Beaver (05:03):


Sevan Matossian (05:03):

I’m finally fucking chat is lit tonight. Yeah. Wow. 522 people. My goodness. Okay, I’m catching up and catching up. But see Heidi again. Here we go. Finally. Lucky camera straps. Ethan Forbes. What’s up dude? Good to see you brother. It’s been a minute. Do you know who that is, Caleb?

Caleb Beaver (05:20):

No. Who is that?

Sevan Matossian (05:22):

From the Forbes Empire. That guy’s worth about 600 mil.

Caleb Beaver (05:26):


Sevan Matossian (05:26):

Yeah, Ethan’s a good dude. Lucky he probably didn’t want me to share that. Lucky camera straps. Still can’t believe you guys are doing remote podcasts, doing the games beasts. Hey, you know what? I can’t believe. So I napped there in that bed for like 20 minutes and then I did a hundred burpees and I took a shower. That’s what I looked like. I just got out of prison and before I did the show and I was in bed there giggling. Oh, Caleb froze. Is that me? Did I freeze Caleb?

Caleb Beaver (05:57):

No, it’s me.

Sevan Matossian (05:58):

Oh good. Yes.


And so I was giggling. I just can’t even believe I’m here. Hey, there’s no way I can screw this up. I’m not trying to float my own boat. I’m like one of the nicest people you could ever meet. I’m like, if you met me, I would have to do everything in my power not to invite you over to my house for dinner. Truly, I’m just a nice guy. Even when I was media director, if there was some just scrub next to me who wanted a shot, I would move out of the way. I would never put myself ahead of anyone, just not who I am. I can’t. I’m just a nice guy. So that’s good, Trish, good to see you. How was your flight? Easy. I sat up there, I looked around at everyone on the flight. I was kind of tripping because no one even, I don’t even look like anyone else on the plane. Not even Everyone looks like just giant versions of me giant. Everyone’s a foot taller than me. Everyone’s a hundred pounds bigger than me. There’re like 80 year old women on there who they could eat me. They could just bite me.

Caleb Beaver (07:05):

Was your neighbor huge?

Sevan Matossian (07:07):

I mean he’s 5 10, 2 30

Caleb Beaver (07:13):

Average American size these days.

Sevan Matossian (07:14):

Yeah, I sat Indian style in my seat for four hours. There was no wifi on the phone. I didn’t watch a movie. I just sat there.

Caleb Beaver (07:22):

You didn’t have wifi?

Sevan Matossian (07:23):


Caleb Beaver (07:24):

What the hell?

Sevan Matossian (07:26):

But I had a huge seat, so I just

Caleb Beaver (07:30):

Sat. You said crisscross. It’s pretty wild.

Sevan Matossian (07:32):

I just sat Indian style and was just chilling. It was good. I landed. I can’t believe how easy it was to tell you the truth. Barry Cocker, I’m hard for the hard drives. I know they’re nice. They’re all clean and crisp and wrapped tightly and individual little plastics. They’re nice. Franco Dubak, please take a picture with sporty Beth. I will. I will. So I’ll tell you something interesting. So I guess her and Hiller are kind of, I dunno, I think they’re, they’re cordial. No more. I think that they are in the early stages of a friendship. I don’t even know if they have a beef but bearing the hatchet or kindling, is that a word? Kindling?

Caleb Beaver (08:19):


Sevan Matossian (08:20):

Yeah. Rekindling, kindling, rekindling.

Caleb Beaver (08:22):

Rekindling would mean that they had something prior, but I think kindling a friendship would be good.

Sevan Matossian (08:27):

Okay. Reworking. He showed me some exchanges between them and it looked like that they’re in a good place to be friends. And he said she went to Popeye’s and right when he was telling me she went to Popeye’s, we drove by, we see a sign Popeye’s in like three miles. So me and him went to Popeye’s. I can’t ever remember going to Popeye’s. I drank 64 ounces of Diet Coke. That’s probably why I had to pee. And that’s what I ate. Coming off a 36 hour fast. I hadn’t eaten anything. Came off a 36 hour fast with he ordered me two huge spicy sandwiches, masks,

Caleb Beaver (09:02):

Mask. Yeah, those are good.

Sevan Matossian (09:04):

Yeah, he didn’t the I ordered extra hot sauce and just dipped it in hot sauce and drank 64 ounces of Diet Coke. It was true. His power food. Frank, you’ve got to

Caleb Beaver (09:14):

Be wired now.

Sevan Matossian (09:15):

So I will try to get a picture with her if she’s civil. Do you know what I’m really though concerned is I told you that I’m extremely kind and polite. A matter of fact, when I was getting off the plane, I was helping as I got off, there were a row of ladies who were, because of their lifestyle choices in somewhat decrepitude and they were waiting to get off the plane because they were struggling getting their bag. So three ladies in a row, as I went down the aisle, I said, ma’am, can I help you with your bag? And I take the bag down and when I got off the plane, I was in the carousel area and an old 80 year old man comes up to me and goes, I noticed you helped a lot of women as you got off the plane. I said, yes sir. And he said, whoa, that was very nice of you. I said, well, my mom taught me to do that. He said, well, you have a good mom. And then I said, what’s our value to other human beings if we can’t help them? Greg taught me that.

Caleb Beaver (10:06):

Did he give you $20 too?

Sevan Matossian (10:09):

I wish. I wish. Thank you. That only happens here. Although the story of someone gave me $5 thought I was homeless, how is hiller’s driving? I don’t want to talk about it unless he’s here to defend himself.


But he did ask, he asked for some feedback on his driving and I gave it to him and he said, oh, that’s what my chick says. And I was like, all right, well there you go. I would not have given him the feedback if he didn’t. He didn’t say anything. Did you bring your bicep peptides? I did not. I did not. Oh yeah, there it is. God was I so happy to see him. I was exhausted. I was so happy to see him. Thanks. Sorry I was off the Madison there. He’s what? That front window is tinted so black. Do you know that story? Someone stole his car and then when he got it back, the front windshield was tinted.

Caleb Beaver (11:24):


Sevan Matossian (11:27):


Caleb Beaver (11:27):

All the windows were,

Sevan Matossian (11:29):

Yeah. Weird. Right?

Caleb Beaver (11:32):

So some like gangland shit.

Sevan Matossian (11:35):

Lydia Savon is in the zone, got the game face on. So


I told you I was on a diet protocol prior to the games and I ate one day and didn’t eat for one day for 18 days. So I fasted nine days of waking hours of 18 days building up to this so that I could fit into my clothes that I used to wear when I did the behind the scenes. Crazy. Right. And it worked. That’s wild. And it worked. So basically I ate and then I would wake up in the morning and not eat all the way till bedtime and then eat again the next day. So it was more than 24 hour fast I think. I don’t know how that works, but basically get two sleeps and I did nine of those and while I was in the middle of doing that, I heard a games athlete who, I can’t say their name because if I say that’s the thing I’m worried about, I’m worried about if I say hi to sporty breath, someone will be like, Hey, he pointed a gun at her or some shit. So I got to be careful, but I heard a games athlete saying that they know that they have an eating disorder. They would go whenever they felt like they wanted to lose weight, they’d go a day without eating. I was like, well shit, I got nine eating disorders in.


Do I have the media shirts? I think that they’re at the hotel. I think they’re delivered to the hotel. I just got out of the bed. I literally has cheek. I got here, I was in my room setting up my camera for three hours and then I took a nap. I did a hundred burpees and took a shower. That’s all I’ve done, man. I can’t keep up with the chat. Karina, rain savon and team. You guys are going to brighten up my days. Thank you. I need this right now. Good. Awesome.

Caleb Beaver (13:28):


Sevan Matossian (13:28):

Awesome. You got my text. Lemme know if there’s anything I can do for you. I think you have my phone number personally. I hope all is good and gets better. Thank you. You’ve always been so good to me. Carina, were you able to get your nose hair trimmed? No. It’s funny you say that, but in the back of the car ride to the airport today, it was an hour. I was trying to grab chunks of them and yank ’em out, but thank you for That’s a good reminder. Thank you. I’m pumped. I’m really, really, really pumped. I’m excited. I have a lot of people here that I really love and enjoy and I have a lot of people here that I hope to bring a lot of attention to this week.

Caleb Beaver (14:10):

Do you tweeze them?

Sevan Matossian (14:12):

No. I have this thing that you put a blade in here and then you turn this metal thing and then it turns another metal thing inside of it and it rips all the hairs out. To be honest with you, I only do it once a year.

Caleb Beaver (14:23):

Yeah, when they get super gnarly.

Sevan Matossian (14:26):

This headset does sound well if I start seeing them.

Caleb Beaver (14:29):


Sevan Matossian (14:29):

Okay. You know what I mean? Yeah. If my kids are trying to do a rope climb on my nose, I’m like, okay. These things. I’m glad you like these. They’re the road ones. They’re the first time I’ve used ’em. I’m pretty excited about ’em. I’m really excited about ’em. Audio is fine. Spectacular. Good. Yeah, those Yep. And this mic comes out. You don’t have to keep that mic there. Extremely comfortable.

Caleb Beaver (14:58):

The mic is pretty good still. Even

Sevan Matossian (15:02):

Sana. I remember you telling the story of a behind the scenes interview that you were really liking and afterwards realized the mic was turned off or not connected. Please don’t do that again. Thank you. Diana. That was with

Caleb Beaver (15:13):

Carrie Pierce.

Sevan Matossian (15:16):

Was it with? The one I really remember is I had filmed all day and a lot of the filming I did was with Neil Maddox when he got bit by a jellyfish doing a test swim one night at the games and it was so good. The footage and then I didn’t have any audio. I have brought several sets of headsets.

Caleb Beaver (15:41):

Are those the same ones you used to film that running movie?

Sevan Matossian (15:46):

They’ve been, maybe I’ve had these forever. They’re like falling apart and frame.

Caleb Beaver (15:50):

They look like it.

Sevan Matossian (15:52):

So why stop at Starbucks? Why not just wear adult diapers like our current president? I opened up a new pair of nano twos for this trip. I went with straight black, perfect. Treading. So clean.

Caleb Beaver (16:14):

I just got some two and I think they’re different.

Sevan Matossian (16:17):

The new ones?

Caleb Beaver (16:18):


Sevan Matossian (16:19):

Are you going to bring ’em with you? We can compare.

Caleb Beaver (16:21):

Yeah, I will.

Sevan Matossian (16:24):

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you what you’ve been waiting for.

Chase Ingraham (16:30):

Mr. J, you looked lonely.

Sevan Matossian (16:34):

Hey, were you just doing the dishes or something? Look at you. You look so vulnerable. Like you were just doing some domestic shit dishes, taking out the trash.

Chase Ingraham (16:41):

Laundry dishes. Children. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (16:44):

Cutting nose hairs. Where are you buddy?

Chase Ingraham (16:46):

Sevan Matossian (16:53):


Chase Ingraham (16:53):

What? My wife is downstairs probably rolling her eyes right now.

Sevan Matossian (16:57):

Were you just like, I’m going to go upstairs and check on the kids and then she sees you pop on the podcast? No,

Chase Ingraham (17:01):

We were on the couch. I’m like, I’m going to go upstairs and get on the show. You’re a good dude. God, I love you. You’re a good dude. I was like, you look lonely up there. I’m just going pop in and to say hi.

Jethro Cardona first for the coffee. Thank you. I can’t keep up with the chat, dude. It’s nuts.

Chase Ingraham (17:46):

Dude, they broke the chat on our last podcast.

Sevan Matossian (17:50):

Oh wow. Show off.

Chase Ingraham (17:52):

No, the one that you came on.

Sevan Matossian (17:54):

Oh good. Yeah. What was your time for the burpees? Sub five? Dude, I did 10 on the minute for 10 minutes and I’m going to tell you with this new body of mine, it was kind of too easy. That was the first time. It was too easy. Usually a hard, I only ate nine out of the last 18 days. Chase, I have a,

Chase Ingraham (18:13):

Oh yeah, I saw what that 24 on. 24 off.

Sevan Matossian (18:16):

Yeah, for nine days.

Chase Ingraham (18:18):


Sevan Matossian (18:19):

And then broke it with Popeye’s. I think that’s the way you’re supposed to do it.

Chase Ingraham (18:22):

My wife said I should take my glasses on.

Sevan Matossian (18:25):

Oh, you look fine. You just look domesticated.


Ash V. So freaking stoked for this. You go above and beyond for us. Thank you. Hey, this weekend I’m going to go till the wheels fall off. How we dot sporty. Beth is on the phone with the police. Nah, stop. Stop. You’re going to get me in trouble. Stop, stop, stop. It’s going to be good. It’s going to be good. It’s all nothing but love. I’m going to bury the hatchet with anyone who wants to bury the hatchet. Beck Leach Australia is so pumped for behind the scenes. Have you listened to Dave’s latest weekend review? I did so much attention for just little me. Do you know what’s funny is no one’s even going to see me. You have to understand. No one. I’m going to be hidden.

Chase Ingraham (19:13):

I don’t know. Are you worried that you’ll be able to do your job the right way with everybody probably trying to find you. I

Sevan Matossian (19:23):

I’ll be in the media pit with that big old hat on that. Hopefully Katie and Bill, I can get one from.

Chase Ingraham (19:28):

I’ll be in the meat of pit wearing this exact thing. No one will know who it is.

Sevan Matossian (19:32):

I won’t have this on. I won’t have this on. And I’ll have my head down and I’ll have my headphones on and I’ll be just, this is my plan and whatever the plan is, works or doesn’t work, I’m going to follow all the bubble athletes that want to be followed. So if I’m following you in the first few days, you know that I think

Chase Ingraham (19:51):

In 33rd place, if I’m following

Sevan Matossian (19:53):

Around, but I love some of these people. I can’t wait to put my camera up in Ant Haynes’s face and Shelby Neil and Paige Za and just Warriors. You know what I mean? And some of those people might win some events even so they could have some outlier skills. So I am going to get all in there. I’m going to break the ice with some other people and hopefully milk some of the coaches, the Kotler’s, the Torres, the ahas, try to cuddle up with O’Keefe and Fraser and then I’m just going to work. I’m going to grind Athlete Village, a warmup area, field of play, as much stuff as I can get in the war room with Dave. No one’s going to see me. No one’s going to see me. That

Chase Ingraham (20:38):

Would be interesting,

Sevan Matossian (20:40):

Exciting for this whole CF event. Thank you Sevan and crew for the hard work. No one sees you Chase.

Chase Ingraham (20:47):

No. Although I’m easy to find in the Coliseum. We’re just out there in the middle

Sevan Matossian (20:55):

And there’s a social etiquette that everyone knows. Hey, the dude’s live on some sort of,

Chase Ingraham (21:01):

Yeah, I think they know that. What if you got pied, I would probably take it. Well, you would. You’re a good dude. And then poorly in private. Oh my

Sevan Matossian (21:16):

God. Someone bring the sign. I love you,

Chase Ingraham (21:19):

Chase. No, don’t do that. Yes, I

Sevan Matossian (21:21):

Love you chasing Sean Stevon. Can you say hi to Superman? Sam Hamman? Yeah, of course. Sam’s my boy, Sam Hamman. You the man. I’ll be coming out to Australia to see you in a few weeks flying back with an Haynes. Any chance Greg Glassman will make the final cut for the behind the scenes if I see him. That’s another thing he actually asked me. He said, Hey, are we going to hang? I’m like, dude,

Chase Ingraham (21:47):


Sevan Matossian (21:48):

Going to be swamped.

Chase Ingraham (21:50):


Sevan Matossian (21:51):

Going to get buried underneath a mound of people. Okay, I would like to talk about the sport a little bit. Matthew Murphy. Thanks Devon. Can’t wait for the behind the scenes. Rooting for Vellner to get this done. Vellner. Another one. I’ll be all up. Be all up in Vellner. Shit. Loving on the Vellner, staring deeply into his translucent skin. Jacqueline Robinson. Thank you. What’s up,

Chase Ingraham (22:18):

Jackie? Dude, that mic sounds good.

Sevan Matossian (22:22):

Thank you. Cool, right? Yeah, I’m glad you’re saying that. This is the first time I’ve taken this out.

Chase Ingraham (22:27):

I told you.

Sevan Matossian (22:29):

Well, thank you.

Chase Ingraham (22:30):

Road’s got good stuff.

Sevan Matossian (22:33):

Those headphones sound pretty great. Oh, this doesn’t sound like a compliment.

Chase Ingraham (22:46):

I mean, at least he says it’s better than so

Sevan Matossian (22:51):

Duh. John Young says, I can come on for 20 minutes if you want me. Duh. I prefer you only for five. Phil

Chase Ingraham (23:01):

Axio. Good and really small batches. Yes.

Sevan Matossian (23:06):

Look at this profile pic.

Caleb Beaver (23:10):

That’s so good.

Sevan Matossian (23:12):

Oh man. Yes, John. Yes. The link is in the group chat. Son of a Janelle Winston rewatch birthday episode. So good. Buy some gum for the seven Easts who get to hang with us this weekend. Please do not Anyone go back and watch the birthday episode. Ever

Caleb Beaver (23:27):

Do it.

Sevan Matossian (23:28):

Do not do that.

Chase Ingraham (23:30):

The birthday episode,

Caleb Beaver (23:31):

Dude, you want to see someone just break down, just an emotional

Chase Ingraham (23:39):

Wreck. Nice.

Caleb Beaver (23:42):

It’s so good. A lot of love. A lot

Chase Ingraham (23:44):

Of love for that little man. Sevy

Sevan Matossian (23:47):

Will be hidden behind me as I vet all of you. Remember. No hugs. Just reach around. Thank you, Jeremy. World. Facts. Facts. Mark Fuentes. What were some of the rules Dave gave you?


In all honesty, my point of contact is not Dave. My point of contact is Heather Lawrence, director of operations, very senior person at the games. Been there for many years. I think she was even there when I was there. Very low key. Not a, there’s a lot of big players actually who are low key. Wouldn’t you say that people don’t know who are big players? Yes. And she has become my point of contact and she gave me the rules and then the ones that I didn’t understand, I think she’s going to explain to me tomorrow. I go to the venue in the morning tomorrow and they’ll be like, Hey, don’t stand there. Don’t stand there. I think those are the only rules. And then the rest is just common sense and dignity and integrity and politeness. You know what I mean? They said this thing, they sent this thing that says, Hey, be nice to the athletes. And then they sent this thing to the athletes. Be nice to the media. No athlete needs to be nice to me. No one needs to be nice to me. I don’t care. I will be nice to everyone no matter what. There will be no savon there. I will vanish. That’s why I’m not going to have a problem doing my job.

Chase Ingraham (25:13):

She liked our shock color idea, by the way.

Sevan Matossian (25:16):


Chase Ingraham (25:17):


Sevan Matossian (25:18):

Oh, she did.

Chase Ingraham (25:19):

She’s like, I got a couple hot collars for my dog. Oh.

Sevan Matossian (25:27):

So I think the only rules are basically, hey, don’t, in all the years I did behind the scenes, no one ever complained. And there’s certain places that you can’t be standing like in front of a clock. If that happens, someone would just come over and slap you around, tell you not to do that shit. But obviously I’m not going to be in the, someone asked Justin Maderis, what if Savon approaches you during this time? And Justin said, well, I would have to punch him in the face. I’ve never, any athlete that I would approach during some really intense time, I would have to have some crazy deep connection with already. And yeah, it’s not even a, I feel like I’m so sensitive to that. So anyway, I’m pumped.

Chase Ingraham (26:17):

You’re an empath.

Sevan Matossian (26:18):

Empath. Yes. Okay.

Chase Ingraham (26:23):


Sevan Matossian (26:23):

Talk about rule number one. Don’t be a jerk yet at all. At all. Someone’s like, Hey asshole. Get out of my face. Yes sir. I’m just there to get footage. I’m not there to, I’m not there to do anything else. Let’s talk about some of these workouts. Can we just talk about what we know? Can we just lay out? That’s all I want to know. Someone educate me. I don’t even know. Shit’s being released all over the place, right?

Chase Ingraham (26:44):


Sevan Matossian (26:46):

Oh, I can’t wait to talk about, give me a second

John Young (26:48):

Guys. I can’t hear y’all. I got to fix

Sevan Matossian (26:49):

It. I can’t wait to talk about alpaca. Alpaca,

Chase Ingraham (26:55):


Sevan Matossian (26:56):

Alpaca. Okay. Is there a page where all the workouts, you know how they have a calendar

Chase Ingraham (27:03):

Under workouts, even though they’re called,

Sevan Matossian (27:10):

Hey, have you had any thoughts Chase yet? Like, Ooh, this is, I am in a chat. And people are like, oh shit. If Ricky was here, he’d be cleaning up. Have you had any thoughts like, oh my God, this is a great thing for people who have great runners. Anything just jump out at you yet

Chase Ingraham (27:25):

So far? Yeah, I think I texted people and I was like, man, I bet Ricky would really like these. Oh,

Sevan Matossian (27:30):

That was, you said that. Okay. I knew someone said that.

Chase Ingraham (27:34):

Yeah. I mean you look back at what Ricky did in 2017 when he won Cycle Cross, which is kind of what this ride is starting to look like a little bit. And then his skillset in good classic grindy CrossFit style events. And that’s the pig chipper. That’s the alpaca. I mean, Justin Kottler last year was furious that he didn’t get a full alpaca because of the legless rope climbs that were in there. Ricky would’ve won the CrossFit games if they did it like this.

Sevan Matossian (28:04):

Oh, that alpaca is the one where it rained?

Chase Ingraham (28:07):

Yes. And they took the rope climbs out.

Sevan Matossian (28:10):

Wow. Nice work, Adrian. Brilliant. Right, bringing that back then. Brilliant. Oh, and Rick, so Ricky does win day one, you’re saying for sure wins. Wins event

Chase Ingraham (28:19):

One. I don’t think Sure

Sevan Matossian (28:20):

Wins what?

Chase Ingraham (28:21):

But I mean he would be a top three Favorite to win event One.

Sevan Matossian (28:27):

Who else? In the boys

Chase Ingraham (28:30):

Ko. For which

John Young (28:31):


Sevan Matossian (28:32):

John coming in hot. Yeah. Number one. I said I was telling Chase, so Ricky wins day one. Easy. And he’s like, well, top three probably.

Chase Ingraham (28:40):

Yeah. Y Lazar. I mean

John Young (28:45):

For day one or just the bike ride.

Chase Ingraham (28:47):


Sevan Matossian (28:48):

Ride, you mean? Because Lazar would just come in a lap early. He’s got like,

Chase Ingraham (28:51):

Well see now he can’t do that because it’s just 40 minutes. So they just count him for Oh, nice. He doesn’t have to count. He just rides.

Sevan Matossian (28:59):

Oh, that’s going to be interesting. So they’re going to need someone who’s counting every athlete.

Chase Ingraham (29:03):

I think they’ll be chipped. I mean they were chipped,

Sevan Matossian (29:06):


Chase Ingraham (29:06):

In event one last year. They were chipped. They knew who did and didn’t do it. They just had to get it all squared away at the end.

Sevan Matossian (29:13):

So Janowski, Lazar and Ricky would be the So you think Lazar Janowski are going to win the bike ride?

Chase Ingraham (29:21):

Yeah. Well yeah. Let’s talk about the guys that’ll be here. So I think he got third at Cyclecross in 2017. Technically second, I guess if you take Ricky out, let’s see. B k G was the top five. Oddly enough. Jason Smith was the top five.

Sevan Matossian (29:37):

Oh, no kidding. You have

John Young (29:38):

Adlers around there too.

Sevan Matossian (29:40):

Yeah. Hey, I thought Dave handled Jason Smith. That was the best part of the video. Yeah, he did. I thought he handled Jason Smith with Dignity. And it reminded me again that we’re a family. It’s all a family. It’s all a family. Even if it’s one of our own, it’s still in the family. Still in the family. Well, you can tell he liked Jason a lot too. And that sucks.
