The Packfiller Podcast
The place for any bad, or dumb ass who has ever straddled a top tube. News, commentary, and humor from the worlds of cycling, triathlon, duathlon, and road/trail running.

Off the chain. Packfiller is LIVE at River City Brewing in Spokane, Washington with smart asses Paul Main, Ted Chauvin (both previous guests) and Nigel Davies to talk roadie death, the Vuelta, and participate in Packfiller Trivia.

Yeah... so. Sometimes I should just shut the heck up. I know, I teased a friend on the show, but, well, life gets in the way. 

So, I give you, an interview with myself. 

By the way, the race is getting serious.

Just when I think everything is in order, the weekend goes all haywire. Tour de France catch up before the Alps, and a rant on being nice.

It takes a big man to admit he was wrong. I am a big man.

Perhaps earpieces are mind control devices. All I know is, something wrong is going on tactically...

A great opportunity to speak with a pioneer of American cycling, Hall of Fame Inductee George Mount

I'm still shaking. So much going on today. Things might be a bit frantic today, as the update was recorded immediately after the broadcast, with little show prep prior. I had to get this off my chest. Explicit rating earned here.

Spoiler free! No need to hit pause. 

A shorty, but a bit sentimental. Kind of like Cav.

A slight bombshell on a otherwise 'normal' day in the TDF.

OK, I'll talk about the elephant in the room, and then move on. The GC gets interesting, and the sprints, and cycling in general, get kicked in the balls.

No. Not okay. 

I'm pissed. 

A great friend and passionate cyclist, Paul Main in studio to help me get through all of the drama of stage 4 of the 2017 Tour de France.

Might want to look up Liberace and Jeff Spicoli before listening to today's update on Stage 2.

Pat's excited about the Classics, pissed about the coverage, and sad about the loss of a great one. To make up for it, a great talk with Mara Abbott.

Pat's midlife crisis comes to the forefront, along with his hatred for running. The good news is a great interview with Shonny Vanlandingham will make everything better.

What the hell is happening? Pat is actually talking about running, and road cycling is getting pushed out for 'everyone gets a trophy' mentalities. Ted Chauvin, long time friend of the podcast, in studio to decide the fate.
