In this episode:

The recent doping scandal has rocked triathlon and made many question if the sport is as clean as they think. I review the science on what agents dopers use, whether or not they actually improve performance and the shocking numbers of age group athletes that admit to using some form of banned substance in order to get an edge. Plus, an interview with the founder and owner of Varlo the triathlon apparel brand that has taken multisport by storm. Soj Jibowu has infused the company with a work ethic and enthusiasm that only partially explains its success. We talk about the company's philosophy and how their mission is to make triathlon more inclusive for whoever wants to participate.
