In this episode, we talk with Alanna Columb. Alanna is an MTB rider from New Zealand who entered the game late, battled to get onto the WC Circuit, and then had one of the Gnarliest crashed I have ever heard about.

We chat about racing at the world cups, the stresses of being a privateer, alternative medicines, and the healing process involved from her injury.
