RT Talks: Josh Carlson – Life as a pro-mountain biker

We are introducing a series of Rocky Trail Vlogs – we have missed our #rockytrailracers and crew in this COVID-19 hibernation and are recording chats with them to share them with our community.

Josh Carlson and Martin Wisata talk about training, racing, resting, covid19, e-bikes and much more.

An absolute fascinating insight into his pro racing life – Martin and Josh start chatting about how Josh started out as a young rider with a sponsored bike and Josh then shares his story from getting a pro-contract with the GIANT Factory Racing team to shredding the Enduro World Series. He candidly talks about how he matured from the “loud Aussie” to an entrepreneur with a very clear vision and explains why (and how) he prepares to race the EWS on an e-Bike… engine mapping anyone?

Listen to Josh talk about his absolute lows and the awesome highs of a pro-career and what it takes to make it – engaging for experienced and young Rocky Trail shredders alike, we think!

Recorded in April 2020 – watch the video or listen to the audio podcast below.

Thanks, Josh, for your time – it was such a pleasure to catch up!
