157: Be In the Moment with Ekaterina Rakhmatulina (Episode 153)

In this Episode

Our guest this week is ultra endurance cyclist and 2023 Colorado Trail women’s champion Ekaterina (Katya) Rakhmatulina. Not only did she win the Colorado Trail race, Katya also set a new women’s record at the race, which was her third bike packing race of the season. She also raced the Tour Divide this past June and finished closely behind friend of podcast Lael Wilcox, in just over 17 days. We hear what inspired Katya to go from bike touring for fun to racing with some of the best in the world, as well as how she biked from Michigan to California to get herself to graduate school, and what her plans are for next race season.
