Pete Stetina Uses Marginal Gains to Set a White Rim FKT

2020 has been a rough year for traditional racing, but has brought a surge in interest in Everests and Fastest Known Time (FKT) efforts on well-known courses. And for these solo, pride-of-place FKT attempts, Marginal Gains matter. In this episode, WorldTour-Pro-Roadie-Turned-Gravel-Privateer Pete Stetina nerds out with Josh, Fatty, & Hottie about his preparation for — and execution of — an FKT around the choppy, sandy, rocky, windy White Rim: a perfect MTB century loop in Canyonlands, Utah.

  1. Great episode, as always.

    I have a follow up question for a future Ask Josh Anything episode. It looks like Pete has a dual remote lockout on his Lux. On a route like Pete just crushed, under what conditions should a rider leave their suspension locked out and when should they open it up? In what conditions will a locked out suspension system descend faster than one that’s full open? Will locked suspension always lead to climbing faster?
