Jeff Kerkove loves to literally spend his day in the saddle. He has top results at some of the longest and hardest endurance mountain bike events in the USA. It never gets boring for Jeff, he just loves those varied high alpine routes that push the limits of the mind, body, and equipment. Afterwards he relaxes in front of his computer, surfing the net, and having a coffee. Jeff attaches great importance to these recovery phases. Simply, because he knows there is another long event or training session coming soon. In this interview we talk about: - His sporting background and how he got into mountain biking.– His work for Ergon USA and racing on the Topeka Ergon Team.– How he trains for ultra events and how he creates his year plan.– Recovery and dealing with the mental game.– His bucket list.
