Braydon Bringhurst on Climbing the Whole Enchilada (Ep.155)

Climbing 8,600 feet is a pretty big day on the bike no matter how you slice it, but it balloons into something else entirely when it’s going up the Whole Enchilada trail in Moab, Utah, with a commitment to pedaling every inch, and cleaning every move. But Braydon Bringhurst pulled off that wild feat, and produced the excellent 8600FT film about the effort, so we sat down with him to get the whole story, including a ton of insights into his mental approach, the immense level of preparation that went into the climb, his bike setup, and a whole lot more.
