The second Savage Point Series race happened this weekend, if you missed it then watch the live stream here!

We had Ryan Kempson reach out to us about wanting to come on the show and then realized that despite him being featured in 11 different episodes with in person interviews, he has never had an episode of his own!  We have been big fans of both Kempson brothers with them being from New England and genuinely being down to earth people so this is making up for lost time.

Ryan won the Savage Point Series last year and has been very vocal about wanting more competition in the Savage Series as well as other New England events like the Boston Spartan Sprint and Super, as well as FIT Challenge.

We talk about USOCR, some training methodology, social media, the future of the sport, the Savage Series, and much more!
