#11 TAYLOR PHINNEY

We thought we knew Taylor Phinney.
It turns out we didn't know Taylor Phinney.

Taylor used to race bikes, he was one of the best the USA has ever produced, yet he abruptly pulled the pin on his professional career in 2019 as a 29yr old. He hasn't stopped riding bikes, in fact he's discovered a style of cycling that is about as far removed from racing as is possible, and in the process he's found himself.

Mikkel B. Rasmussen and David Millar interview Taylor separately: Mikkel from Copenhagen and David atop a hill, next to a chapel, near Girona while on a mountain bike ride.

This generous Yoga Sesh has been seriously upgraded with MUSIC mixed by DiscoNektar a.k.a. Taylor Phinney. You will love the musical alchemy as you go on an archaeological dig into your inner landscape and re-remember that you have the desire and capacity for both inner connection and connection with the outer world.

Suggested props: 1-2 blocks and a bolster

A note from Taylor and track list below!

This is a Yoga class from @yoga-sesh with a mix of songs recorded to flow with the class.
As a boulder native, I have spent the last couple of years attending Caitlin’s classes at the Yoga Pod or The Little Yoga Studio. Since I was racing bikes professionally, I would spend half of the year traveling in Europe, basing myself in Spain. I could never find the same yoga vibe as we have in Colorado so I became very grateful to have Yoga Sesh podcasts in my living room.
At the beginning of March I came over to Europe for what was meant to be a 3 week vacation to visit with my girlfriend before she starts her cycling season (she also races, I just retired). Two weeks in we were forced into lockdown with nowhere to go. We spent 7 weeks inside our apartment unable to leave the house for any physical exercise, only to get groceries or go to pharmacy. I spent this time doing Yoga Sesh podcasts and learning more about a music program I use called Ableton. I had always used the program to make my own music but never to mix tracks from other artists. In this time I learned to mix and hosted some very small isolation dance parties.

This episode of Yoga Sesh, Inner Archaeology, is one of my favorite flows and I noticed that at the beginning of the class there is some background audio from a class next door that doesn’t quite fit. I thought it would be informative to learn how to remove that background audio while still keeping the audio of the voice in tact. Since I took most of the low end out of the audio to get rid of the background noise, I thought music could create a nice foundation--I started playing tracks to the flow since I had taken the class many times and felt like I had a good grasp of what kind of music could accompany Caitlin's guidance. I had a lot of fun with it and reached out to CRK to see if she would be into it. I was nervous at first because her flows are like works of art in themselves and I wanted to do them justice. She ended up liking it and with some more little tweaks here it is :)

Taylor has a very colourful career up until now. Born from sporting genes, both his parents being Olympic medalists, he was destined to be a sporting star.

But sometimes we need a pause in life, time to reflect on where we are going, who we are, and then who we want to become. Most often than not we don’t take this time unless it is forced upon us. And I believe in many ways some things really happen for a reason. In Taylor’s case in 2014 he had a career and life changing crash. It removed him from the sporting “bubble” and gave him time to reflect. This is the Taylor we know today. Still an athletic talent, but with a much more open perspective

Open Mic with Mike Creed - Ep 25 Taylor Phinney

Play

THIS EPISODE Mike gets together with a man who needs no introduction. At the tender age of 23, BMC's Taylor Phinney can list on his resumé: Olympian, Worlds Medalist, U23 World Champion, Junior World Champion, US Track Champion, US Time Trial Champion, heartthrob of the peloton, and all around snappy dresser. Mike visits Taylor at his home in Boulder and is introduced to Phinney's "high class frat house lifestyle," as Taylor dubs it. The two kick back and pleasantly pass the time chatting about the correct pronunciation of Phil Gaimon's name, the value of early social media training, how avoiding dating improves cycling performance, saddle sore woes, hoping for the most-loved award in the peloton, and Olympic girlfriends. Along the way they also cover what it's like to be the child of cycling legends, saddle sore woes, being the brash young American on a stacked international World Tour team, surviving the grind of the BMC racing schedule, and what the future holds. We guarantee you're going to be thoroughly entertained by this thoughtful, intelligent, and fascinating conversation with one of the bright stars of the cycling world. Open Mic with Mike Creed is sponsored by The Colorado Cyclist, Mike’s very first professional cycling team in 1998.
