The competitive pinnacle of Sam Schultz's mountain biking career came during the 2012 Olympic games. In the years since, he's faced health challenges, a limited capacity to train and race, and the reality that his relationship with his bike and livelihood must change. Today we talk about how Sam has met these challenges to build an inspiring, productive, and sustainable career in the cycling industry. Sure, he lives in a van down by the river, but it's a damn nice van with some really sweet bikes in it. Not too bad! Sam is particularly excited about his efforts to launch a high school bike racing league in Montana. For more information, visit: http://www.montanamtb.org
