Professional riders Ryan Peatry and Alexey Vermuelen both agree that cycling sports need to be more accessible and inclusive. Peatry, a mountain biker, and Vermuelen, a road cyclist, recognize the barriers beginner cyclists face when it comes to buying gear, training, and finding the motivation to race competitively. They’ve made it their mission to help new cyclists surmount those obstacles, and in Outside TV’s new series From the Ground Up they work to show that anyone with enough determination can race with the pros. Over the course of the five-part series, the expert riders train three people who recently picked up cycling for the infamous Leadville Trail 100 Mountain Bike Race in Colorado, one of the most demanding bike races in the country. Peatry and Vermuelen provide the participants with gear and take them through grueling distance and high-altitude training to help prepare for the race in only a few months. Catch the first episode on Outside TV this week ahead of the 2021 Leadville 100 on August 14.
