Team EN Interview Series Presents: Scott Giljum [PODCAST]

300 300 Patrick McCrann

Join Coach Patrick from Endurance Nation for another weekly endurance podcast. This week Scott Giljum is our guest in the Team Interview Series.

Scott joined the team in late 2012 after completing Ironman Louisville. He attended a pre-race talk, led by Coach Patrick on the Four Keys of Race Execution. Scott went on to set PRs at his next three IM Races. A brief foray into ultra running aggravated longstanding rugby issues, and Scott endured a few surgeries before pivoting to Gravel racing and two-wheeled adventures.

Scott has taking on a leadership role inside the Team by leading multiple rides on Zwift, both events and team races. He also became a Wicked Smart Member this year, nominated and selected by his teammates.

In this conversation, we talk about the transition across the lifespan of a sport and to a new sport, including:

  • Building an engine and performance expectations
  • Walking the path of transition from sport to sport
  • The change in strategy in different types of events.

We also cover some of the industry changes during Covid, including racing being about more than a medal — it’s the shared experience.
