2023 Unbound 200 winner Keegan Swenson (Santa Cruz Hit Squad) joins Amanda and Bill to chat about his early racing career and chasing success in international cross-country mountain biking, his transition to an endurance athlete and gravel racer and how this year's Unbound played out. Along with his Unbound victory, Keegan has a closet full of national champion jerseys from XCO, XCC and marathon MTB as well as wins at Leadville 100, Telluride 100, Breckenridge Epic, and Pikes Peak Apex.
