Debbie Dust hops on the phone to discuss the landscape of Domestic Pro Cycling and how it's changed. We discuss a bit of what it means to be a pro and/or at what level is sponsorship seeking and crowdfunding really just having friends pay for your hobby?

Note after the podcast from Debbie: "One other thing about being a "pro" that I didn't mention but is certainly something to include: a pro doesn't take to social media to complain and whine about "sketchy" riding that causes wrecks. A pro knows where to be in the group so they don't get sucked into the "sketchiness." If you don't know "how" to race, yeah, you're going to wreck. Go learn how to race. I was wrecked relatively infrequently in all my years of racing and have very few scars and injuries tied to those years. Even when I wasn't the strongest rider, I still know how to race and ride intelligently. I also never called anyone out unless they were being lazy cuz that's not racing. It's just being an a-hole."
