Ep. 44: Saddle sores/Diversity in triathlon, Linus Pagusera

Long hours in the saddle can be uncomfortable but made even more so if you develop a saddle sore. For some people these painful lesions are recurrent and can be a significant problem during the summer months. What are saddle sores, how are they treated and most importantly how can they be prevented? In part 3 of my series on diversity in triathlon, I speak with Linus Pagusera, an Asian American with a love of the sport and some unique insights from the perspective of an immigrant and a member of another under represented community in multisport.
