The MX Endurance podcast was started in 2012 by Chris McCormack and Michael Gilliam as MaccaX Uncensored and has now been running for over 8 years.

What originally started as some of the hottest and most controversial takes in triathlon has turned into an informative and fun look at the happenings in the world of endurance sport.

The MX Endurance podcast aims to talk to the biggest names in triathlon and provide interesting and alternative views from the many different facets of the sport.

The show has hosted multiple World Champions from all distances including Olympic medalists, Kona and 70.3 World Champions as well as rising stars and triathlon professionals from around the world.

The show is now hosted by Tim Ford and James Bale who are both huge fans of the sport. Tim and James come from different backgrounds with different journeys through the sport but are able to use their differences to provide light hearted, fun and informative discussion as well as ask questions that wouldn’t normally be asked.
