This week on the podcast, we talk to Tony Seagrave, father to Tahnée and Kaos, head of FMD Racing, and half of MarshGuard, to find out what being the father of two of the fastest and most stylish riders on the circuit is really like. We discuss Tony's background growing up riding BMX in London, his decision to move the family to Morzine, how the kids got into racing, the challenges of running a team, and much more. Hit play and give it a listen.

 My other half overheard me listening to this, and she just walked into the room and said "we're going to name one of our son's Kaos" and walked right back out. Color me confused, pleased, and full of questions.

 Great episode, always wondered how these guys (and other small teams) managed for cash etc, i really dont think many truly i=understand that moolar needed to travel the world in this way and compete, as well as live life day ti day, in fact i reckon its even harder than stated in the video, great passion and commitment to keep it all going.

Anyway, good podcast - cheers

 What other team has a lead female? Not spe sh, not trek ( they have two lead riders gee and Rachel). Not polygon, not commercial, not pivot @spaceofades:

 @freeridejerk888: Saracen/Madison with Manon before she retired was team #1 rider. (Just as Tahnee was up and coming)

 @freeridejerk888: It could be argued that YT is now led by a female junior.

 Now. In this day and age. Not 7 years ago when tahneee started. What I'm saying is fmd racing started with a female lead but no other team did @njparider:
