Today I’m joined by Canadian rider, Magnus Manson. Magnus has had an incredible riding career so far, taking a silver medal at Junior World Champs in Val di Sole, the Canadian national title in 2018 and a top 20 in elite World Champs in Lenzerheide. The last few years have been rough for Magnus. He suffered a huge injury in 2020 which took a huge amount of drive and focus to recover from. Not long after getting back on the bike, Magnus was diagnosed with Stage 3 Hodgkin Lymphoma, a type of blood cancer. Magnus recently found out that he was in remission and we sat down to hear his incredible story. I was blown away by Magnus’ resilience and determination and I hope everyone finds some inspiration in this episode. So sit back, hit play and listen to this episode with Magnus Manson.

 As a challenge to all you long haired hippy type Pinkers. Donate you hair to Wigs4kids or equivalent. Better yet also set up a fundraiser at the same time. I donated my Covid hair and raised a bunch of cash from people who hated my long hair. If you cant do this support any local or national agency of your choice every little bit helps.
