IMTalk Episode 907 - Mike Pigg

In the second of our holiday shows we have an interview that we did with Mike Plant years ago. Here’s what we wrote about Mike when he was on the show: Mike Pigg is recognised as one of the toughest athletes ever. Here's what Macca said about Mike 'Mike Pigg, in my honest opinion, was the most hard-core racer the sport had ever seen. He was an absolute monster on the bike and had so much heart he was inspiring to watch. He was all heart and pushed himself so hard you could see it in his face. Actually I think Piggy won most of his races out of sheer heart, and is so often an athlete who is forgotten from this great era.' In the late 80's there was a period where he was almost unbeatable. He was known for being an amazing biker and an all around good guy.

IMTalk Episode 906 – Mike Plant

Mike was an early leader in the sport of triathlon, where as a journalist, photographer, media consultant and publisher he helped introduce the fledgling sport to a generation of mainstream journalists.  Triathletemagazine in 1986 called him the “Dean of Triathlon Writers,” a modest accolade considering the number of triathlon there were at the time, but it was, if nothing else, indicative of his influence in the sport.
