By we, I refer to a group of sixteen cyclists clad in matching lycra, with one difference. Each of us belonged to either Team Deman or Team Garin. This is the story of how Race The World changed my life.
A brand new event has landed on the cycling scene called Race The World, a global bike race for amateurs, with the first leg kicking off on November 1st from LA and finishing in Miami on the 14th.
On Thursday 9th of July I decided to enter Race to The Stones, a 100km ultramarathon along The Ridgeway from Oxford to Avebury. On Saturday 11th July I ran 100kms in 13 hours 19 seconds. My first ultramarathon.
It's 5:38pm on the evening of Friday 26th June. Calves screaming, sweat dripping, lungs pumping and my pain face well and truly locked in, I've just passed the 400m mark on Chamonix's Vertical KM race and it's hurting like hell. I'm seriously starting to question my sanity.
