  • I couldn’t resist it. There was so much “no” that needed turning into “yes”. The chance of failure was extremely high and nobody appears to have had a go before. Isn’t that why idiots like me do these things? Dare I say that isn’t it quite the definition of adventure?

    Can't really argue with that...

  • You can. Too many people lose their lives in the Highlands every year due to bravado like that.

  • Does it come across as bravado when you read it? They're both experienced riders/experienced outdoors, they seem well prepared, well planned and still smart enough to call it quits when conditions were obviously against them.

  • Looking forward to the race this year. Strong List! No Javi tho :(


  • Sofiane is on the list.
    Also good to see Angus Young, no 42, showing that old rockers can still do extreme things!

  • hopefully its a full tribute w/ school boy outfit and Gibson SG

  • Bump. I know @skinny is riding this year, is anyone else from here?

  • Looking forward to the race this year. Strong List! No Javi tho :(

    I don't see his name down this year either, although he is currently in Scotland

  • I do not belive so but I don't know all names.

  • I think the top few will be Huw Oliver ,James Craven and James Hayden.

    Rooting for the Leicester Forest legend , Mike Sheldrake.

  • And Josh Ibbett, no?

  • Good shout , that seems like the top 4 to me.

  • oh nice. I got a bit pissy and logged straight off when i saw the new site but its actually not that bad.

  • i got dropped by Mike on Zwift so rooting for him and Skinny of course :)

  • Think Liam Glen will be one to watch as well - he won it in 2016

  • Awsome , Mike is a cool guy with an impressive Ultra cycling background.

    Liam is very fast too . seems like a strong field , wish I was lining up and not sat at my desk.

  • Be interested to see how Liam Glen goes, he did the 2020 BB200 in about 14 hours or some such nonsense.

  • Quilt, no mat, don't want to get too comfy!


  • Liam Glen's rigid single speed

  • nice set up w/ homemade bags
