On Bikepacking and Unsupported Ultra Endurance Racing...
"My long time dream came true in 2012 when I completed the Tour Divide 21 days. I posted the 7th fastest time that year and record time for men over 50.
After finishing the Tour Divide I became a Bikepacking endurance junkie. Between 2012 and 2017 I competed in over twenty bikepacking races."
