  1. I don’t understand; if he could catch them why can’t he beat them?
    Are there qualifications that he can’t achieve?
    I’m new to road biking. Just a casual bikepacking observer here lol. Forgive my ignorance. And ty for helping me understand the greatness of what was done.

  2. I can relate fully to Jack, I had a problem with drug abuse and was a street intrenched heroin addict after loosing my pro skateboarding career. I since have become a Cat 1 bike racer on the road, but see myself doing more ultra and more Ultra Gravel rides especially, I am very lucky to have sponsor support for most of these rides but I will never suffer like I suffered in addiction. So when I suffer on the bike I feel like its a privilege to suffer while doing something so fun in some beautiful areas of the world.

  3. Amazing athletic. Amazing achievement. Though the story telling and the doco is a big let down.

    Could have done in several different ways to make it a much better film. The guy already done all the hard work. When was the last time u seen this kind of doco and the athletic doing the talk and narrative instead of focusing on his journey (joy/pain/emotion). All we see is him whining for 30 mins in a tone that seems it was a big mistake doing this and im glad it's over. Never again.
