First of all, congratulations Paul, this event only accepts 350 entrants and this year it sold out in 2:38. Amazing.
Secondly, how cool is this race? That's rhetorical, it's freaking epic.
- It is 200 miles long.
- It is on dirt.
- It is a ROAD race for ROAD bikes.
- There is no support.
- Check out the scenery. Oh god, what amazing scenery…
