John – 21st/22nd January 2017 – Strathpuffer 24.
“Freezing temperatures. 17 hours of darkness. Miles upon miles of gruelling terrain. A brutal mix of ice, wind, hail, mud and snow. And maybe, just maybe, a glorious Scottish winter sunrise…
When it comes to mountain bike challenges, they don’t come much tougher or more rewarding than the Strathpuffer – the legendary 24 hour mountain bike endurance event held every year in the Highlands of Scotland in the middle of winter.”
Completed the event as part of a team of 4 (mainly from the Bike Craft Cartell team). We completed 29 laps, coming 28th out of 133 in the quads – not bad 🙂
